At cabedge, we've got some incredibly funny, creative and brilliant people. Yesterday, one of them (coolio) posted this custom tag under his chat name: "Apple just pwned you"
I kept looking at it yesterday... wondering what it meant. It just kept glaring at me from the IM window... taunting me.
Then when I saw it again this morning, I had an "AAAA-HAH" moment. I thought I'd figured it out for sure. So, I boldly began a chat with coolio... thinking I was pretty smart. Well... for the record, I'm NOT. I was CLUELESS.
Here is the chat for your reading enjoyment...
BB: I couldn't figure pwned out yesterday...
BB: it just hit me.
coolio: people may not know it yet but they will
BB: we'll evangelize it...
BB: soon everyone will be using it...
BB: phoned will become obsolete.
coolio: it is the killer trojan horse
BB: i am such a loser.
coolio: smiley face
BB: I think I could make a comedy schtick out of the whole pwned / phoned thing...
OK... so now you know what pwned means, too. ... and if you don't yet, go click that link up there.

No thanks necessary.
I'm here for you, friends.
