Apple Reveals iPhone With 15.6" Viewable Screen

Apple Reveals iPhone With 15.6' Viewable Screen

CUPERTINO, Calif. (CAP) - Sources inside Apple tell CAP News the technology giant is prepared to announce the release of a new iPhone with over five times the visible screen real estate of current iPhones.

The iPhone LT boasts a monumental 15.6" LCD screen with all the standard features one has come to expect from Apple phones, plus a detachable handle on the back since the device is too wide to hold in the palm of a hand.

"We even increased the size of the onscreen keyboard so each of the keys is actually larger than a standard human fingertip," said one of the engineers on the project. "But we kept the same bubblegum interface of IOS7 since everyone loves it so much."

While critics acknowledge that the iPhone LT handily wins the smart phone screen size race, they argue that the gadget's size makes it "more like a gigantic tablet" than a phone and question its portability since it doesn't fit into a pocket.

"Umm, have you ever been walking down the street or driving on the highway at 80 miles per hour?" said the source. "Nobody actually puts their iPhones away: they're consulting them for life decisions every waking moment.

"And now with our new Simul-Quad Display technology, people can be four times more distracted from their surroundings than ever before!" he added.

The source also pointed out that nobody uses their iPhone as a phone anymore, so the awkwardness of holding such a big screen up to one's face to talk is "really a non-factor" but also said that once everyone is doing it, "it won't seem so awkward."

"What will seem awkward at first is the new TorsoTime app that replaces FaceTime, which essentially gives you a full body shot of the person you're talking to," the source said. "So no more of those FaceTime calls while you're naked from the waist down.

"Unless, you know, that's what you're both into," he noted.

For their part, Samsung is reportedly working on a smart phone with a 21" display that can sense up to eight simultaneous taps or swipes so multiple people can use the phone at once.

    Vietnamese developer Dong Nguyen has released the long-awaited sequel to Flappy Bird with the latest killer app for social media, Flappy Gums. "People like to talk about theirself and my new app give them point for every self-serving comment they make," Nguyen said. "Double point for posting selfie!" «» NASA is backpedaling today, saying the planet they believed they discovered revolving around a distant sun was actually just a plane going overhead. "We were excited because we thought we even found inhabitants," said one astronomer. "Looking back, it did seem odd that the planet's name was tattooed across itself." «» Entrepreneur Richard Branson is assembling a team of adventurers whose mission will be to rebuild the now defunct Comet Ison. "Once we have all our supplies - ice chunks, dirt particles, space debris - we'll launch our rocket toward the comet and rebuild it in mid-flight," said Branson. "Ison will live on!" «» Two cosmonauts who carried the Russian Olympic torch on a spacewalk to promote the upcoming Winter Games accidentally dropped the torch and could do nothing but watch as it floated away. Lamented one official, "We told them to try string around wrist like child with balloon, but do they listen?" «» Researchers at ITT Technical Institute have created a state of the art ironing board that doesn't squeal like fingernails on a chalk board when opened. Next they're working on a series of ironing board covers featuring sports and bikini models to try to entice men to actually do the ironing. «» Apple has launched its own vessel iSkiff into San Francisco Bay in order to compete with Google Barge. "We have no idea what Google's doing out there, but we're going to get out there so we can do it, too," said CEO Tim Cook. "Except, you know, do it better." «» BlackBerry users concerned about the company's future since its sale to Fairfax are being allowed to exchange their smartphones for other items of equal value. The buyback program offers up packs of gum, costume jewelry and other trinkets for the devices, which most agree is more than a fair trade. «» Google is planning to bring oat bran, flaxseed and other whole grains to 34 cities as part of its burgeoning Google Fiber project. "Muffins, cereal, breads - we aim to keep America regular," said a spokesperson. "Our country may have an obesity epidemic, but we don't have to poop like it." «» After suggesting that learning a trade is a better career choice than an art history degree, President Obama has offered his apologies by delivering coffee and doughnuts to unemployed art history majors. "Chin up, my jobless friends," he said. "This country needs more baristas who can wax poetic about Rembrandt." «» The CDC reports that a mysterious stomach ailment has befallen 65% of the American population, with symptoms appearing en masse just hours following the conclusion of the Super Bowl.
