Is this why New York City is the Big Apple?

Is this why New York City is the Big Apple?
So it's Friday night and well, not everyone has something terribly exciting to do. So some one did some calculating and discovered that if you took the display from every Apple iPhone sold and combined it into one unit, it would be more than 5000 feet tall. To be exact, it would be 5059 feet tall and measure 2846 feet horizontally. That works out to a surface area of 23 acres.

Overall, more than 352 million units of the Apple iPhone have been sold with 217,073,000 of them containing a 3.5 inch screen. The bottom line? Put all the displays together and you would have a structure wider than Central Park.

Perhaps this is why they call New York City the Big Apple.

If you put the display of every Apple iPhone ever sold together, you would create this structure which would tower over the Big Apple

If you put the display of every Galaxy ever sold together, you would create a wall bigger than "the great wall of china"

Breaking news! The iPhone is more popular than Jesus, and boy is Yoko pissed.

Why, YOKO still uses a flip phone, she's got no reason to be pissed. Unless, of course, that monstrosity some impedes her view of midtown from her southeast window in The Dakota; I would be pissed too if I had to look at that flaming gayness all day from my window. Someone get Julie Newmar??

I'd ask why you know what kind of phone Yoko owns, but after that Julie Newmar reference.... nevermind.
