Oxnard, CA. Pear, LLC is the not-so-famous manufacturer of the Pear Laptop Computer. You know the company. You just didn't know that you knew the company. Pear is that "alternative" laptop brand you see popping up in so many sitcoms across semi-popular cable channels. Well, as it turns out, they were bought by another company named Orange, LLC. So, now the pear shape, which used to be an apple shape, will be replaced with an orange circle shape. We apologize. It's a slow day for made-up sarcastic news.
