Don't call it a cell phone! Call it an iPhone. iPhones are the only phones I see break when dropped on the floor. My Samsung Galaxy Nexus was dropped on ceramic, hard wood floor, and even concrete and all I got was a few small scratches here and there! Apple needs to step up their game.

The next epoch-making technologies may collectively be called〝familiar technology〟,
which removes the barrier between artifacts and natural objects , to improve both of their sustainability,
being friendly to the natural (including body-internal ) and social environments 💖.–article-history–blog–1–lovelucifer_12266020322
