    I'm still trying to figure out the purpose of these retarded stunts. Maybe the baseball bat should be turned on the heads of the people using them to knock some sense into them.

    Moronic asses.

    yeah, some dude did it with the ps3 when it came out and the xbox360, basically they pay 500 bucks to get views on YT..

    but Im amazed at how tough the ipad is, thru all that bashing it held up pretty good, especially the back of it..

    I was going to say, on the whole, I think it did a pretty damn good job overall. They probably helped it more than hurt it. ROFL

    Seeing these little twerps is indicative of the Johnny Knoxville, Jackass generation. I'll admit I watched the show for awhile too, but never thought about doing anything this stupid.

    After dropping it and repeatedly striking it, those clowns express contempt that the iPad is broken. I'll bet that there isn't a double-digit IQ amongst them.

    Looks like a bunch of Best buy employees outside of a store. I would bet it was a dead iPad already.

    I don't think there is much a Best Buy employee can do in that respect....

    There's more than two, I think. Hence, 'amongst'. I'm a little old-fashioned, but still nearly literate:)

    I seen the blend video,

    He really does smash it, but I don't thimk it actually was the iPad that turns into a pile of gray rubble.. I don't think any blender can do that to the iPad.

    idiots, I kept hoping a shard of glass or metal would shoot out and stick into one of them.

    As for how it held up... The ipad was dead after the first drop. glass front stayed together, couldn't see the LCD damage due to it not being operational, back panel is very easy to dent you dont need a bat to do that.

    as for the bestbuy employee's being idiots... a lot of them are but there are some that are really great and know their stuff. I used to work at bestbuy and it was a lot of fun most of the time.

    i luv best buy employess and some chicks are actually hot..

    anyway, back to the subject, uhmm, i dont see why these idiots never turned it on and it would be neat to see exactly when the ipad would have turned off during the abuse..

    anyway, proll a lemon or dead weight ...
