News, but not the serious kind
Do WHAT to make my iPhone work?
Blog Guy, I come to you for all of my gadget advice. I guess you know about the problems with the iPhone 4, what with that external antenna and everything.
I’ve tried holding it the way Apple says to, but I’m still losing calls. What else can I do?
Did you read the advisory a couple of days ago, to use it when you’re riding piggy-back on somebody wading through water?
Yes, and my wife has been a real sport about it. It helps some, but not enough.
Yikes. Well, what about Apple’s newest suggestion?
That weird one about drunks on a bench?
Exactly, but you have to follow every detail: “Find a bench with two guys passed out on it, dial your number, then slam yourself in the mouth until the call goes through.”
I did all that. Even wore the red shoes.
Did you hit yourself hard enough?
My lips were bleeding!
You’re sure the guys were really drunk?
I’m in Pamplona! They were totally hammered on too much sickeningly sweet sangria!
Where will I EVER find enough people so puking drunk in one place again?
You’re in luck, buddy. Oktoberfest starts soon. Is there anybody you want to call from Germany?
