    Guess iPhone and F16 don’t go well together ;-)
    Just a few intense dog flights to blow the LCD’s pixels away...

      E-mail Steve. Ask for a new one. You never know.

      at least the battery didn't explode... a fire in your flight suit would have made for some interesting debriefing

      impressive enough that it only seemed to impact the LCD and none of the other components. I wonder if this was on/off at the time

      Nice. I wonder if Apple did any testing at 9Gs before this? Great Post

      Gizmodo is illegally using your photo.

      I'd ask them to pay you, or take it down.

      Darwin wins over Intelligent Design. Again :)

      @Jesse Stein: c'mon, It's a give and take. Why get greedy instead of being thankful? I'm pretty sure the average jetfighter pilot doesn't suffer too much from the constant loss of publishing-royalties. It might even earn Mr. xnir a new one, who knows but Steve.

      @Jesse Stein: Ok, After seeing more of xnir's photostream, I realize your average fighterpilot might actually make some extra money by shooting some fine "aviation p*rn" :)

      Still, I'd think this particular one can count as an exeption. Wouldn't get the highest bidding as a centerfold or something?
