Well, whaddya know – Apple failed to deliver the iPhone 5 that every tech geek was waiting on tenterhooks for. Naturally, vast swathes of people were on the internet within seconds of Apple’s announcement of the iPhone 4S to register their disgust that this wasn’t the widely-anticipated hover phone with ESP functionality that they hoped the iPhone 5 was going to be.

Cue a global rash of frustrated individuals reduced to standing on street corners, disagreeing with their own mobile phones in increasingly agitated tones about whether or not they meant to say “Text Morgan” or “Get some more gum”.
