Whoops: This morning, Joan Rivers appeared to hawk the iPhone 6 from beyond the grave. An Instagram photo of an older-model iPhone appeared, ever so briefly, on Rivers' Facebook page, along with the caption, "This badass is being replaced by an iPhone 6 (not the fat one). I got this one in 2010, and after 4 years, my only complaint is that apps are now designed for bigger screens, and the battery is getting tired. Never had a case for it, since it was most beautiful on its own. Great achievement in design. Great product." TMZ, which got a screenshot, theorizes the post was "a pre-negotiated deal with Apple" and that someone scheduled it to appear on Facebook and then forgot about it. (More Joan Rivers stories.)
