    I was driving down the street one day when I noticed an ipad lying on the ground. I stopped the car and found this :(

    Looks like the poor guy got run over by a car.

    Anyone want to buy it? Might be good for a prank. Borrow someones ipad, return them this :D

    Might I suggest that you are a good citizen and return it to an Apple Store. They will be able to identify the owner from the serial number and, although they won't contact the owner for legal reasons, they will respond to a request from law enforcements agencies should the owner report it lost or stolen. Although it looks pretty damaged, some of the data - and maybe it's important or irreplaceable - might be recoverable.

    And think how good you'll feel for having performed such a noble deed.

    Looks like it is just the rear casing that is left - no data holding components remaining.
    You might want to resize your images - It looks like you have full resolution images posted up there - total overkill for a forum and will be why people are having issues not to mention bandwidth for anyone mobile. I would resize them to 800 pixels across at most.

    Resize your pics to something the iPad's poor little A4 can handle. :D

    Be careful? It isn't going to hurt your iPad. They just need to be resized ~

    It doesn't even look like there is a screen or logicboard.

    I know that, but if you have other apps running in the background with un-saved work then it could cause you a problem when the photos crash your pad as they did with mine - my own stupid fault for multi-tasking!

    I would venture to say the "guy" witnessed his IPAD hit pavement due to a vertical launch by his girlfriend / wife. I am not going to speculate why someone would do such a deed?
