PowerBook takes a “Major League” hit

I’m the furthest thing you’ll find from a baseball fan, so the idea of being a photographer sent to cover all the “action” of a Pittsburgh Pirates game is scary enough, but check out the carnage that befalls this poor man’s PowerBook during an 8th inning foul ball. (Be sure to check out the chick with the iPhone at the end – priceless). More pics after the jump. It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…! Read More  Read More

Holy appendix, Batman!

Faithful Macenstein reader Batman writes: “Hey! It is now June 18 and you still have stuff at the top of your site from the 14. WTF? Are you dead or what? Do something!!!!!” Yes, as many of you who follow my Twitter feed know, I had to have my appendix taken out, so it was NOT, I repeat, NOT the 2 three scoop sundaes I got at Friendly’s that were ripping my stomach apart earlier this week, and no, I did not get a virus (we all know people who use Macs do not... Read More
