What people aren’t saying about the iPhone

So, it’s not far off now, one of the biggest launches on consumer electronics history.  Yes, I am, of course, talking about the new George Foreman Grill.  Now, you can grill half a donkey in 46 seconds while still retaining 82% of the nutrition and banishing 68% of the fat.  Mmmmm, donkey.  No, I’m actually […]
