iPhone saves woman from bear

Grizzly fate for handset

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

An woman in America has survived a potentially deadly bear attack thanks to a knife a handgun first-class hunting skills her iPhone.

The bear facts are these. Earlier this summer, Kris Rowley, Chief Information Security Officer for the State of Vermont, was hiking through one of the region’s woodlands when a bear began following her.

Realising she wasn’t carrying any anti-ursoid equipment, Rowley decided to throw her Apple handset at the bear in the hope of distracting it.

The tactic worked and Rowley escaped.

She later returned to the scene in hope of retrieving her precious smartphone, only to find that – unsurprisingly – the beast had chewed and mauled the device.

Alas, Rowley doesn’t appear to have taken out bear-inflicted damage insurance when she bought her iPhone, because her local Apple store allegedly refused to replace the damaged device for free, according to a report by website CIO.

Rowley opted to pay full price for a new iPhone, but admitted: “While saddened about my mangled iPhone, better the phone than me.” ®
