Pair of Apple iPhones to be aboard last shuttle flight next month
The great thing is that you do not have to be a rocket scientist to conduct the same experiments. An App Store version of the Space Labs for iOS is available for 99 cents and will let you perform the same four trials with the information simulated to account for "the presence of gravity" which of course, is not found in space.
The last space shuttle launch will be on July 8th and the two Apple iPhone units will be strapped in nice and tight. Since its earth-bound launch in 2007, the device has taken the smartphone industry to new heights, but nothing like this. And considering that this will mark the end of the program, these two Apple iPhones will be probably be setting some records for travel that may never be broken.

Before the Android/Iphone wars start i'm just going to say something...your both at the same level of fanboy-ism and you both practically have the same functions. Its funny how i read about Isheep bragging about their perfect Iphones and then Android fanboys backfire by telling them what the iphone is missing and how much better android is. Your all the same, and this is coming from a wise old dinosaur blackberry and symbian user who has no care for an entertaining device like WP7 with their Xbox live.
