Eight Things Worse Than a Cracked Screen On Your Smartphone
In this fast-track world of ever-changing technology, there aren’t many guarantees to be had. Networks are unpredictable at best and devices can be buggier than a redneck’s bunghole.

1. The Facebook Mobile App Because let’s face it, we would rather stare at an intricate cobweb of glass shards than get our hopes up one more time that this steaming turd of an app might actually function long enough to load all those someecards and sonogram pics.
