    More shocking then that is the fact that Lycos is still around and people use it.

    Only used it because the link I tried to use wasn't working on this site. Just was total accident I even used Lycos.

    I am amazed the phone didn't only still work, but only had a small scratch. You can see it fall for so long too!

    Yet they break all the time when people knock them off of their coffee tables...

    Right! Exactly what me and my coworker were talking about too Seen them break from pocket falls, but somehow this survived a 42 floor fall and we are baffled. Just the impact alone would bust most anything.

    Does the story say what sort of case it was in?

    I don't believe this story. Apple probably used a gopro, and just said it was on an iphone so people believe it's glass will survive anything more than a 6 inch drop onto concrete.
