Rafael Dymek knew Apple wouldn't be releasing a Smart Mirror anytime soon, so he decided to create his own, based on the company's iOS 10 software. Simply put, this is as close as you'll get to a giant wall-mounted iPhone. "Design includes the time and date in the upper right hand corner and weather in the top left. All apps can be moved around and placed anywhere on the mirror. After 45 seconds of inactivity the mirror goes to sleep (appears as any ordinary mirror), simply tap anywhere to wake back up and resume use. Some useful things you can do with this mirror: Request an Uber, watch Netflix, read the news, control smart thermostat / light bulbs, control Sonos speaker system, and more," said Dymek.

"I'm going to go the 148th floor and frickin' drop test the iPhone 7 Plus. Security is 24/7 and I may not find this phone at all," said the vlogger. After the stunt, he tried tracking the device using "Find My iPhone", but apparently, it sustained enough damage to not register at all when pinged.

One person from China spotted an iPhone 7 deal that seemed too good to be true, and it most certainly was. Instead of the latest iPhone, this person received an iPhone 3, iPhone 4 and a Yu-Gi-Oh Fusion Monster card.
