A building at the heart of Apple's Cupertino campus was evacuated on Wednesday after an employee discovered a mysterious envelope of white powder. As reported by The San Jose Mercury News, fire crews visited Apple's 4 Infinite Loop at 3:30pm, donning hazardous material gear before entering the building. Sargent Don Morrisey of …
Not mentioned in the artical but the return address on the enveloppe was:
1 Microsoft Way
Given that Macs are known to crack up, cach fire and spew benzine and other hazardous chemicals out of the air vents, perhaps this was the envelope that Steve Christ pulled the Mac Air out of that time, and it simply shed some asbestos or something whilst inside?
If this was a kebab house it would be closed down by the environmental health, so why isn't this happening to Apple?
Vitamin C powder
Betcha, it will be someone adding vitamin C to their canteen fruit smoothy because it's not 'healthy' enough. Or some other ground up vitamin supplement... health nuts.
I find it a bit odd that Apple's latest TV commercial is called "biohazard suit." Very coincidental.
does this "testing" require the use of a note and a quick snort?
Apple also noticed a drop in productivity for that day......
An envelope of white powder found in the cafeteria...
I'd say its sugar :P
Threatening pink and yellow envelopes
Hundreds of pounds of mysterious white powders enter US facilities daily in harmless-looking, pastel-coloured envelopes. Millions of workers put this unverified powdery substance into their tea and coffee. What is it? Who will be next? Stay tuned...

Ever thought of using your time productively?
Brings back memories
When I worked in a financial services company here in Edinburgh, a member of the support team told me a of an incident involving a sticking keyboard belonging to one of the Traders.
The keyboard was subsequently found to have quantities of "a soluble white powder" gumming up the keys. Suspicions abounded, the traders were known to live on caffeine, and so, sure as 2+2=5 theories about someone moving up to something stronger were bandied about.
The tea lady solved the mystery - the trader concerned was indeed addicted, but not to coke or whizz, instead to sugared doughnuts, and refused to use a plate.

Oh dear; it seems the Phreakster's back incognito and spewing bile, inaccuracies and general crud into the ether.
No wonder they were confused...
....the normal place for white power would be in the toilets, just next to the marketing dept.
White powder in a canteen.
Might it be salt, sugar, bicarb, sweetener, etc etc....
my money is on...
Stevia. Natual sweetner. And no, I wasn't anywhere near Cupertino on the day in question.
