We’ve all been there before. We need to visit a “genius” to check a problem, so we schedule an appointment at the genius bar. Unfortunately, the only available time is one when you have to bring your kid along. You walk up the beautiful clear staircase and walk to the perfectly laid out genius bar and have a seat. Your child sits sees a table his size and wants to play with the flawless iMac sitting at the table. But should you let him sit on the black, spongy ball Apple uses as a chair? Probably not! It has recently been revealed that these spongy balls are the perfect and inviting environment for a child to urinate on. Yes, you heard it right. Those trendy looking balls they call seats might be covered in pee. This troubling finding is surprising if you consider all of the money Apple spends attempting to ensure a aesthetically pleasing and unique customer experience.
Everything Apple does revolves around user experience. Their user interface for their operating system is known for its ease of use. The exterior of their products are known for their sleek design. They are one of the few technology companies who truly believe that what is on the outside is just as important as what is on the inside. Even the employees at the Apple store look trendy and cool. That is why it is such a huge surprise that they would allow such a disgusting thing to happen in their stores. While this will not likely have a huge affect on the company’s bottom line, it does make you wonder what else could be going on. If their quality control for something as simple as furniture is tainted, this could perhaps be an indication of other misgivings inside of the Apple store.
While the passing of the legendary CEO Steve Jobs likely has nothing to do with this, the company has experienced issues ever since. The stock, which had reached all time highs, is beginning to come back down to reality. Many so-called “fanboys” have been vocally critical of the latest releases of new products, including the latest version of the iPad. Again, this pee incident has little to do with what is going on with the company in regards to business decisions, it is kind of like a microcosm of what is happening to the company. One thing is for sure, they need to get rid of those spongy chairs and opt for a more traditional seat.
