iPhone in a 1937 painting - and in an 1860 painting. And 1918.


Image cropped for size from the original at Vice's Motherboard, where the painting is discussed.

Reposted to add this image (cropped for emphasis) from “The Expected One,” an 1860 work by Austrian painter Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller:


Discussed (and explained) at Vice's Motherboard.

Source image for the 1860 painting.

Addendum:
I found this man, texting his friends -

Ivan Vladimirov: On the streets of Petrograd, 1918

- in a post about the October Revolution in Poemas del Rio Wang.

  4. I don't know, but those guys on the right in that first painting makes me worry about the advent of iWaterboard. Luckily, Apple's the one company that wouldn't want to make money on such a contraption.
