OK, maybe not humanity so much as phonemanity. Or something. Our iPhone competition — whereby you can win one of two unlocked iPhones and an Altec Lansing speaker system and dock — closes tomorrow afternoon at 5pm AEST, and more entries are as we speak being uploaded to our channel on YouTube. Some of them are brilliant, some are hilarious, and some are deeply disturbing. Have a look and see what you think.

If you think you can do better and you haven’t entered yet, hurry up!

If you recall, the competition involves demonstrating how much you want an iPhone by proving how much you despise your old phone, and you demonstrate that by destroying your old phone in the most heinous way imaginable. The winner is judged on creativity and skill.

We’ve had phones getting crushed, sawn in half, minced, shot, dropped from great heights, baked, blown up in rockets and smashed with bats — and more. It’s good to see such creativity and enthusiasm, but remind me never to get on the wrong side of you folks.

I’ve had nightmares about lawnmowers.

Anyway, we’ll be announcing the winner next week when we’ve had a chance to review all entries and let the horror soak in. Thanks to all who have entered so far, and if you haven’t yet, get a wriggle on.
