Call off the panic attack, Chuckles. "Falling into disappear" is, I'll happily wager, the result of a mistyping of "disrepair" that was changed to "disappear" by automated spelling correction, followed by a failure to catch the error in proofreading. That's much more plausible than some tragic chain of miseducated Neanderthals passing along the (highly) unlikely expression "falling into disappear". Unless you think proofreading errors don't happen, in which case...
Er, except for the retail returns that DO HAPPEN. (Hmm, a side thought: are the Apple grab bags, or grab bags in general, sold with a "no returns" policy? Any buyers able to report on that?) Anyway, on the subject of "lucky bags", I'm surprised every year when I see people online writing from the US, apparently excited over this strange new concept. It's a grab bag.

Why the xenophobic characterization of high school girls?
"... Jobs and Ive share credit for inventing over 200 patents…" You don't invent patents. You patent inventions. Back to the story...
"Come on, guys, would one of you at least try to compete with Apple? We'll, like, totally pay you."
A bit off topic, but: Where's the pun?
Let's see: I'll cannibalize this steak. Then I'll cannibalize a banana. Then watch some TV, but not too much, because that's been cannibalizing my reading time. No good. The article's use of the word is sloppy. iPads eat into PC sales; they don't "cannibalize" PC sales. But that's all a tangent. Back to the story –
Let's step away from the needless political comments, and discuss something more important: Was awesome wire action part of the "scuffle"? "Everybody was kung fu fighting..."
