Microsoft's 'Blue Screen of Death' appears on iPhone 5s

Everyone is familiar with the rivalry b/w Microsoft and Apple since the very first day of it.If the reports are to be believed,then
Microsoft's Infamous Blue Screen of Death (BSoD) is making a surprise appearance on Apple's new iPhone 5s.
The BSoD is an error screen associated with older versions of Windows and is displayed after the system has suffered an irrecoverable crash. However, Apple customers are now reporting the same screen appearing on their iPhones just before the device crashes and reboots.
The error has been reported on Apple’s support forum and over Twitter and appears to be only affecting the new iPhone 5s and Apple’s office suite, iWork.

User gauroavojha reported the error on 29 September, saying: “How do I resolve the blue screen error while using iWork on my iPhone 5s? When I use Pages, for example, and press home button to switch app, my iPhone restarts after a blue screen.”

The apparent fix is to turn off iWork’s sync with iCloud – a service that backs up documents and data – but doing so certainly reduces the functionality of the office suite.

Suing Apple for copying the BSOD would be trolling on the highest level!
