This week, CBC has a new story about the iPhone and the lives of two BC snowboarders.
A pair of snowboarders were rescued off of Cypress Mountain and are crediting an iPhone with saving their lives. The pair used an iPhone to both call for help and to provide their exact location to rescue teams via a GPS app.
