crack! but iPhone lives

iPhone lives!Friday morning I was riding on a flat road, daydreaming (I guess), suddenly realized I was about to run over my friend, slammed on my brakes, swerved, and boom! went tumbling along the road.  I was fine (well, a sore butt and some scratches) and my bike was fine, but I landed on my iPhone.  Crack!

What's weird is that yeah, the glass is all cracked, but the iPhone lives! everything still works including the touchscreen including along the cracked edge.  Pretty amazing.  I used the phone all day yesterday on my ride, the camera was fine.

I'm going to have to replace the glass, but how amazing is it that the phone still works?
