Bomb threat forces Apple campus evacuation
Disgruntled fanboi phone fun?
A bomb threat cleared an Apple facility outside Sacramento, California on Monday morning, but a subsequent search turned up no iXplosives.
According to a video report from Sacramento television station KCRA, "several hundred employees" were evacuated from three buildings at Apple's Laguna Blvd. campus in Elk Grove, a suburb of California's capital city.
Sacramento's KTLX TV subsequently reported that an all-clear status was announced by area police five hours after the threat, which had been phoned in at approximately 8am Monday, local time.
The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department used a quartet of bomb-sniffing dogs to search the facility, which was opened in 1992 as a manufacturing center, and became the home of the company-saving iMac when that machine debuted in 1997.
