    For those with an aversion to high priced technology, a visit to the Apple store always stinks. But in some instances, regardless of the price tags on display, a visit to the Apple store still stinks.

    As it turns out, body odor has become a real issue for Apple. And the company has begun to sweat the issue - pun fully intended.

    "You would think if the presence of what even Santa Monica Apple Store employees I spoke with define as B.O. has been a recurring problem elsewhere, management in charge of retail operations would have taken steps to safeguard future stores, particularly the brand's most important ones," TheStreet reports. "If you can hardly smell cigarette smoke in the best Vegas casinos, you shouldn't be able to whiff stale sweat inside one of the world's premier retail outlets."

    Across the U.S. there have been ample reports in recent years - not just weeks or months, but years - that stenches are surprisingly common at these extremely lucrative retail stores. The culprit? We are told that inadequate ventilation and high walls in small areas with lots of sweaty people milling around.

    So what is Apple doing about it? For now, that much isn't clear. But Apple - and its retail team - are certainly aware of the problem. And they are likely sniffing around for a solution as we speak.

    Create an iShower at stores for customers to wash up in prior to entry. Maybe there should be an app to verify you showered today. Seriously though, who are these smelly people in these stores?

    You've managed to make this article even worse than the original. From the change in title to the quotes picking, this is a disgrace to modmyi.

    That by far is one of the most retarded statements I have ever heard. People who slam MMO players are typically sports fanatics. Ill never understand why people get so obsessed about people who toss, throw, kick, etc a ball around and make millions doing so. Everyone has something they are into! Doesnt make yours, mine, theirs worse than anyone elses

    Whether you're serious or not, I've witnessed preschoolers demonstrate a greater level of maturity. Also, I rarely see nerds working at Apple stores, the majority of "nerds" dislike Apple - try hipsters instead.
