There’s an iPod version too, and if it looks familiar, that’s because you saw me and… Read More

  • Germaphobes no longer have to be afraid of the phone

    Howard Hughes would not have stood in line with all the other plebeians to get an iPhone 3G as he would have been too afraid of catching some murky disease. He would of however, sent one of his minions out to get one, and then, of course, have it sterilized. The next step would have been for the famous germaphobe tycoon to pick out a case for his rapidly-getting-infected phone. I think I… Read More

    I guess it’s not so much a rumor as sound business practice (and scamming), but as long as it’s not confirmed, I’ll continue calling it a rumor.
