It seems like just about every brand out there is trying to take advantage of Apple’s nightmare! Recent reports indicate that the new iPhone is prone to bending! Apple says only 9 people have reported their iPhones being bent but a quick search on Twitter says otherwise. Nonetheless that is big problem for Apple.
The first company to take a jab at Apple was, of course, Samsung!

Even Nokia jumped on the bandwagon!
But it wasn’t just technology companies, here are some non-techies taking advantage of #bendgate.
