“Why is iPhone 6 prone to bending?” Jeremy Olshan reports for MarketWatch. “‘There are two possible explanations,’ Uri Geller, the psychic illusionist famous for bending spoons with his mind, told MarketWatch. ‘Either the phone is so seriously thin and flimsy that it is bendable with mere physical force, which I cannot believe given the extensive tests Apple would have done. Or — and this is far more plausible — somehow the energy and excitement of the 10 million people who purchased iPhones has awakened their mind powers and caused the phones to bend.'”

“Reached in England to discuss this psychic event, Geller, 67, suggested Apple make him a spokesman. ‘I urge Apple to hire me to explain to the world that this is not the company’s fault at all,’ he says,” Olshan reports. “The iPhone is hardly the only gadget that is psychically malleable, Geller says. ‘I’ve bent my old BlackBerrys before — I’ll send you a picture to prove it.'”

MacDailyNews Take: Mind-bending.

With it already being lampooned, this bit of iPhone FUD just doesn’t have legs.
