iPhone killer is finally here, not quite what you think

A new open-source device that will kill any past, current, or even future iPhones

A new open-source device that will kill any past, current, or even future iPhones may soon make its way to the market. It is also compatible with all iPads...and any Apple product for that matter. Ronen Kadushin presents to you, the iPhonekiller!

The iPhonekiller is a simple device; it literally does exactly what its name implies--it kills iPhones--unlike current products on the market. The device features a nice wooden handle, and a heavy laser-cut piece of steel. Because it has no moving parts, the iPhonekiller is the latest in solid-state technology.

The device is simple to use: You place the iDevice onto the pavement, hold the "mallet" by its wooden handle high in the air, and give one big swoop at the iPhone, bashing it to smithereens with lots of joy. Finally, you put a smile on your face for a job well done.

Thanks to the iPhonekiller's open-source design, you can download a schematic, and it can be modified, copied, and re-produced by anyone. I don't know about you, but I'm going to make my iPhonekiller while there're still iPhones left to kill!

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
