Whoa! Now that we've evolved these tiny hands, like the T-Rex, they've gone and made the phones bigger. We're obsolete at age ten!

I'm sorry Mr. Gulliver, but I don't think you'll find replacement parts that big anywhere in Liliput OR Blefuscu. And I wouldn't want to bet on Brobdingnag's miniaturization skills, either. But we will consider a trade-in on a modified version of our new Crabapple 3, provided we can find a case for the 72-in widscreen.
