iPhone users: If you can’t join ’em, beat em

It looks like Apple may finally be catching a break on all that bad publicity surrounding the rash of “iPod muggings” in recent years. Unfortunately, the break may come at the expense of news of some new iPhone muggings.

According to MacBlogz, Ohio police are looking for the “person” (and I use the term loosely) who is shown in the below video brutally attacking a fellow bus passenger in an attempt to steal his iPhone. Miraculously, the victim was somehow able to hold onto his iPhone despite what appears to be a pretty thorough beating.

Now, as an iPhone owner, I can see where someone who didn’t have one might want one, but believe me folks, they aren’t THAT great. I mean, it’s not like the guy had the 3G model. Now THAT’S a piece of technology worth assaulting over!

Thanks to faithful Macenstein reader Frank T for the tip!

    Hey everyone, I’m the guy who assaulted the dude in the video. What everyone has to understand is that he had the Vista Perfection theme installed on his iPhone. I wasn’t trying to steal it. He got what he had coming to him.
