What do the words

What do the words “suspicious package” mean to you? For staffers at Apple’s warehousing, distribution and support call center facility in Elk Grove, California, it was all in the presentation — an iPad that came labelled as something else entirely.

The Elk Grove Patch reports that Elk Grove police were called to Apple’s facility there to look into a suspicious parcel.

“The package had writing on it that led the staff to believe that it might be an explosive device,” said a police spokesman. “Apple security evacuated buildings A and B.”

Later, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department bomb squad x-rayed the package and discovered that it contained an iPad. The item was later opened and, to no one’s surprise, there was indeed an Apple tablet inside.

All’s well that end’s well? I would very much like to know what about the writing on the outside of the box led staffers to believe it contained explosives…

What’s your take?
