Apple Sabotaged! Offline Hack!

A quote from Steve Jobs

Check out this story about an Apple store in Maryland where people have been buying iPods only to find angry Unabomber style notes inside them telling them they should free their minds and read a book. Ha! As if. Of course nobody actually took this crazy advice, but nonetheless we feel compelled to track down the source of this tampering. Because as Ron Johnson says, if we don’t stop it here, what’s next? Anthrax pellets? Notes telling people to spend their money feeding the homeless instead of buying ridiculously overpriced consumer electronics? Damn, yo.

The security vulnerability seems to have been traced back to child laborers in China.  As the phones were sold at WalMart and not Apple Retail Stores.  The Apple staffers have been encouraged to apply for their old jobs after the 6 month cooling off period ends.
