I don't get it... You guys get your panties in a bunch, write stories like this: http://gizmodo.com/5943324/dont-be-a-jerk-with-your-cool-new-iphone-5

but yet you put out stories about microwaving the new iPhone 5, shooting them with high-powered rifles, and show videos on Shump dunking (hey Shump, how about practicing with a ball. The BKNets got your number; I can say this as I'm a Knick fan, sadly) one ans smashing it to pieces.

It's like you guys are talking out of both ends...
