ALWAYS backup a your mac before you leave the country your macbook could be killed!
Young American woman travels over to Jerusalem to meet some friends, see the sights, live the life. Overzealous border security officers ask her a bunch of questions, take issue with her answers, and a few well-placed bullets later she is allowed entry into the country with a somewhat altered MacBook in tow. So what can we all learn from this incident? Firstly, back up all the data you consider important; B, Israeli policemen don't mess about; and 3, distressed laptops look gorgeous no matter how they got there -- just look at the way the glass trackpad has wrinkled up from the force of the bullet penetrating near it, it's a borderline work of art. The young lady in question has been promised compensation, but lest you think this is a one one-off you can see pictures of an equally dead Dell at the Flickr link below. We've got a couple more close-ups of the ravaged MacBook after the break.
P.S. - As always, we encourage a discussion. A sensitive, intellectual, worldly discussion. If you can't infer what it is we're asking of our dear readers tempted to intone on this matter, then please skip commenting on this thread, mkay?
Check out the attached pictures wonder if it on tape?
I bet the MacBook Pro would have handled it better.
Read the comments, seems to have been an unattended bag. Still quite an over reaction, especially if someone (as she did) claimed the bag.
Intelligent border guard? Suspicious package, tell you what I'll shoot it just in case it's a bomb.
you think apple would cover it?
"Killing" an inanimate object is just wrong (on many levels).
*cue that "Die Mother(INSERTSWEARHERE)er" song*
Apologies if this has been posted, I have searched.
Just a MB
No, but I do think they would cover your sarcasm-o-meter.
So, does this qualify for an out of warranty replacement?
I always thought the case felt flimsy.
lol... I like the warning that was announced overhead as well..
now we know to hold our aluminum macbooks out in front of us if we are getting shot at.......
Is that a picture/sticker of Elektra in the bottom right hand corner? If so then I am very disappointed as she should be able to easily deflect the bullets with her ninja skills.
There goes my plan to use my MB as a bulletproof sheild...
Sorry if this has already been posted
Its cos Israel hates Syria. Steve Jobs has Syrian blood.
I Don't Think Applecare Will Cover This
What an idiot. On 2 points:
1. No Time Machine backup back home?
2. Giving attitude to Israeli border guards - BIG MISTAKE!!!!
Shocked it took this long, considering how long that's been floating on the interwebs.
Well, somebody had to post it.
