    worse than...

    It was bad... I was appaulled when I saw the sexy white book blow, (although it was kind'a cool seeing that it held a lot of its dignity).
    If only the could have blown up the scooter instead...

    Hah! I saw that. It sucks it had to be the ibook. That was the best prize. It should've been the ghetto Segway that shuld've died.

    ...hmmm, maybe in the next revision of the iBook, they'd use materials that are used in bomb-proof glass.

    apple DOES use the materials used in bomb proof glass. iBooks are lexan. Bomb-proof glass is lexan. Just different strenghts of the same material.

    The prizes were peas, a rip-off Segway, an iBook, a digital camera and printer, and a Vespa scooter I think. Does Apple cover having your computer blown up :D

    I saw that (the gameshow is called Distraction, I love it!) Better their iBook than my iBook I say. Did you see how the keyboard just went flying when it blew up? I thought that was pretty neat.

    It looked like a 12" anyway. Now if it were a Powerbook or a G5, I would have cried.

    Another poor iBook has bitten the dust.

    I just witnessed the anihilation (sp?) of another defenseless iBook. Also a Vespa and an assortment of Rice-A-Roni, but the iBook was hard to watch.

    They blew up a laptop at the airport I work at (before I worked there). Someone left it unattended for a while, and since bombs can be built into laptops, someone aparently made the decision to have it destroyed --to be on the safe side. I never heard if it was an apple or not though (hope not). I kind of feel bad for the passenger, but then again, I have to listen to a voice constantly droning all day long about not leaving bags unattended, so it's not like they weren't warned.

    How about a PC? Have they tried to blow one up yet? Believe it's very common compare to blowing up macs. People are just so fustrated w/ them.
