Apple and Google charter buses vandalized on highway

Apple shuttle buses rerouted following suspected attacks

Buses for Apple employees 'attacked' with pellet guns, company suspects

Apple is now reportedly rerouting its employee buses as a result of the incident, a move that will add a significant amount of time to workers' commutes.

Photos sent by an anonymous Apple employee to the website Mashable showed the broken windows on Apple employee shuttle buses. The attackers use pellet guns or rocks.

A Google bus was also attacked on the same road on Tuesday, SFGate reported.

Apple's decision to build a data center in Reno in 2012 kickstarted a wave of big-name tech projects coming to the Reno area, as well as a new approach to economic development.

Orthodox Christians celebrate Holy Epiphany
In Orthodox tradition, believers immerse themselves in rivers and lakes to commemorate the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan. From the Gospel we know that John the Baptist, calling people to repentance, baptized people in the waters of the Jordan.

The shuttles do not have identifiable markings on them such as logos to indicate which company charters them but they are still recognizable by their colors.

"[We're] taking the precaution of re-routing shuttles as we hear of any incidents", Google wrote an in an internal email, according to Mashable. The memo went on to note that bus routes will be temporarily diverted away from I-280, the highway on which the incidents occurred.

At least four of the vandalized shuttle buses were chartered by Apple, whose corporate headquarters are located off I-280 in Cupertino city in California's Silicon Valley. The route change "could mean an additional 30 to 40 minutes of commute time in each direction for some riders", the email explained.

As always, the safety of our employees is our first priority. Apple later told Mashable that it is working with police to investigate the incidents. Thank you for your patience and understanding. It's unclear if the attack, which broke a window on the bus, was carried out by the same perpetrator.

CTE Triggered By Hits To Head, Not Just Concussions
Ron Dowd says the new findings that hard hits can cause brain damage in several sports at a young age - makes sense. Goldstein is an associate professor in the university's School of Medicine and College of Engineering.

At least one Google bus has also been vandalized. Some believe these buses have become a constant reminder of the gentrification in and around Silicon Valley, however, and they have been the focus of protests in the past.

Apple and Google might be rivals on the tech scene but seem to have a common enemy, one that seems keen to take things to a more physical level.

Interestingly, the buses involved in this latest incident don't include branding indicating they come from a major tech corporation.
