I guess there's a lesson to be learned here.

Don't fuck around in Beijing with a tech hungry crowd.

Apple fans waiting overnight in the freezing cold turned angry and at least one pelted the store fa├žade with eggs when it failed to open Friday morning as expected. The store never opened, and by midmorning authorities wielding megaphones roped off the store and told the crowd of hundreds to disperse to break up the tense scene.
And yes.

Apple has left the building.
