    3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures --1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (borrowed with gratitude from 37818's sig)

                  THIS from NYTimes...

                  And this week, Apple released a software update to the iPhone that was supposed to fix some early bugs in an updated version of its mobile operating system, iOS 8. The update made some users’ phones unable to make or receive calls, and also rendered the touch identification technology software useless, according to reports.


                  How bout that, a software update that turns your phone into a paperweight! I wish I woulda thunk of that!

                    Apple has responded to the bending issue. They claim it only happened to 9 phones so it is not a problem.

                      I saw this today on the news and thought others might enjoy it:

                      Some great and really funny stuff in there.
