*Please tell me you were not one of those who actually believed the online “ads” that claimed a “quick charge” to the new iPhone 6, could be done by popping it in the microwave. Please.
Yeah the ad looked pretty convincing, but c’mon!
However, if you were one of the unfortunate ones who tried this with your new investment, you probably realize now that the device is beyond ruined. And no, your insurance won’t cover this, deductible aside, they probably weren’t thinking you would put it in the microwave.
Anyway, moving forward, aside from a huge dent in your pocket, I sincerely hope there were no other, er, how should I put this, incidents, like, your actions starting a fire, or worse, an explosion because microwaves don’t do metallic.
By the way, the L.A.P.D. just came out with a warning about that.
But hey, that cruel Internet hoax propelled by the same stupid website that leaked those nude celebrity pics, didn’t only fool you, it even fooled some of the cops at L.A.P.D., who joined in and started spreading the news, according to what their Communications Dept. placed on Twitter!
The photo-shopped yet convincing ad (hoax) claims that the most recent software, iOS8, has a feature called “Wave,” which allows for quick charging.
The directions, (also fake), call for the phone to be “charged” for 60 seconds at 700W or 70 seconds at 800W. The fake ad even goes on to say the charging time should not exceed 300 seconds.
Of course by now, you do realize that the charging instructions are fake too. Right?
