Wired Senior Editor Destroys Cheap, Nasty Phone By Accident on Live TV

Wired's Nick Thompson just destroyed a Razr live on NBC's Today Show. Right in the middle of a segment where he was demonstrating the iPhone and Moto Razr, the latter slipped like butter from his hands. It hit the floor with a sharp plastic clatter and was then seen to be completely buggered.

So, folks, for Christ's sake buy a Razr: it's made of freakin' sugar.

I think it was a Razr, anyway. Either way, Nick, you rule. And I wish I taped The Today Show. Since this post isn't even remotely funny without video, could someone who did oblige?

Update: Gizmodo obliges. Unfortunately, the Razr lives, writes Thompson in a write-up at Wired's Gadget Lab.
