'Cause of Death' short movie explores the horrors of iOS 7

'Cause of Death' short movie explores the horrors of iOS 7
Apple has proudly announced that more than 200 million users updated to its newest iOS 7 in just 5 days, but ask some of those users and you’d find a lot of frustration with phones randomly rebooting, crashing and/or battery dying quicker than ever. For many, iOS 7 has turned into more of a bug-infested mess, an annoyance rather than a joyful update.

What if those bugs… well bugged you on a daily basis on and on? It seems that this was the inspiration between a short film by Alberto Belli named ‘Cause of Death’. The idea is simple, what if you had to rely on your phone in a critical moment in your life? Could you afford to have it crash on you? What if a mysterious killer in blue jeans and a black turtle-neck is following you around?

We won’t spoil this for you, but keep in mind it’s NSFW for violence and murder. Remember, it’s not always a bug, sometimes it’s a feature.

I'm pretty sure Android has way more problems than this exaggerated parody clip does.

So what your saying is Android has more problems than running out of battery when someone is trying to brutally murder you?..

What I am saying is that android has many more problems than some of you care to admit.

Being an Android user for 3 years now, I can honestly say that I rarely have problems. I have had a Motorola Droid Bionic, HTC DNA, Samsung GS3. My favorite being the HTC DNA but all of them were great phones. One thing that may set me apart from the other people in this world....I don't drop my phone. I also don't bring it into the bathroom with me when I am showering. I am super safe with my phones and maybe that is why I have such good luck with them 99.9% always working the way they should. Never has an Android update seriously messed up my battery life nor cause a STOCK Android app to not work (pssst....iMessaging).

This all has some truth behind it. Yes it was a bit bugged out but their underlying point was VERY clear. iOS 7 is not Apple's pinnacle in OS development. How many updates have there been for iOS 7 already? 3? lol

Well i think a bigger bug was on android 4.3 when it came out and the nexus 4 updated, and people could get any cellular service working whatsoever, and google even said it was a bug and they will fix it in a near future, but indeed I think that is a bigger problem.

I didn't hear about that bug. My son has a nexus 4, and didn't lose any connectivity with the latest update.

There's also a possibility that Jessica Alba and Shakira would want to have a threesome with and the chances of that happening are about the same as the scenarios above.
