Apple shuttle buses rerouted following suspected attacks (and Google)

Recommended Posts

The commute for thousands of Apple employees just got a whole lot longer. 


The tech giant runs shuttle buses full of employees from San Francisco to its headquarters in Cupertino every day, and, according to a source inside the company, someone is attacking those buses — and breaking windows. 


On an internal Apple email thread viewed by Mashable, one Apple employee speculated that the culprit may be firing "rubber rounds" at the buses. At least one of the buses only had the outer pane of its double-paned windows broken. 


In response, late Tuesday night, Apple emailed employees to alert them that an untold number of shuttles would be rerouted, adding 30 to 45 minutes to riders' commute. Mashable obtained the email and has verified its authenticity


Here is what the email said:



Subject: Coaches temporarily being rerouted


Due to recent incidents of broken windows along the commute route, specifically on highway 280, we’re re-routing coaches for the time being. This change in routes could mean an additional 30-45 minutes of commute time in each direction for some riders.


As always, the safety of our employees is our first priority. We’re working closely with law enforcement to investigate these incidents and we’ll notify you as soon as the coaches are able to return to the regular route. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Also...Google's buses have been targeted outside of San Francisco. 


What the heck ... and why?

You realize this is going to devolve quickly into a gun control thread?


Anyways, stupid idiots.  But they should deal with these attackers quickly before this becomes more serious.

Looks like someone really isn't happy about the processor throttling on iPhones issue ...
