Re: "Don't bend your iPhone"
@jgherbert.  lol.  My sympathies.  Joking.  I love the iThings - I didn't buy the 6 because I had just recently gotten the 5 after I shattered my 4 to pieces - by accident not on purpose!

I'm super-bummed however about the issue with iOS8 because I was just about to take the plunge.  I saw they have finally provided the functionality to set up out of office messages from Exchange accounts and was excited to try it before it was pulled :(

Re: "Don't bend your iPhone"
*lol* Well, my bendable iPhone 6Plus arrives today apparently, so that advice is a bit late for me!

"Don't bend your iPhone"
I posted this elsewhere but it seems particularly pertinent given the first "do not do this" picture... ;-)



 

(It's a movie reference...)

Glass
"It's a testament to the flexibility and strength of the glass protecting the screen that it hasn't shattered."

I agree. Mind you every time I see one of those bent screens I keep thinking about the enormous stress the glass must be under, and wondering if at some point you'll tap that screen and it will just 'pop', for want of a better word!

Re: After the iWave prank....
@GAProgrammer> Yes, the microwave prank was kind of funny. For those that didn't catch it, the story doing the rounds (allegedly sourced from 4chan) was a stylish advery claiming that with iOS 8 Apple had introduced wireless charging; you just put it in the microwave and 'charge' it on full power for about 10 seconds (or more, depending on the source of the claim). And, supposedly, some dummies actually tried it.

We saw similar with iOS7 as I recall, with a fake ad that explained that iOS7 made your phone waterproof, with the inevitable screams of displeasure when some people discovered that this was a prank. ;-)

Love the drop test and blender videos. Hope the clicks are worth it.
When I saw that news footage of the guy bending the iPhone, I'm thought, "yeah, what would you expect?" I'm glad @phonescooper has his tounge firmly in cheek here, but those drop-test and blender videos are painful to watch. I just couldn't bring myself to destroy perfectly good phones in the interest of science (and YouTube clicks). The drop test says it all, however. iPhones and iPods are notoriously prone to breakage and the 6 series doesn't seem to do anything to address that vulnerability.

Next iPhone 6 commercial
Should feature the song Bent by Matchbox 20, with its fitting chorus:

Can you help me I'm bent
I'm so scared that I'll never
Get put back together
Keep breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent

Re: After the iWave prank....
But does it blend? That's what I want to know.
