Pain like you’ve never felt

Since every current set or Apple earbuds I own now only works in one ear, I went rummaging through my collection of ancient Apple artifacts, and just under the tangerine clamshell iBook I found these, an extremely old pair of iPod ear buds. I don’t know what model iPod these came with, but it must have been from a time before human ear canals evolved into the shape we are... Read More

iPad 2 destroyed in slow motion (because everything looks better in slow motion)

Man, try to name ONE THING that doesn’t look cooler in super slow motion. Can’t do it? Didn’t think so. Even this horrifying video of an iPad 2 meeting its maker (figuratively speaking, of course.

Detective Munch denies choking Apple Store employee

Richard Belzer‘s “Detective Munch” character holds the distinction of being the only fictional character (played by a single actor) to appear on eight different television shows, and it looks like that number could go up to 9, assuming you count Apple Store security footage.

How else can you explain Israeli airport security firing three shots into the MacBook of Lily Sussman, which just happened to be sporting an Elektra Stamp? (2005’s Elektra of course being the 3rd worst Marvel comic movie of all time, and starring Jennifer Garner in the title role). Above: Elektra proved as hard to kill as the Elektra movie was to watch.

iPhone + 100 mph + pavement = ?

Apple’s iPhone “Tech Specs” page posts tons of useful information about the iPhone designed to keep users from inadvertently damaging their devices – such as optimal operating temperatures, optimal altitude, humidity, etc. But two glaring omissions on the page are the “optimal velocity” and “optimal amount of tonnage” the iPhone can handle.... Read More
