2000 messages crash Olympic snowboarder's Apple iPhone
Unfortunately, the number of messages he received made his iPhone go on strike. After telling Yahoo Sports that he was planning on calling the female admirers, it turned out that his phone had crashed making that option impossible at that moment. Luckily for Sobolev, his iPhone was only momentarily disgusted and did boot-up again, allowing him to brag to reporters covering the games.
The International Olympic Committee is probably made up of the same type of conservative old men that you would expect to see running such an august body, and they were simply not amused with Sobolev's self-promotion stunt. They forced him to cover up the number on his next run.

Yep. You started with saying that he didn't get what he wished for, but at the end of the article... well, it sounds like he -did- enjoy what he wished for.

Well i've checked all over the internet about this story, and it doesn't mention what kind of "phone" this 22 year old Russian was carrying... It is however known that Samsung gave every Olympian a Note 3, but asked them to cover up their iphone logo's during opening ceremony... But S4 I don't know, where's your reference.

It's news because Phonearena want us to know that they are not biased as this article shows us that iPhones crash. In any case, I have no intention to start a flame war.
