Jenny Lewis (not the Jenny Lewis), a staff member at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary in the U.K., accidentally dropped her iPhone into a tank of water occupied by Starsky, one of the sanctuary's resident otters. Rather than let it sink to the bottom or crack it open on his belly, Starsky retrieved the phone and politely…
A man in England waited in line for an iPhone 6 for two whole days in a desperate attempt to win back his wife, who left him recently after 20 years of marriage. Something tells me if 20 years of marriage can't keep a couple together, a shiny new toy probably won't either.
At long last, technology has finally figured out how to combine two of the most important activities on Earth—taking pictures of ourselves and brushing our hair.

What you have here is visual proof of the iPhone's refusal, against all reason, to suggest that you're typing the word "vagina." V-A-G-I-N... Where else might a user be going with these letters if not "vagina" or some variation thereof?
Apple rejected an app which featured a cartoon vulva, designed to help teach women how to masturbate.
Tired of ruining your iPhone every time you pass out and spill a Jägerbomb all over your pants? Well, do we have the solution for you.

Aren't you tired of having to guess how you should feel when the weather is totally shitty outside? Why are we allowing our dumb human emotions to dictate this?
One of the world's greatest, most enduring mysteries has finally been solved. No, we haven't figured out what Stonehenge is for, how the pyramids were built, who really killed JFK, what caused the Bloop, the identity of the man in the Taman Shud case, or why Jennifer Aniston keeps getting roles in major studio films —…
There was a time when some folks said of TV: "That garbage will rot your brain." Haters! But brain rot is real, and it's smartphones and video games we should be worried about.
Make sure to disinfect your hands by removing the first three layers of epidermis and then soaking them in bleach for ten minutes after you send your next text. Because, seriously, your hands are fucking disgusting and your precious iPhone is a germ magnet.
This might just be the Grand Guignol of petty thief dumbassery. As is wont to happen, a Brooklyn man named Nadal Nirenberg lost his phone in a cab at 4 AM on New Year's Eve. The next day, Nirinberg saw that whoever grabbed it later was using his OK Cupid profile (linked to his iPhone) to look for dates. So he set up a…
Siri may deny knowing Samuel L. Jackson and be irritated by certain members of the Deschanel family that insist on asking insipid questions about the weather, but she apparently does like some people. In the newest ad for Apple's iPhone 4S, she and John Malkovich seem to share quite a deep connection. Well, as deep…
Siri can be used for many purposes — from telling Zooey Deschanel that when water falls from the sky, that's called "rain" to claiming she doesn't know who Samuel L. Jackson is (seriously! Ask her! She'll lie!) But did you know that Siri can also be a malevolent entity worthy of her own series of R. L. Stein books?
If you think Siri gets bitchy when you ask her about Zooey Deschanel, wait until you see what she does when confronted with Jooey Deschanel.
