Land of the Broken iPhone

To get things straight: I would never buy an iphone, because apple is so stuck up with their hardware. "Hey I'm apple and you buy my shit for twice what it's worth." Not what I'm looking for. Furthest I will go is the ipod, since I have a 160 gig classic.
So I never actually thought I'd own one of these, due to the large cost and small hard drives (hence the 160 gig). I was wrong. About 3 months ago, my best friend [who in all honesty is totally dopey] dropped his iphone straight onto sharp rocks. Boom. Smash. iPhone no happy.
So the one day, my friend comes up to me [before I know about the death of the phone] and said "I know you always wanted an iphone, so here you go." He handed me this:



Surprisingly, everything on this iphone works perfectly, even the screen. I've been so happy ever since he gave it to me, and I jailbroke it the day after I received it (which is now legal, thanks to our wonderful library of Congress)

What's the best piece of beaten-up tech you guys own?

  3. My DS has survived so many drops and bangings and scrapes and it still works like a charm.

    Got it back when it first came out, the original DS.

  7. I dropped my laptop the other day and messed it up, not the screen thankfully. But my friend dropped his droid type phone and the ENTIRE thing is shattered. Still works though.
