Henrico County iBook T-ShirtFrom the “You’ll never hear this about a Dell laptop sale” department: A rush to purchase US$50 used iBooks turned into a violent stampede Tuesday, with people getting thrown to the pavement, beaten with a folding chair and nearly driven over. The Associated Press has more coverage reporting that “One woman went so far as to wet herself rather than surrender her place in line.”
WWBT NBC12 News is also covering the stampede and has posted a video. My favorite aspect of this story is the t-shirts (pictured) now being sold on eBay (t-shirt #2).
