A new challenger has appeared. Apple is no longer the only one doing frivolous lawsuits; now, they are at the receiving end of one! Yes, it's true, one of Apple's stores, with its slick and modern design, "caused" an 83 year old woman to break her nose by walking into the glass--guess they use Windex!

As a result of the collision, Grandmother Evelyn Paswall is suing the company for a cool $1 million. Her lawyer explains:

There were no markings on the glass or they were inadequate. My client is an octogenarian. She sees well, but she did not see any glass.

Apple wants to be cool and modern and have the type of architecture that would appeal to the tech crowd, but on the other hand, they have to appreciate the danger that this high-tech modern architecture poses to some people.

This will most likely settle out of court, as most lawsuits of this nature due. It remains to be seen if Apple's warning labels will be adjusted to be more visible. Besides, this isn't the first time this has happened: two other customers suffered minor injuries after colliding with the glass. Apple introduced the warning labels after these events.
