Microwaved iPhone

Artist Kenny Irwin is selling a microwaved gold iPhone 6 on eBay for $6,660. Yes, he purposefully microwaved it. He's also signed and dated his creation. Irwin warns that, "Winner bidder will receive two NO A LONGER WORKING iPHONE because IT HAS BEEN MICROWAVED."

I love the "Wave" advertisement which tells people they can recharge their iPhone by nuking it. It's like someone finally came up with a stupidity tax! (I think it originated on 4Chan.)

So someone found a use for an iPhone?

LOL ... btw I love the articles about IOS 8 problems.


P.S. I put an Apple sticker on the back of my Android Phone just to mess with people. It's kinda like putting a token or penny in a vending machine change slot.

While I admire Apple for its computing equipment and operating systems (they feel more like an integrated whole rather than pieced together like PC equipment), I've never bought any new items from the company. Everything always seemed to be overpriced. I do like this guy's pricing at $6660.00. That harkens back to the first Apple computer and its reported selling price of $666.00.

And that insistence on calling everything an "iWhatever". That really irritates me.

That guy is a total moron. I hope he gets in trouble for selling it because it has to be toxic from all the crap in it that was cooked. I hate people like that.
