A snowblower has reportedly shattered a glass pane at the Fifth Avenue Apple Store.

In November 2011, the store was updated with 15 large glass panels replacing the 90 panels previously used. The cost of the renovation was reportedly $6.7 million. Some rough math puts the cost of one pane at $446,667.

Passersby say the store has not been closed because of the damage and it's unclear when Apple will be able to replace the glass.

;-) Couldn't pass on this one hey? I wonder why such a high price on glass. Is it due to custom size, type of glass or something else?

Manufactures of the glass who made them.

Was it an Android snowblower?

Android is competing against iOS, not the store.
