Apple Designs World's Thinnest Cruise Missile
On the heels of its successful, ultra-thin MacBook Air, the world’s thinnest laptop, Apple this week rolled out its first entry into defense contracting, a tactical cruise-missile that is only 6-inches thick.
The iMissile will not only be able to deliver two miniaturized warheads over a range of 800 nautical miles at a speed of 600 mph, but will also contain an 800 gigabyte hard drive capable of holding 9 million songs or 3,000 movies.
Apple CEO Steve Jobs admitted the Pentagon was not sold on the need for an ultrathin cruise missile, but said he felt confident officials would see it as a vital tool in the war on terror
“The new iMissile allows for greater durability and portability,” said Jobs. “And it looks really cool. Every one of our allies will want to be the first in NATO to have one.”
