    How about this one for Macbooks - the Newton Virus is a Mac bug that rearranges the desktop icons using the accelerometers built into recent MacBooks. When the unsuspecting user picks up their laptop, all the icons and menu items fall to the ground as though under the influence of gravity.

    there have been a few people mention this on the smoothwall express forums, but i don't think anyone has implemented it yet.

    I've been meaning to test this out for the past 2/3 years but haven't got much further than installing debian/squid in a VM & forgetting about it

    I can't watch that mac video without bursting into laughter each time it mentioned "flawless piece of technology" Perhaps that's the joke.

    I remember reading about pranks a few months ago on an old thread and I've decided to copy an idea from mrbios here. I'll have a link offering access to youtube or facebook or something going to a hit counter

    Very, very tempted to do this. Plus I think I may have a number of HP Printers suddenly run out of White Toner

    If your intranet can pickup the username of the user accessing it, and you follow a naming scheme with the full name in you could put a link to

    "Naked pictures of $FIRSTNAME $SURNAME"

    Im thinking of doing this, just a simple bit of CSS on the background HTML makes it look nice.

    I did this last year and will probably do the same this year, and yes, all the links work.

    I know of someone who took a call about what turned out to be a key which was so clogged with grot that it couldn't be pressed; they explained that the keyboard had run out of that letter and took it away, then gave it back half-an-hour later having "refilled it". Genius!
