The video is very poor quality and short (on loop), but it’s gone viral all thanks to actress, Porscha Coleman.

Crazy Apple Store Freak-Out Lady

Crazy Apple Store Freak-Out Lady

The incident occurred when an unidentified woman entered the Grove Apple store in Los Angeles pushing a stroller and asked for some parts for her phone… a staff member at the Genius Bar advised her that if she didn’t have an appointment she would have to wait.

When she was given the bad news, she began screeching at the top of her voice, “I was told by Apple care that I could walk in the store and get the parts!!”.. all the while taking it out on her poor baby by smacking her hand into the pram.

In the video, stunned customers and staff can be seen looking over in absolute bewilderment.

Actress Porscha Coleman captured the video, looped it and posted it online. It has since been shared thousands of times on social networking sites (including also now, my blog).

Porscha captioned the short video: “This lady is goin OFF in the Apple Store! LOL U don’t have an appointment, lady!”

Below is a picture of Porscha – now I’m wondering why it really went viral??

My Dog Didn’t Eat My Homework! My iPhone Is In A Cow’s Bum!!

By , November 19, 2012 11:01 pm

Just in case you missed this one, dear constant readers!!

Many people have many excuses for many things… the boy who claims to his teacher, “My dog ate my homework”, “I’m only overweight because I’m happy”… the list goes on.


But what about some of the weird and wonderful excuses that insurance companies hear through their claims processes?

The British website, mobileinsurance, say that they have heard it all, and as such has decided to publish some of the most far-fetched claims it has received over the last 12 months.

Each and every claim has been investigated, and believe it or not, many of the most outrageous claims were accepted!!

For instance, a farmer claims to have lost his iPhone up the rear end of a cow while using it as a torch during calving.

In another case, a woman lost her Nokia when she baked it into a Victoria sponge cake intended for her daughter’s birthday party.

Or what about the couple on a cruise who tried to photograph themselves acting the parts of Jack and Rose in the “I’m the king of the world” scene from the epic movie, Titanic… but in the process, lost their phone over the side and into the deep blue.


Sometimes honesty might not be the best policy? Imagine the embarrassment (or lack thereof) of the twenty-something woman from Bristol who openly admitted to insurers that she had worn out the vibrate function on her BlackBerry Bold 9900 by using it as an “adult toy”. REALLY?? – Did she receive that many phone calls?


Another lady stated that her Samsung Galaxy was snatched by a sneaky seagull while she was walking her dog on an island in South Wales.


Wait there’s more!! – the man who told his insurance company that his iPhone had been stolen by monkeys at a Safari Park while he was filming them… a construction worker who claimed that his phone had dropped down the toilet (this one I believe – I’ve seen it happen!! *embarrassed smile*)

Exclusive iPhone Preview Video – Or Is It?

By , August 30, 2011 11:57 pm

With a backlog of articles to write after a short break from blogging, here’s a video that I’ve been meaning to feature for some time…

An exclusive preview of the iPhone 5… Or is it??


Millions of people have watched the original of this video on YouTube, and by all accounts many of them have actually thought the features are for real.

The video is titled “iPhone 5 Concept Features” and was created by a three-person start-up in San Francisco specialising in visual effects and 3D animation, known as Aatma Studio’s.

Prashanth Shantharam from Aatma said, “A lot of people say it’s fake — but we clearly mention that it’s a concept phone… (Other people) think this could be the real life phone, and they’re sort of debating whether it is real or fake… We’re pretty sure that the iPhone 5 which will come out in October will not have all these features… But this is something that we want to see in the future of any smartphone really — not just the iPhone”

Mr Shantharam went on to say that although the features in his studio’s video might look futuristic, they were actually feasible… “I’m not sure about the timeframe, but it’s definitely in the realm of possibility… The laser keyboards have been used before. Even IBM did this back in 1992, but it hasn’t gone mainstream and mass-market… It’s in the realms of possibility though. It’s up to the companies to incorporate and innovate and try to include these on their smartphones”

The concept iPhone features a finger-nail thin handset, laser keyboard and holographic projection — I could only wish such features are going to be available with the real-life iPhone 5. 🙂
