I got this PowerBook 180 booting and it had the single most Boomer AOL parody WAV file on the desktop, oh my GOD

Why do we say 3,000 kilometers instead of 3 megameters?

Serious IT question: are there any Apple computers in American hospitals? I don't mean a doctor's personal laptop. I'm talking about computers used for patient registration, or reading X-rays, or billing.

Feel free to play along on Twitter if you like...
