iPhone bsod

Given how much I rag on anything Microsoft, it only seems fair to note when things go very bad for Apple products. Here’s one that really doesn’t need a blog post, but I couldn’t help myself. Eileen Rivera, from Revision3, posted the above image of her faltering iPhone on her posterous blog with the explanatory note: ***FYI*** this is not a jailbroken 3GS, nor was I trying to jailbreak it. It had been acting funny all day and I turned it off. After an hour I attached it to the charger (still not turning the power on) and the screen on the pic immediately popped up. So even the beloved “Jesus phone” isn’t immune to black-screen-of-death messages. (Weren’t black BSODs an IBM thing in the distant past? Hmmm). 😦
