    Default Meet The Real iPhone Killer



    Designer Ronen Kadushin has designed the ultimate iPhone killer. And this one - unlike a plethora of smartphones that have promised to do the same - can actually obliterate any iPhone in its wake. Literally.

    Your iPhone will certainly be modified for good if you take this little beauty to your handset. Thanks to Kadushin - a designer with an obvious sense of humor - we can now enjoy an open-source mallet called the "iPhone Killer." And you guessed it. It's used for "killing" iPhones by smashing them to pieces. Sort of like "jailbreaking"... but with just the "breaking" part.

    Mocking the tired, overused buzz words common to the smartphone industry, the "iPhone Killer" was presented in Steve Jobs-like fashion by Mr. Kadushin and has quickly become a hot item of amusement across the blogosphere. "Whenever a new hand held device, or new exciting smartphone hits the market," said Kadushin, "a question roars through the internet, tech blogs and news: Is this the iPhone killer? I'd like to introduce you to the iPhonekiller... It's amazing... It is an open design, you can download it from my website, produce and use it."



    Kadushin, of course, is alluding to this big fat mallet that sports a laser-cut steel head attached to a sturdy wooden handle. I would imagine it's pretty effective at pulverizing an assortment of gadgets, but the look and feel just scream "iPhone."

    I was just realizing how useless this article was until I went back and read the author's name. Now it all makes sense.

    How is this a waste of time? HTC is producing a iPhone killer... then Blackberry is up for something... then HP is doing something with palm tablets.. to kill iPhone.. well Nothing had happened these past years.. This guys actually designed one that will definitely kill the iPhone once and for all!

    I would have made an elbow joint on it so it hits the whole surface of the iPhone this is a pretty faulty design and uncraftsmen like poor design and it's not even sleek on the sides maybe I'll take sum time and make the proper iPhone smasher!!! Hehe Ismasher

    SMH @ the people that are actually bothered by this being posted. Just read it, find it funny or not, move the **** on, and get over yourself.

    Hilarious!

    Seriously???? Somebody "insults" your precious iPhone and you guys immediately hate this? If this was called the Android killer you would all probably love it. F*cking learn to take a joke people! Does Jobs let you people have a sense of humor or is it a thing of the past like flash?
