A Brooklyn bystander claims they witnessed an "angry spouse" in Bushwick throw an iMac out of a window, killing a pigeon in the process.
The frankly ridiculous story was reported by Twitter's Human Mel Friday who stated:
Walking in bushwick and someone's angry spouse just threw this mac out the window, killing a pigeon on the way down
The picture certainly shows one of Apple's larger 27-inch iMacs from back in the day missing its distinctive black bezels and sitting atop a deceased pigeon on the side of the road. The picture also shows an older flat-screen TV, however, it is unclear if this piece of tech was also defenestrated during the dispute, or whether it has been deliberately placed there for disposal.
Apple's iMac has been a stalwart of the company's desktop lineup for many years, receiving a design overhaul that shifted it away from the chunky form factor to a slimmed-down version. Last year, the company launched its first-ever Apple silicon iMac to great acclaim featuring not only Apple silicon but also a slew of awesome colors and a distinctive new thin design.
Reports indicate the company is also working on a larger form factor iMac that may also feature mini-LED technology, as debuted in the M1 iPad Pro (2021) last year. Apple is reportedly shaping up to include its M1 Pro and M1 Max chips in the lineup, representing a big power upgrade over the M1 version.
Bottom line: If you have the money to spring for the higher-end model, the iMac (2021) will likely surprise you. It's got enough power to accomplish all the basic tasks you could ask of a family computer and some leftover if you want to do a little more. Wrap that all up in a beautiful colored package and the iMac is one hell of a machine.
