Samsung Prove Their Note 4 Doesn’t Bend.

Much has been made recently of claims that the new iPhone 6 is a piece of flimsy, easy to bend, overpriced crap.

While the moral panic continues for Apple fans over the product’s launch problems, rivals Samsung have merrily hopped onto the bandwagon and gleefully seized the opportunity for a bit of one-upmanship.

Here’s their advert for the Note 4 where they happily carry out a three-point bend test with a machine just to drive home the message that their product won’t buckle no matter how many times it’s sat on, by however large an arse that’s doing the sitting might be.

Android Users Now Have Instagram…Much to The Hatred Of Apple Fans.

Earlier this week Android announced that the much anticipated Instagram app is now readily available for their users. Instagram is an application primarily used on Apple iPhones which allows users to: ‘Take a photo, apply a digital filter, then share it on a variety of social networking services including Instagram’s own.  A distinctive feature confines photos into a square shape, in homage to both the Kodak Instamatic and Polaroid cameras.’

Of course not everyone was celebrating the launch of Instagram for Android, in fact such was the first world fury of some proud Apple fanboys they took to Twitter to vent their spleens.

The entire sorry collection of nerd rage can be read HERE.
