Smashing your phone ? There's an app stupid game for that Just when you though the “there's an app for that” jokes didn't have much life left in them, along comes Send Me to Heaven, aka S.M.T.H., a game that encourages you to despatch you phone to the next life by tossing it into the air. The game's concept is simple: using a …

"Meanwhile, some young people say a cracked screen gives you a sort of street cred, like you’ve been through some real-life stuff.. It’s tough, subversive and just kinda cool."
I don't believe a word of it. That article has about as much credibility as a wide-eyed bible belt church gazette warning about the danger of Dungeons And Dragons turning your kid into a satanist.

@Rukario, I actually skimmed through the comic strip until it ends on We take authority in the name of Jesus... But why is the following part missing, the part where the preacher opens his trousers?
Remeber there are some kids
Who believe that having your pants by your knees indicates you are in a happening crowd and actually choose to listen to Justin Beiber..., while I am moaning at kids can I also say that back in my day when you threw your phone into the air it was more likely to break the ground than the phone.

ditto with licence and license, as in, "James Bond is licensed to kill, especially when he sees how much he must pay for his TV licence."
...and stop calling me Shirley.
Upvoted for the last line!
for the Nokia Landfill 520 unfortunately.
Re: Not available
Nor any iDevice - definitely a gap in the market there.
Awesome can someone link this on the App Store? My mates landfill phone deserves this! He needs a nudge to move away from Apple like everyone else!
Surprised that the article fails to point out that the app used to available in the Apple App store but they removed it on the grounds that it violates some made up rules they have just decided.
God Save the Queen...
it won't get be allowed onto that vicious regime.
When your sex pistol runs dry you know your grandfather would probably approve.
Is there a desktop version?
I'm waiting for the client/server release.
can someone ask Dave Ackerman how much freefall time we'll get if we get SPEARS to drop of a phone running this on the next balloon test.
Many will do this right before they upgrade or claim the insurance on their phone.
