    Apple respond:

    A better mea culpla than I expected. Still pretty piss-poor effort all up for the wealthiest company in the world.

    Patch broke my iMac. It's not booting, it's stuck on the black screen with white apple logo and progress bar.

    Edit: clarity.

    Ok. I have been waiting for more than an hour for this thing to boot, I think it is safe to assume it is dead.

    For those that doubt that the patch in question did this, I have not done anything to this computer other than the patch and the computer booted up twice earlier today without issue.
