Joy of Tech has hilarious ideas for new iPhones

By , Aug 25, 2013

Joy of Tech has weighed in on the iPhone 5S/5C memes. As per usual with their illustrations, the comic treads the fine line between poking fun and being downright hilarious. My favorite is their take on the rumored iPhone 5S in gold/champagne color: make it so the gold peels off revealing a layer of chocolate.

Oh, and the box should include the iGoose, a golden case that lays a golden iPhone and lets you recharge it by “stuffing the phone back up the goose’s butt”.

I’d hate spoil the fun for you prospective buyers so jump past the fold for the full table…

Joy of Tech (new iPhones)

Remember just a few weeks ago when the Internet thought all the talk of a plastic iPhone and a gold iPhone 5S colorway was just crazypants analysts speculating?

To all you Doubting Thomas’s out there, welcome to the new Apple.

September 10 can’t come soon enough.

According to iDB’s non-scientific poll of its readers, more than one out of each three respondents would consider a gold color option when upgrading to an iPhone 5S.

    I actually like the last two ideas

    • Jay Kay

      Me too

  • TeddyBearStand

    Those canned 5C’s look tasty.

    iOS 7 is so ugly. Kill it with fire please.

    • Scena

      Everyone that dislikes this because they like iOS 7 is obviously a drug addict. Cocaine sniffers definitely.

      This is really pathetic. You can spew your hate against iOS 7 but people aren’t allowed to have a different opinion than yours?

    “Doubting Thomas’ ” not “Doubting Thomas’s “.

    • Yaseen AlSuwaidan

      Actually, the second is right (Doubting Thomas’s).

      Reason/Rule: It is not about the “s” being at the end. It is about the word being plural (this is why it ends with “s”). So, Thomas is single, not plural, even it ends with “s”.

      • iThinkergoiMac

        Actually, neither of you are right. The plural of “Thomas” is “Thomases”.

        Reason/Rule: Apostrophes are used to show possession or contraction. For words ending with the letter S, “es” is added to the end to create the plural form. Class -> Classes. Glass -> Glasses. Gas -> Gases. Apostrophes are NEVER used to indicate plurality in English. If you see one used to do so, you automatically know it’s incorrect.

        That being said, names are funny things, since we usually don’t need to come up with a plural form of them.

      • Yaseen AlSuwaidan

        I did not say “Thomas” is plural. However, which one is correct?

        Thomas’s car or Thomas’ car?

        I mean, it is easy to say that “Yaseen’s car” is correct because “Yaseen” does not end with “s”.

        What about the names which ends with “s” such as “Thomas”?

        I’m not sure any more.

      • iThinkergoiMac

        Unless I’m mistaken, that was the argument that Joseph was making. The phrase in question is: “To all you Doubting Thomas’s out there” which is clearly talking about multiple Thomases, not possession. So that’s how I formulated my argument.

        Words ending in S can be made possessive by simply adding an apostrophe, even if they aren’t plural. So, “Thomas’ car” is correct.

      • Yaseen AlSuwaidan

        I see it now. ;) thanks.

    Lol you Wish! Apple is not innovative anymore! They will just introduce old tech in new packing nothing more.

    • Brandon Miranda

      yep new specs = old tech right!

      • Petter Johnson

        Lol Yes!

      • Brandon Miranda

        I mean if you ignore the 5c. The 5s is exactly like the 5 right? With its 64-bit Arm v8 architecture. It’s 64-bit os. It’s fingerprint scanner. It’s space grey and gold offerings right? Hmmm. What’s your definition of old tech and new packing? ‘Cuz it’s hugely different then mine and quite possibly every other sane person on this planet.
