    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.

    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.

    Umm, ok, why? Anyone else find it ironic that it was shot on an iPhone?

    What a whack job...no pun intended. About as useful a measure as a hunger strike, only one fool is affected by the demonstration.

    I did that an an anti-disco rally back in the 80's, but then I was making a great cultural contribution to our society.

    I just watched that. The damage from drops on carpeted floor from sitting position was troublesome. I was surprised that pouring coffee on it did not result in instant failure, but it held up during the shot. Holding it under the tap and washing it was just plain stupid. Dropping it screen-down on pavement cracked the screen. Who woulda thunk it?

    I really don't understand why people are doing that.. Destroying your iPad with a baseball bat? I really think that they are not in their right minds. How can anyone be so dumb wasting their money just to have seconds of attention.
