Apple employees can't stop banging their heads against the walls

Apple got a painful reminder that design and safety aren't friends

Although the campus opened last September for the 10th anniversary iPhone introduction, it was done under a temporary occupancy permit, and Apple employees just started moving in last month.

The problem stems from Apple's extensive use of glass in constructing the buildings on the campus. The building provides glass-based viewing portals of this park along with views of the landscape surrounding the building's exterior. And therein lies the problem- Apple employees keep crashing into the fancy glass windows, which calls into the question the safety of the design.

According to a Bloomberg report and our favourite "Friday story" in a while, Apple workers are making habit of walking into the panes of glass.

Researchers Discover A Single Letter Can Crash The iPhone
Having said that, the tech giant has also announced last month that it is bringing a new firmware update for Apple devices. In such cases, the entire iOS Springboard or the software running the home screen could end up crashing.

Bloomberg's Mark Bergen reports on a flaw at Apple's new headquarters: Distracted employees seem to keep smacking their faces into the flawless glass panes that make up the offices' interior workspaces, and they're hurting themselves, "according to people familiar with the incidents".

I'd imagine bumping into these glass panes hurt quite a lot, although it's not clear if Apple will be taking any actions to better protect employees.

The irony is delicious that Apple employees were too glued to their iPhones to notice the harms they're bringing upon themselves, but, legally speaking, Apple may be subjected to a workplace violation.

No word on whether Apple's much shorter spaceship office suffers from similar issues. "The achievement is to make a building where so many people can connect and collaborate and walk and talk", Ive told Wired in May. Unfortunately, these papers reportedly disappear because "they detract from the building's design"-perhaps removed by agents of Apple's Gestapo wearing invisibility cloaks?" Thankfully, there are no reports of injuries at the campus on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's website. Another person familiar with the situation said there are other markings to identify the glass.

Steve Jobs asked British architect Norman Foster and his firm to design Apple's new headquarters in 2006.

An 83-year-old woman sued Apple in 2012 when she broke her nose after walking into an Apple Store's glass door.

Although the vaccine may not stop the flu , it will bolster the body's immune response against the virus , tempering its effects. The levels of flu-like illness are around what the USA saw in 2009, another bad year, said acting CDC Director Anne Schuchat .

Seven people were injured walking into glass walls on the first day. Apple did not provide comment in time for publication.
