It deeply saddens us here at Bro Council to post that Steve Jobs has died. Details are still scarce, but Apple announced via their website that he has passed away at the age of 56. "We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today," read a statement by Apple's board of directors. "Steve's brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve. His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts." Apple's homepage was a full-page image of... Read More
If you see this man when you're out on the town, run. He's on parole and carries a meat cleaver in his pocket. He'll also throw glass bottles at you. Welcome to the life of James Rulli. He allegedly got upset in a bar and started swinging the meat cleaver around his head in a windmill motion and then threw it across the bar. He hasn't stated why he carried the meat cleaver around with him, but he did ask the patrons who tackled him to "please let me get out of here" since he was on parole. The local Police Chief Leo Rudzki Jr. said "Mr. Rulli is no stranger to the department. He has been arrested several times for domestic violence issues,... Read More
Running a contest to fire your employees? Wow...Pat thinks working conditions here are bad, and we even have gold plated toilets! Apparently in Iowa convenience stores, it's cool to run these contests to get your employees fired. The owner of a chain of stores there said he would give a $10 prize to workers who predicted who would be the next one fired. The boss, William Ernst - owner of QC Mart sent a memo to employees with these rules: Employees gave the name of the next cashier they thought would be fired and put their name and date on the slip. The store would have secret shoppers in QC Mart stores look for "cashiers wearing a hat, talking on a... Read More

A man attacked a teen boy after the kid killed him in Call of Duty. Mark Bradford, who is 46 years old, was getting called names by the teen over his headset when he decided to go to his house. He admitted to choking the boy, and apparently he was choking the boy until his mom came in and then he just walked away without saying a word. He'll be back in court on October 24 to be sentenced. But really, who hasn't wanted to choke a mouthy kid in Call of Duty? Source: Man Chokes Kid (Editor's Note - That's a picture of the guy's face, the rest was done in Photoshop. Bart Simpson isn't the kid he choked.)
Well, Bro Council was right when we told you the iPhone 5 would be announced on October 4.

Wow, over a billion other pages about the iPhone 5 and only Bro Council has a real* mockup of the phone: *Image not real
Yes, in general we think that the US>Britain. But as you may have read we like the BBC version of Top Gear better here at Bro Council, mostly because of the host Jeremy Clarkson. Here's a video of Jeremy talking about the Halo 4 Warthog being a part of the video game Forza 4. Yeah, you heard that right...the Warthog is in the game. Unfortunately though, you can't drive it. The Forza team says that it would be too difficult to re-create the suspension and handling on the vehicle to make it realistic enough for the game. Whatever...I just want to see a Warthog in NASCAR now. That would be awesome. I would like to thank Pat for... Read More
