    Why would Apple chop off one of it's legs? The removal of Mac from it's lineup would only result in a quick and sad death.

    It's an April Fools joke and not a very good one.

    Not even the least bit funny, australians have a terrible sense of humor.

    I thought jokes had to be plausible to be funny.

    Considering computers are 1/3 if not 1/2 of Apple's revenues (don't have the financial statements in front of me) that'd be kinda dumb.

    PROTIP: don't visit the internet on April 1. No one is funny.

    PROTIP: If you forget the above, don't quote anything you read on the Internet on April 1. It won't end well.

    It was on the Internet so it must be true!

    On second thought, I don't even believe the part about them dropping the word "Computer" from their name. After all, I read it on a rumors site.

    Although they may not be dropping the Mac, it definitely appears Apple Inc. (formerly Apple Computer) has told their computer division (both pro and consumer) to get in the back seat, sit down and keep quiet!

    Yeah, I have to keep reminding myself that Apple started out as a computer company.
