While most young people would be super excited to unwrap an Apple iPhone box on Christmas day, Grandma was not so pleased.

"I'm really not equipped to handle this," she said, noting that she uses a landline.

Fortunately for her, it wasn't exactly an iPhone, but it was still pretty sweet.

She told him not to do that.

Magician Chris Ballinger recently performed an iPhone trick on YouTube comedian GloZell as part of his "Magic Mondays" video series.

The augmented reality app he uses on her, called My Pet Boris, makes it appear as though there is spider on your hand.

Watch until the end for a special surprise, and the best possible reaction from GloZell.

Arachnophobes and Weave-a-phobes beware.

iPhone 6 users are reporting that their hairs (of both beard and top-of-the-skull variety) are getting caught in the space where the aluminum meets glass on the new device. But is this even possible? The folks at Mashable are determined to put it to the test.

After reports began to break that Apple's new iPhone 6 Plus would bend under light stress, trolls at 4chan and Reddit set out to advertise it as another new feature - much like their fake "Wave" stunt. The resulting video is... surprisingly close to what an actual Apple ad would look like. And others around the internet are getting in on the fun:

It's been only a few days since the launch of the iPhone 6, and Apple fans have already found a problem in their cool new toy. Reports coming from the MacRumors forums and Twitter are showing that the aluminum-glass slab that is the iPhone 6 Plus are bending after extended time in front pockets. Of course that goes double if you happen to wear skinny jeans with tight pockets - but luckily Apple fans aren't the type to be that hip, right?



Well. Huh.

Here's the video of the entire bend test courtesy of Unbox Therapy:

Currently, Facebook's News Feed is essentially an unindexed stream of data from friends or pages you've followed. The new Paper app is attempting to make that a better experience by letting you compile content into sections and favorite interests.

"You can customize Paper with a choice of more than a dozen other sections about various themes and topics—from photography and sports to food, science and design. Each section includes a rich mix of content from emerging voices and well-known publications," the company explained in a news posting about the app.
Paper also changes the design by letting you thumb through cards instead of a vertical stream. You can tilt your phone to explore high-resolution panoramic photos. Full screen videos will automatically play. You'll also know exactly what your post or photo will look like thanks to live previews.

The app will be available February 3.

A video was recently released of a man on a Seattle metro bus fighting back against a gunman who was robbing everyone of their cell phones. Immersed in his own phone, it wasn't until the gunman flashed the weapon in his face that he jumped into action, taking the gun from his hands and tackling him to the floor.
