    Oddly most of the image used for news stories seems to have jailbroken iPhones.

    Same Image.

    Someone needs to look up the definition of irony, because there is none here.

    Not really irony...

    Anyway, it makes sense in the CNN story, cause you could argue that since the article is on AT&T being so bad that people unlock their iPhones for other carriers :D...then again, it's not like the other alternative to AT&T (that works with the iPhone) is that appealing...

    Course that's like spraying random paint on a piece of paper or writing a book and submitting them to analysts who may find so many complex things you never thought of.

    This. If need be, look up George Carlin's rant/bit on irony/coincidence and stupid people.

    Why oh why? Why do Americans perpetuate the stereotype that we don't know how to use the word irony. There's no irony here, hell this isn't even a coincidence. (Coincidences are when I most often hear irony used wrong.)

    Although it is ironic that someone named Full of Win would post a thread that is full of so much fail.

    The best quote I ever heard about that song is that it should have been called 'A series of bummers'
