Broken iPhones Appear on Flickr


This is poetry. Photos are showing up on Flickr of destroyed, broken-beyond-repair iPhones and I couldn’t be happier. It goes beyond mere schadenfreude, mind you. All that hard work waiting in a line, talking to the mainstream media as if there weren’t more pressing matters that needed to be discussed, all just to post a photo showing a cracked screen. Poetry.

Apple replaced this particular iPhone free of charge, which has been its modus operandi for as long as I can remember. Too bad it takes so much effort to break an iPhone. I was looking forward to message board post after message board post assailing Apple for its shoddy craftsmanship.
