The iPhone is more than a phone, music player, interwebz vehicle, mini gaming console and social media launching pad. It is also technomagical. Don’t believe me? Try this…and be amazed:

2. Return to the homescreen.

What was the second of the several things I reaffirmed? Well, it involves Oprah Winfrey.

This quote from an unknown genius came to me by way of @Big0ak. (Thank you, sir.) Of course, I had to make it my own with a photo taken of me at the pinnacle of my marathon pain, AKA Mile 14. As odd as it may sound, I’m proud to be a special idiot.
