Remember last year, when the great cellphone war went up in smoke as Samsung phones started blowing up all the time. Well, now, I guess you're dumbass Android-using friend can be all shitty about their phone again because this iPhone blew up too.

Apparently, Brianna bought the phone, and while she suspected it didn't look right, she took it home anyway, assuming that because it wasn't a Samsung phone, there's no chance that it could blow up. However, she was wrong. Dead wrong. Her boyfriend caught the phone smoking and squealing the very next monring, so he dumped it in the bathroom, the only falme retartant room in the house, for safekeeping. Yup, looks like you're going to have another one of those conversations about which phone is better, and you won't be able to get out of it by saying iPhones don't blow up. Get ready to hear about how Galaxy phones are endlessly customizable. However, when you ask what is customizable about it, they tell you something that you would never want to do to your phone.

But we live in a post-iPhone blow up reality, where we have to put up with convsations like that, and there's very little we can do about it. Even the Genius bar can't save you because this phone blew up.

The iPhone’s multi-touch display is one of the phone’s greatest innovations. But wouldn’t you know it, Steve Jobs and the team almost went in a different, stupider direction.

The iPhone almost had a click wheel like the iPod. But it wasn't a physical click wheel, it was a digital one. The video above from Apple leaker Sonny Dickson shows the click wheel from “Acorn OS,” which Mashable describes as, “an iPod-based interface for the iPhone that Apple was working on before deciding to go with the now-ubiquitous icon-based interface.”

Apparently, Apple had two teams working on the iPhone’s operating system, one that was led by Tony Fadell, the “father of the iPod,” and other by Scott Forstall, who was the Vice President of iOS software before leaving because everyone hated Maps. Fadell was working on this click wheel version based on the success of the iPod.

Obviously, “turning it into to a rotary phones from the 60s,” as Fadell puts it, wasn’t the way to go.

Check out the video and imagine a reality where you absolutely hate your iPhone.

Apple was pretty brave this year.

After removing every port they possibly could so that they could create both more dongles and fewer wires, they released a new MacBook Pro with a Touch Bar and totally affordable price tag.

But what about us poor schmoes that can’t afford a $2,300 laptop? There’s a YouTube video for that.

In just 26 seconds this video will show you how to turn your old, broken, awful, worthless, bordering on illegal MacBook into a brand-new, state-of-the-art Touch Bar-ready MacBook.

Tools you’ll need:

  • MacBook Pro
  • Masking Tape
  • Electrical Tape

Get to work!

Here's his reasoning for the madness, translated via Mashable

“Apple is a company that ‘violated’ European consumers’ rights. They refused to reimburse me, I told them: ‘Give me my money back’. They said no. So you know what’s happening? This is happening!” – before wrecking another iPhone.



Although, he doesn't get all that far before being apprehended; but still how did he even get anywhere in the first place?
