    It lasted longer than I would have thought it would. But the question still stands...why?

    For attention I guess. It did hold up well. I hope it was the base model :)

    I hope the census workers count this bunch. They will no doubt need our welfare dollars all their natural selection lives.

    No country for old men called them the dismal tide.

    I call them useless eaters.

    Although a bit uncomfortable to watch it shows how well built this thing is. It never flew apart. Tough ipad!

    This world is dominated by angry haters. That savageness is legendary and prevalent in the uncontrolled hormonal youth, the invincible mindset. The difference between building and destroying is not clear, not defined. Things of beauty, life; nothing is sacred, nothing is spared. Violence rules casually, without meaning, for no reason if not only to impress...

    There are a few different groups that do this with newly released tech products.

    I saw the same thing done to a wii and ps3 on launch day.

    Don't know about these guys, but the ps3 and wii were bought with donations for the specific purpose of smashing them

    I saw a PC magazine stress test on the ipad where they destroyed it too...
    but at least they did useful tests... h2o etc...
    They did use a nail on the front screen & surprisingly the screen was very resistant, but the backside scratched badly.
