Hope Apple sues his sorry bottom
Hopefully lewis makes a statement soon, now that BI is running articles about him.
Like I said in another thread, it was an obvious fake. they used camera tricks and lighting. the secret was it was the camera lens that was bending, not the phone, very tricky stuff.
People are such scumbags for attention/money nowadays
This guy deserves to get his ass handed to him by Apple for product defamation. Hope they get him for every penny of ad revenue he collected off that video and then some!
Is there really anything he can say to refute this? It seems fairly obvious what happened.
It actually irks me to no end that an absolute nobody can tarnish the efforts of hundreds if not thousands of people who slaved over this device to make it as good as it can possibly be. Just a 5 minute YouTube video can affect the sales of one of the biggest companies in the world.
he bent the phone alright but he did it on already bent phone therefore it's structural integrity was already compromised.
Apple should sue him for every cent he's got!
I'm glad for the video.
Because of #bendgate we got to see all about Apples distress practices. All sorts of cool things we wouldn't have seen otherwise.
He definitely should explain it. However, he still bent one in real time. It's not like he only showed a before and after the clocks indicate a swap out. Plus there are numerous other videos and accounts of it being able to bend intentionally with just your hands and perhaps unintentionally.
Like I've said since the beginning. The truth will come out regardless of what it is or what anyone wants. No need to get your panties all wrapped up. Just get some popcorn.
as a proud scalper, this guy made me lose around $900.
iphone pluses are going for around $100-$150 less on craigslist since Tuesday.
oh, I thought everyone already knew that. Ya the phone was already bent from normal use, you didnt know that? He even said so ahead of time.
Nobody faked bending a thin aluminum phone.
Reviled as your scalping activities may be by many, your argument is one of the most rational things I've read on here today.
I believe this guy is up to 10 million views, which netted him a nice profit of at least $200,000.
Not even close to $200,000.
He has 33 million views as of this post.
You make roughly $2,000 per 1 million video views on YouTube : http://www.businessinsider.com/how-much-money-youtube-stars-actually-make-2014-2
$2,000 x 33 = $66,000.
nah he's been well past that..he's at 35 million views right now.
anyway this timestamp think doesn't necessarily mean that it's "faked"
Your bike is made of aluminium probably 30x thicker than the iPhone and made of hollow square/circular sections.
If you know anything about mechanics you know what is the section modulus...
Now calculate the section modulus of a sheet of aluminium of less than half a millimetre thick and the one of a circular hollow section of at least 2mm
Thanks for the correction. Still not bad. $66,000 for about an hour's worth of work.
Was too annoyed to correct the guy.
I wish it were 200,000 for a million lmao.
I could get that much in a month with the right tags haha.
No problem, helped me verify it as well so I'm happy you brought it up
Yeah, not bad at all though being able to make a years worth of salary simply by post a short, panic troll video.
He could've filmed the bending first and actually bent a phone. Then filmed an intro with an unbent 6+ - would explain the time difference. Why film a whole intro if it didn't end up actually bending? He tried the bending first.
So I don't exert 30x more force on my bike when I jump 15 ft. Kickers?
Boeing 737 fuselage? Material and thickness? Please elaborate.
My favorite part of that article was BI citing a source as a Reddit user named "tittywagon".
why thank you sir
