Brownlee reports, “The model’s iPhone has been artlessly photoshopped into a Samsung Galaxy S4, even though that device features a 5-inch display that is so large, the phone’s tiny size in the model’s hand implies a woman who is over eight-feet tall.”

MacDailyNews Take: Here’s an idea for Tim Cook: Take the entire executive staff at Apple for a ride in the Gulfstream. Fake your deaths in a tragic plane crash. Wait the requisite 15 minutes for Samsung to copy you and then say, “Hey, nope, all wrong. Sorry, we landed just fine. A-OK! Minor miscommunication. AT&T iPhone, you know (sheepish grin). But, seriously, thanks for your concern. Our hearts go out to our slavish copiers from South Korea.”
