But why in the Apple Stores their product are always connected to the charger even it is on 100% Full Charged?
Because, as with all Lithium based batteries, it is perfectly fine to do so. The charge cycle will stop once the battery has reached 100%.

When making millions and millions of battery operated products, there will be a manufacturing defect from time to time, and/or with millions and millions of customers each using the devices in different ways such that the right conditions occur to cause a failure.
Apple battery operated produces (and Samsung, HTC, Dell, HP, ASUS, Lenovo, Motorola, etc...) do not have constant battery failures. But when they do, it catches the attention of the press and gets far more visibility than the millions and millions of devices that do not fail. And Apple products get more press attention than the others because Apple in the headlines sells more news stories.
As for why Apple would keep their showroom devices plugged it.
1st) the devices have battery safety circuitry which prevents over charging (with the exception of defects in the battery itself or the electronics), so there is not reason not to keep them pulgged in 24/7.
2nd) Customers come into Apple stores to play with the products before they buy. A dead product on the showroom floor does not make a sale. I have been in "Big Box Stores" where they have negleted their products, the batteries were dead, or someother aspect of the device was not usable. A lot of these stores are no longer in business. Apple stores are not only still in business, they sell more product per square foot of floor space than any other company. They are doing something right, and part of that is the ability to actually touch and play with "Working" devices on the showroom floor.
If you are afraid of battery operated devices, you may take any personal precautions you feel is effective for your personal use, including avoiding such devices if you prefer.
Finally, you are only talking to Apple customers here. This is not a channel for communicating with Apple. You should use the feedback website for that <http://www.apple.com/feedback>
