    It would seem that one of the buildings at the Apple campus in Cupertino, California caught on fire last night, thankfully no one was hurt. Apple is being tight lipped about the fire but rumor has it they are questioning the “I’m a PC” guy.

    Probably because I sent my MBP in for repair. It often hits 97c during load.

    When interviewed, the fire cheif said, "Apple's fire system had a great user interface. Unfortnately, it wasn't too effective at performing tasks outside of a controlled environment."

    Or maybe the fire system just wasn't compatible with the fire?

    Yeah but they claimed that it "JUST WORKS" with everything and everyone who wishes to spend more than double the price of a more-than-capable and diversified and upgradeable product:):):)

    When pressed, Steve Jobs responded. "We didn't create the fire so we're not responsible for its compatiblity." Mr. Jobs later stormed off saying, "If you wanted compatibility with a cheap fire, maybe you should have installed Windows!"

    Probably the new iBrand in alpha stage. Costs $1200 and permanently brands the user with the apple logo. Pre-orders are through the roof!

    For an extra $500, they'll tattoo the logo right on your forehead.

    +1 for that one, maybe Bil Gates stopped by to do the whole shit in the bag prank and the fire got out of control.

    You can't edit anything in the Front Page News section. It's supposed to make people think about their shenannigans before posting them. I guess it sucks if you can't spell.

    It's probably a test of new technology like Kill Switch but can combust users devices at King Jobs demands.

    Meh it was only one of the thousands of buildings they have all over the same area, I'm surprised the over use of thermal paste didn't stop the fire....mmmmmmmmm roasted apples, just need some caramel sauce.

    I read this was the R&D building. I bet the firefighters all had to sign a NDA.
