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.

The user responsible for sharing this gem of a troll heist with us was quoted in the original photo saying, "I don't know about you guys, but I already found my new role model for 2017." Yo. Right there with you.

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!

For some forsaken reason Apple recently robbed iOS users of the glorious peach emoji's original design, which resembled a butt. Well many angry and confused, and sad tweets later it looks like all is right in the world again, and Apple has reintroduced the 'peach butt emoji'...and naturally, the crowd went wild.

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?
