BBC News - Bent iPhone claims put Apple under pressure to respond
"But Chris Green, principal technology analyst at the advisory service Davies Murphy Group, thought that Apple should take a different tack.

"This is not an issue that Apple - or other phone companies - need to be compelled to respond to or fix. If anything this is a reflection of how people have started to use devices beyond what they were designed for," he said.

"Even the most recent smartphones are not designed to be put in trouser pockets - front or back - where they are going to be under the most chassis strain. And this just illustrates the fact that the public's desire for manufacturers to strive for ever thinner and lighter devices means that we are getting ever more fragile devices.

"Just casually sticking a £700 smartphone in your pocket is an increasingly reckless thing to do.""

haha yes who would want to put a phone in their pocket! ho ho. foolish phone owners. carry it at all times. cradle it in your hands like an expensive stupid baby you use for tweeting about your regular baby, which you should just jam in your pocket.

Can y'all be used to refer to a single person? - The Week
"Maybe Northerners aren't just making stuff up. They have been hearing singular "y'all" all along. They just didn't realize it was not part of Southern English, but a different dialect, Exaggerated Southern English. The very fact of their not being Southern is what brings the singular "y'all" into existence."
