    BEWARE:
    I have lots of fun sending this to people (I've known about this for around a week) and it can have some really bad effects on people's phones. One friend of mine can't open his messages and another one's phone wouldn't turn on for 6 hours. As fun as this is, be careful as people don't fully understand what this thing can do yet or even what it is.

    Why would you ever consider doing this? Especially if there was a chance it might permanently damage the phone?

    C'mon ya'll!

    Its going to be interesting to see how the Apple cult defends this, some tech journalists totally ignore the other flaws in Apple software and products in order to peddle that Apple is the best.

    For the lulz. But seriously, I wouldn't do this to a friend or a random person but if some guy ripped me off, scratched my car or lets his dog shit on my lawn then it's fair game

    Exactly, if a friend intentionally performed an action that could permanently damage a $800 device, then they are
    not your friend. Not everything is a joke.
