HTC Tilt versus a lawnmower

If I were a smartphone, this is how I'd want to go out. Not left forgotten in the back of a closet somewhere. Not dumped into one of those cell phone recycling boxes. Not drowned in a pool (or worse, toilet), dead on the inside while looking mostly unscathed on the outside.

No, I'd want to be chewed up and spit out by a John Deere.
