Scare your Friends with iBrokeWM
There are already similar apps for the iPhone and for Android, but this is the first of its kind I’ve seen for Windows Mobile. iBrokeWM, created by XDA member Corwin9S, is a small and fun application that gives a Windows Phone the appearance of being heart-breakingly wrecked. The app simply places an overlay on the display and makes it look like smashed glass.
Using the app you can have hours of fun watching your HD2-owning friends squirm as they return to the room to find that their shiny, expensive love affair has been completely destroyed in their absence. Rather than apologising, you can then quickly close the application and claim that they should be thanking you for teaching them the importance of a decent screen protector.
The application is currently only available in French, but as the user interface includes little text, this should not be a major problem. It should work for any Windows Mobile-running device with a screen resolution of WQVGA or higher.
The app and information about it can be found in the application thread.

It's a slippery slope...
