    I can imagine the photographer saying: “... Heh, my photo was just way too good for your phone.”

    That was a nice explanation. This shows how even the smallest bug in code can lead to loss of data!

    Excellent video, I love how you go through these issues like a detective would and can actually prove your theories. I also like that you're not afraid to admit when you're wrong. This was super fun to watch, love your videos!

    it really feels like there should be a failsafe where it removes the wallpaper back to default but I guess this problem never even crossed anyone's minds

    If this happened a decade ago, there would be creepypastas, news coverage, and a song parody.

    The original photographer and poster of that wallpaper just wanted to make his work prettier and pleasing to the eyes.

    Pretty darn amazing! But as a (now retired) systems programmer, I'm more than familiar with the headaches a single bit within a byte can cause!

    It just sends a shiver down your spine when you feel a program of software can actually make a hardware unusable

    As a software QA expert, I know for sure we would have never caught this bug.

    I learned more in this video about RGB colors than in my color classes. Great video! Thank you very much for the explanation :D
