Never have to hear of the iPhone again

Reg web app will take away the pain

Security and trust: The backbone of doing business over the internet

You've got your shiny new iPhone, so the last thing you want is to read any more about it, luckily we can now offer a Web App which will remove all references to Apple's slate and replace them with a term of your preference: at least while you're surfing El Reg.

Some people here at The Register are getting a little bored of the iPhone, so we thought we would spend the weekend creating a WebApp to remove all references to it, though replacing them seemed more fun.

You can try the application here, though only if you're using an iPhone (or an iPod Touch): it also very nearly works on a Nokia N95, though you'll have to hit the additional Back button at the bottom of the first page to kick it into action. On desktop Safari it just looks strange.

Given the lacklustre UK launch we're not sure how many will be interested, but if enough of you are then we'll run a feature next week showing how the WebApp was written so you too can create filters for your least-favourite words, or perhaps create something useful. ®
