Dropping your phone is especially gut-wrenching when you drop it in a river that goes along the east side of Manhattan in New York City. When you are a video blogger like Casey Neistat, you depend on that phone for your livelihood. Fortunately, he had an old phone stashed away for a quick replacement.
What could have been a cool time-lapse video sequence via an iPhone is now lost. When one day someone comes along to dredge up the riverbed he may find all those dropped phones. But by then they will look like ancient relics of the past.
