Bizarre: Alter Your Fingers For An iPhone

Now, we all come across crazy stories on the internet, but this one is just beyond bizarre to me. A Colorado man, Thomas Martel, went under the knife to alter his fingers so that he could improve his typing on his iPhone.

“From my old Treo, to my Blackberry, to this new iPhone, I had a hard time hitting the right buttons, and I always lost those little styluses”.

The technique is called “whittling” and consists of doctors making a small cut in each finger, then shaving off the bones and adjusting the muscles and fingernails to fit the new thumb size. Now tell me if this is not bizarre! Do you love your gadget that much to even consider this?
