April Fools Day Apologies

April Fools Day Apologies -- My apologies to everyone we suckered with the fake update posted on Sunday to our Web site about how rolling blackouts in California and the associated cut-overs from the power grid to generators at Apple's data centers were causing Mac OS X to kernel panic if it accessed a mounted iDisk in a specific fashion. I particularly enjoyed the subsequent and rather technical discussion of the "problem" on TidBITS Talk. That said, my experience causing Mac OS X to kernel panic while using iDisk and relaunching the Finder (to try to get out of an accidental mounting of the iTunes disk image from my iDisk) was real. And on a more serious note, the fact that such a fabricated report was so believable shows just how large of an unknown space we're entering with Mac OS X. [ACE]
