    Russia has constructed a giant iPhone the height of a man, to pay tribute to the late co-founder of Apple, Steve Jobs. The monument has an interactive touch screen, high-resolution photographs, videos of speeches and quotations from Jobs.

    The 1.9m monument to the Apple CEO, who died in 2011 after a long battle with cancer, can be found in St Petersburg, the tech capital of Russia. It’s on view at the National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics, whose students hold the record of being the only four-time World Champions in programming.

    The giant iPhone provides free Wifi to visitors, while the camera installed in it makes pictures of Job’s fans, synchronizing them with their accounts in social networking websites.

    The device has been designed to survive the Russian winter, and doesn’t freeze up even when the temperatures drops to minus 30 degrees Celsius.

    They could have designed it better. Good idea though.

    That's neat. Now some crazy russian is going to hi-jack it.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    that's a really cool idea, people will be taking pictures of them standing next to a giant iPhone with their iPhones
