back to article Foxconn exec on iPhone 6: You're BENDING it WRONG

The head of Apple partner Foxconn has blamed the flexible iPhone 6 scandal — now using the grimly predictable suffix "gate" — on nasty, gossiping rivals. "Bendgate" video bloggers claim the new iPhone, when strapped to fanbois' thighs, has been losing its shape quicker than Man Utd's back four. CEO Terry Gou maintains that …

    I think Uri Geller would have something to say about that...

      There is another option to that phrase, but I shan't go there.

      "bend me, shake me anyway you want me as long as you love me, it's alright".

      Anything can bend, even an erect pen*s.

      Though I admit some are bendy by default.

      If Steve were here, he'd know what to do - invent a new slogan to divert people.

      What about "Bend Different"?

    Ill give this my best shot...

    Ill throw it in the ring.

    Where bending is concerned we know from The Matrix that it isnt the spoon bending only ourselves. Which leads to the conclusion...there is no spoon. If theres no spoon theres no iPhone 6.

    Based on theory that its a lie (there is no spoon) and that the cake is also a lie...am I right in thinking that the none existant iPhone 6 is made of cake? Or is it made of spoons because it bends? Or us because we're the spoon?

    The iPhone is made of either people, spoons or cake.

    Someone help me work this out!

      "The iPhone is made of either people, spoons or cake".

      The only thing we can be sure of is that all 3 items, at some point, played a pivotal role in the design and manufacture of the iPhone 6.....mmm, i could just eat some cake now.

        The conclusion can only be that the iPhone 6 is some sort of sentient cake serving scoop.

          According to Carl Sagan, we're all made of "Star Stuff" So that means the iPhone 6 is made of sunbeams and rainbows...

        You spelled it wrong, at some point, people, spoons and *coke* were involved in the design

    Is his denial because Foxconn let too many cases.....

    go without proper heat treating of the aluminum??????

    Or is it because Foxconn would be entirely liable for their subcontractors screwups?????

    BTW, Bender from Futurama would know something about bending, with hands.

    "You're BENDING it WRONG "

    So what's the right way of bending it, then?

    1. Jedit

      Re: "You're BENDING it WRONG "

      That's the point. Gou is saying that the iPhone 6 isn't bending at all, reality is just distorting around it. It's like watching Chemical Ali at work.
