Insects Love Apples

Whilst browsing the Apple forum, looking to find a solution for why my MagSafe connector wouldn’t actually charge my MacBook Pro anymore (solution? “Buy a new one!” Thanks, Apple chuckleheads.) I came across this remarkable cry for fumigatory technical support and the accompanying video illustrating his problem: insects living inside his monitor.

The puns are just too easy here; the subject too prone and supine. To indulge would be cheap and degrading, like date rape. So insert your own ‘Buggy Monitor’ joke here.

    Dude! That’s like having an Apple full of bugs! Get it?! It’s an Apple computer, and there are bugs in it! Kinda like bugs in a real apple! Far out!

    Not unheard of at all. More than once I have found ant colonies living inside iMacs and PC boxes in our district.

    They love the warmth that comes from the area, as well as the enclosed space. Its a little known fact that the first computer “bug” was infact a real bug, a spider who caused a short circut back in the days of tubes.

    Actually I believe the first computer bug was a moth not a spider. Sorry for being that guy ;)

    “I’m hoping someone has already told you this, but try resetting the PMU. Also, the magnetic pins sometimes don’t pop out enough to make proper contact (I think this is a known fault for Apple at this point, and they have replaced others’ PMU that have been faulty). Have a look at
    around April and later for info and advice.”

    If you’re having problems with your Magsafe adapter, try this article, and if it’s of no use, pop to an Apple store (with the serial number of your computer) and get a (free) replacement.

    Might have been a bit more useful if I actually pasted the link ;)
