What a time to be alive: impressively helpful woman finds a lost and homeless iPhone in a cab, proceeds to glean all private deals - whereabouts (address/where car is parked) - from an all too voluntary snitch of a Siri. For real though. Shoutout to Siri for not failing to dispel some intimate details to a total stranger. Imagine if this little live-tweeted tale took a turn down horror movie lane...just saying, suggesting really, that there are certain people out there that you do not want knowing where you live.

When you say it's indestructible, it better be indestructible. 

Meet the Titan cable, an iPhone cable that can't be destroyed because it has a very thick, metal casing. We'll see about that. 

The fine folk over at The Verge took the Titan cable's can't be destroyed claims a little too seriously. While Titan probably meant, like, the end of the cable won't fray or wear out, the Verge decided to see how it held up to a samurai sword. 

The results, as you probably guessed, don't favor the cable.

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.

It’s the 10th anniversary of the device you might be reading this post from, the iPhone.

It’s been quite a ride from the phone, iPod, camera mashup to that thing you frequently yell at for acting “weird.” What a long, strange trip it’s been…

Take a step back into the past and watch Steve Jobs introduce this bad boy to the world and change it forever.

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.

As Steve Jobs would say, "It just works."

The good thing about iPhones is that there is an infinite amount of ways to destroy them. Whether you’re interested in a crushing, a frying, or an old fashioned dunking in the toilet, there's a iPhone death for you. Unlike the actual phone, the destruction of an iPhone is entirely customizable.

However, few iPhone deaths are as cool as the one The Backyard Scientists pulled off in this video. Taking a page from Terminator 2: Judgement Day’s saddest scene, they dipped their iPhone in Lava to similar results.

This isn’t as sad as that moment, but it’s still really cool. Once it’s submerged, the iPhone comes completely apart. But the real money is when they pour the contents into a cast-iron pan, which looks straight-up like T-1000. You’ve got to check this out.

apple iphone burns australian woman beats samsung galaxy note 7

In the ongoing war between Apple and Samsung, the battle has turned not towards more practical and useful products and services, but rather which company can impart the most damage on its users.

As has been reported, and even mocked by the president and Grand Theft Auto, Samsung has been the champion of flamable phones for the past few months. Samsung has been an innovator in how to leave their users with burns thanks to the explosive Galaxy Note 7 smartphone.

That was until the Silicon Valley stalwart Apple has had their say.

After falling asleep watching a movie on her iPhone 7, a pregnant Australian woman awoke to several “superficial” burns on her arm, leaving “an imprint of the phone and charger etched into her skin,” according to Metro.

While she’s probably relieved that the phone didn’t blowup, Melanie Tan Pelaez did claim to also “experience sudden pain, pins and needles, numbness and shortness of breath.” Genius Bar can’t fix that.

The burns, Pelaez was told, wouldn’t be covered under the warranty, as Apple “allegedly denied that the phone was to blame ‘as it didn’t have a distinct smell’ and told her the phone usually shuts down if overheating occurs.” The phone has since been sent to California for testing.

Hey, if it doesn’t smell like an Apple burn, it’s not an Apple burn. Now, let’s see Samsung build an explosion with a signature smell. Google Pixel, you smell what we're cooking?
