    Default 9 Customers!!!! CASE CLOSED! #BEND

    Apple says iPhone 6 Plus bending through normal use is 'extremely rare' | The Verge

    Even if this number isn't accurate, let's be GENEROUS and give it 100!

    That's 100 out of what... 5-10 million ?!!

    I don't think that there are 5-10 million iPhone 6 Plus customers out there yet, given the supply constraints and the fact that there were 10 million total units sold over the first weekend.

    Heres the recipe for iPhone FUD:*
    (Fear Uncertainty Doubt)

    1. Identify an issue that all other smartphones have (i.e. cellular antenna attenuation, screens that can be scratched with materials that are harder than the screen, metal casing that can be scratched with materials that are harder than the metal casing, phishing easily-guessed passwords from people who fail to utilize two-factor and other provided protections to obtain photos taken with smartphones from online storage, metal cases that bend under extreme force, etc.) or concoct an issue which has no factual basis at all (i.e. iPhone 5c, which outsold all other non-iPhones on the planet, is a failure.)

    2. Important: Pretend that issue is only attributable to Apples iPhone. Feign concern.

    3. Make goofy videos using iPhone only to illustrate this issue that all other smartphones have. Continue to feign concern.

    4. Blow said issue wildly out of proportion via the media echo chamber with much wringing of hands.

    5. After Apples iPhone destroys you in premium smartphone sales, wonder why your iPhone FUD failed yet again.

    There are more than 9 retarded people in the world. Expect more. Maybe they should get one of those indestructible Nokias that played snake if they want to thrash their phone.

    If I bent my 6 Plus I bet you I could still sell it to someone in China. They wouldn't give two cacas that it's bent.

    These issues with every new Apple product is getting old. Yes, it can and will bend. So will my computer or car keys for that matter. Its a technology tool/device. Treat it as one with some care.

    Reports of bent iPhone 6 aligns with horrible history of bent smartphones

    The iPhone 6 isn't the only phone that has issues but it seems nobody cares. Apple is evil.

    That is absurd. "I went in to a store and destroyed a $800 device to satisfy my curiosity." You are either joking or broke the law. Wow.

    Nice job. Irresponsible actions that could be considered vandalism.

    I'm pretty sure he's joking. People seem to have more balls over the Internet than they do in real life situations.

    I say the number is 7. I don't count the guy trying to get likes on youtube bending phones or the giant guy from geeks.com. Maybe its less than that, cause you have samsung employees bending theirs and putting pics on the net.

    That comment makes me wonder how many Samsung employees use an iPhone as their primary phone vs how many Apple employees use something other than an iPhone as their primary phone. We'll never find out, but it would be interesting.
