Go On, Be Annoying: Infinite Text-in-Progress Prank for iOS 7

Text in Progress Icon Prank

You know how you’re texting with someone, and it’s just taking forever for them to respond? It especially sucks when you’ve just asked a question you’re dying to know the answer to. It almost seems like those little dots on the text-in-progress icon are mocking you… Well, I hate to break it to you, but if you’ve been staring at that message thread for an hour and the icon indicated that the person on the other end is still typing, then I think you’ve just been pranked.

How? With this clever animated GIF that pranksters Miscellaneous Mischief have made available here: Infinite Text-In-Progress. The site hosts the GIF that looks like the legit one for the iPhone, and all people have to do is download that and send it to their victim of choice.

Now that you know, the only thing left to do is return the favor (but those people will probably catch on pretty fast, since they already know about it) and pass it on (but have some pity and compassion, and don’t do it to the elderly.)

For Cryin Out Loud, iOS 7 Does Not Make Your iPhone Waterproof!

ios7-waterproof

4Chan is at it again. Unbelievable as it seems, they’ve managed to convince some stellar specimens that iOS 7 would make their iPhones waterproof. The result? Bricked iPhones, of course. They distributed a fake ad designed in the same style as Apple adverts on social media sites, which claimed that the new OS would allow their phone to shut off “its vital parts” in the event that it detected being submerged. Yeah…

We’re going to go ahead and assume OhGizmo! readers know better, so take this article as more of a “wow, can you believe people would fall for that” type of post, rather than a serious PSA. But, well… you never really do know and assuming is generally a bad idea. So uh, folks, please don’t drop your phones in the water, ok?
