Quick Notes: Scoble Bends MacBook Air

This post is part of Push the Third Button Twice, a ~2 month adventure where I would write parody articles based on the news as it happened — in 15 minutes or less. The posts are credited to my a fictional "staff", but they're actually all me. I apologize in advance.

Prolific blogging sensation Robert Scoble was ejected from MacWorld today after a photo op turned ugly.  Witnesses said Scoble was trying to recreate a pose he made famous with a new iPhone last summer, this time with a MacBook Air at the Apple booth, but the notebook was so thin it bent under the pressure of his sweaty digits.

“The whole bottom part of the machine was warped at a 45-degree angle,” said a source who was laughing too hard to give his name, “And in a second, these two guys in black suits are dragging Scoble away by the nostrils like he weighs absolutely nothing.  He kept crying that he’s Steve’s best friend, no really, he’s Steve’s best friend.  It was hilarious.”

An Apple spokesman  declined comment on the incident, saying only that “the revolutionary MacBook Air is so thin it can fit inside an envelope, just like our critics.  Capice?”
