Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories
In Vice City Stories there is a computer called the Fruit LC, a parody of the Apple Macintosh, however the name is inspired by the Apple Macintosh LC. According to in-game dialog on Wave 103, the Fruit LC may operate with BASIC programming. Adam First mentions he has finally managed to program a flying triangle that explodes into pixels on the screen. The in-game commercial parodies Apple's famous "1984" commercial. The "BYE" displayed on the Fruit LC's screen is a stab at Apple Macintosh's famous "hello" image on advertisements. The Fruit LC cost at $5,000.00.
Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories
In Liberty City Stories, there is a FruitOS user group called "Fruits" (slang for homosexuals) that has a bitter rivalry with the TOS user group called "Tossers" (slang for someone who masturbates excessively). This is a reference to the real-life Windows/OSX user rivalry.
