iPhone burns a man alive!!1!

Have I got your attention? Clarification – the guy was alive when his iPhone gave him a burn, and he is still alive. No one has died. Okay? Okay. Luke Schillab, USA, was unlucky enough to jump into the swimming pool with his iPhone 6 in pocket. The phone, of course, died. When Schillab realised what happened, he tried an old home remedy of putting the wet phone into the bag of rice, counting on the rice to absorb the water. When a few hours passed and the phone was still not responding, Schillab gave up. He put the phone on the bed (as later stated, he did it by a force of habit) and ...

Looks like Apple is working on its very own graphic chip

Long story short, Apple has cut ties with Imagination Technologies, a British chip designer that worked on the PowerVR graphics processors. Imagination Technologies’ has stated that it is so, because Apple is „working on a separate, independent graphics design in order to control its products and will be reducing its future reliance on Imagination’s technology”.

One Richard Bull, Great Britain, was using his iPhone while taking a bath. Mr. Bull decided that it will be a good idea to plug his device into the power outlet, so that it can charge while he bathes. It is a shame, then, that he did not take into consideration a fact that putting a wired charger on his chest while dipping in the water is a dangerous idea. Unfortunately, the worst happened and ...
