It's humor piece to mock supporters of SOPA/PIPA.

To protest against SOPA/PIPA, Apple is announcing two models of the 
iPhone and the iPad with jet black back and STOP SOPA/PIPA engraved on 
it. The devices are available immediately and the $100 extra ($100 + the 
original price) that you will pay for each device will be donated to 
Apple's internal law enforcement department which fights the patent and 
copyright cases.

The technical team of Microsoft came up with a solution. "We did not 
have to do much and it will have deeper impact than Wikileak's blackout. 
According to our funded survey 10 people visit Wikipedia every 30 
seconds compare that with Windows BSoD (Blue Screen of Death). There are 
30 BSoDs every 10 seconds, around the globle. This is a massive power 
and we can exploit it."
