Oops, my iPhone just sent a photo of my man parts!

Apple support thread outs pesky bug that allegedly sends attachments, but will it save a marriage?

The iPhone is far from perfect, despite what the fanboys claim. Don't get me wrong, it's very, very good. But it has some glitches that still need to be worked out, like the dropped calls some users experience, the lack of copy and paste , and that weird bug where it takes a photograph of your crotch and e-mails it to a woman.

That, anyway, is what seems to be behind the situation in this amusing thread on the official Apple forums. A woman says she found an e-mail on her husband's iPhone with a picture of his, um, stuff attached that he'd apparently sent to another woman. The man is blaming a glitch. What's odd, though, is that other iPhone users are backing him up.

I've never heard of pictures automatically attaching themselves to e-mails sent from the iPhone. Perhaps this is just someone's idea of a joke, and the Apple support community bit the troll hard. But now, as an iPhone user, I have to wonder: has my fancy handheld been sending pictures of my parts to my friends, family, and co-workers? Have any of you Cravers ever heard of this problem?
