Submission + - Jeff Bezos Wants To Put an Airbag In Your iPhone

theodp writes: Don't want to pay Apple $199 to repair the cracked screen of the $199 iPhone you dropped? Neither, apparently, does Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

Let's hope there's an API — those gas cartridges could be a game-changer for fart apps!
