Remember #BendGate? Well there’s a new ‘gate‘ in town for iPhone 6 users and it is absolutely hair-raising if not downright irritating.

It’s only been one week since Adam Levine got on stage during a Samsung Galaxy Note 4g and Galaxy Note Edge event to discuss his new partnership with the company, but just last night the musician used an iPhone to tweet about an upcoming appearance on The Ellen Show.
A 13-year-old girl was awoken by the smell of something burning. That something was her Samsung Galaxy S4..
As she slept, the Galaxy S4 slipped under her pillow and caught fire in the middle of the night and had begun to burn her pillow and sheets.
“I didn’t think much of it, so I went back to sleep and then I woke up again and it was more prominent,” 13-year-old Ariel Tolfree told KDFW. Continue reading
Last month’s Oscars ceremony took us all for a ride after portraying Ellen DeGeneres’ celebrity selfie as totally spontaneous, when in fact it was a well planned million-dollar Samsung promotion. The resulting tweet of the now iconic image became the most popular in history.
Now we are learning the truth about another so-called spontaneous selfie, this time depicting Red Sox star, David Ortiz, a.k.a., big papi and President Obama. As it turns out, the seemingly impromptu moment – was in reality another carefully crafted Samsung ruse.. This time using the White House as their backdrop.
Samsung, no doubt feeling the heat from getting outed by a mystery source, released the following statement,
“When we heard about the visit to the White House, we worked with David and the team on how to share images with fans. We didn’t know if or what he would be able to capture using his Note 3 device.” source
Did ex-tech and Shark Tank billionaire Mark Cuban really just say on Reddit that “Windows is better than Mac?” Apparently when it comes to cellphone operating systems he did, “I have 2 phones. First is Samsung the second was an iPhone 5. The new Nokia with windows replaced my iPhone 5… It crushes the iPhone 5. Not even close…” Said Cuban.
Is it just me or is it kind of shocking to hear anybody famous talking down an Apple product?
Cuban also found time in the ranting Reddit post to come clean on his real feelings about the new MacBook air, “I have a MacBook Air $939.99 at B&H Photo-Video, but am trying the new Acer with Windows 8,” Cuban admitted, “I really, really like Windows 8.”
I guess he “really, really” likes the new Windows products and absolutely LOVES their new phone OS, “I think as far as phones, both Samsung 3 with Android and the Windows phone kick the iPhone’s ass. It’s not even close.”
