Amanda Flowers always liked her Wii Fit but now she can't get enough of it. Amanda claims a fall from her balance board damaged a nerve and has left her suffering from persistent sexual arousal syndrome. From the article: "The catering worker said: 'It began as a twinge down below before surging through my body. Sometimes it built up into a trembling orgasm.'

So just in case you could not figure out the proper subject-verb agreement, it is "Apple is..." in your last sentence.

It makes me wonder if their new network management tool had failed at some point because my local Comcast number was completely overloaded (getting "the call could not be completed as dialed" telco messages). Obviously something had broke, and even my father called me before I woke up on Saturday about the problem.
