An Apple Store in Sydney became the center of news when a shopper snapped a picture of a middle-aged man he caught casually browsing an X-rated website on a public computer at the Apple Store. The shopper who snapped the culprit uploaded the image to Reddit on Monday. He titled the image “Spotted this guy in the Sydney Apple Store… NSFW [not safe for work]”

Man caught watching porn

The image clicked by the shopper shows a middle-aged man with glasses hunched over a laptop, resting his hand on his cheek as he browses casually through porn as if he is not sitting in an Apple Store and no one is watching him, according to the Daily Mail. The middle-aged man appears to be casually browsing the Casual Encounters section of Craigslist, which is a classified advertisements website, while inside the busy Apple Store on George Street in the middle of the city.

The man is sitting directly across another man on a laptop, and an image of a man and woman performing sexually explicit acts is open on the screen. Shoppers are just walking past him, and his expression does not even change. It appears the public porn browser does not value his privacy very much.

A user commented on the picture, “Nothing like browsing the casual encounters section of CL on a public computer.” Another user commented, “Don’t you just love the classic, nonchalant ‘oh, I’m just reading the news’ expression on the guys [sic] face?”

Another Reddit user commented that he hopes the person who snapped the picture or someone else who noticed the guy called him out for being a freak. The user adds that he can understand (if the man was watching porn) in a library, way back in a corner “but out in the open like that?”

Apple Store selling a smart rope

Meanwhile, Apple Stores are now selling the Tangram smart rope. The smart rope is a jump rope with embedded LEDs that create the appearance of a digital display in mid-air, displaying the user’s jump count. The smart rope counts your jumps and tracks the calories burned, and you can even compare your jump stats with your friend with the help of the leaderboard system.

On Amazon, the top-selling jumping rope costs $10, whereas the price of the Tangram Smart Rope is $90. The big question is: is it worth paying 800% premium on the Tangram rope, no matter how smart it is?
