Must be nice to just have extra cash.

Could they not have found something more useful to spend $500 (at a minimum) on?

Sad really. What are ose kids, like 15 years old? How do they have $500 to just throw away like that?

I feel bad for them when they actually have to go out and earn money/pay bills someday. Hope they have trust funds.

I think the funny part is all the bestbuy employees out there filming in on their iPhones...lol

More $$$ than sense, but that's what makes the world go round.

They probably purchased the best buy black tie protection plan, and will go back in the store and say "sorry I accidentally dropped it"

Wow, that sucker is incredibly resilient. If anything, this has inspired confidence in the build quality and I won't have to baby it as much as I figured I might.

There's a group of guys that did this with an iPod and Xbox 360. It was funny because they smashed both in front of lots of people and they all freaked out, especially on release day of the Xbox 360. Lemme see if I can dig up the video.

Edit: Not quite as many people as I remember, but here's the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e26F6nkv5B0

First ones in line and there was still a line when they walked out. Smashed it right there in the parking lot, you could see people still in line yelling. Lemme see if I can dig up the video.



I think someone on Youtube did that back when the first iPhone was released, Instead I think they put it in a blender.

And here's that iphone in a blender link.
YouTube - Will It Blend? - iPhone (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qg1ckCkm8YI)

Mind you this guy has blended almost everything imaginable. If you can think of it, he's blended it.

Those guys could have been hurt by an exploding battery. They should consider themselves lucky, but they are probably too stupid to realize that.

I guess some people will never grow up. Waste of $500. I am all for having fun but wasting $$$ to me is not fun.

I would own an iPad today if I had the $$$ to purchase one. Oh well!

Goes to show how resilient it is though as they are having trouble *DESTROYING* it ......

So so pointless. So many other things that you could do with $500, like help others.

People do these things with all the top electronic products..

I've seen PS3's, 360's, laptops, etc..

In fact, this one guy bought a PS3 on launch, took it outside of the Best Buy he bought it from and smashed ti with a sledge hammer in front of everybody else who was standing in line waiting for theirs.. Imagine if you're the first guy to get told "Sorry, we're sold out" after waiting in line for hours knowing that the guy who bought it only to smash it took yours..

Even so, the PS3 did not give in too easily to the sledge hammer. That thing is built like a little tank.

But yeah, these vids are all over Youtube.

Just in case anyone else is tempted to smash a brand new iPad up, I can supply my address :)

Would have been better to help a family in need with the cash.

So they can post you the remains of their smashed up ipad?

reminds me of the time when a guy smashed his PS3 with a sledge hammer immediately after purchasing it

But i believe that guy didn't have to actually pay for it since he created a website and received donations to buy the ps3 for the stunt

It's sad when people have to revert to destroying things such as this in order to get a quick 15 minutes of fame, especially when there are so many people who would love to own and use such things but might not be able to afford them.

Some people have more money than sense!

Kids these days…they just keep on getting more stupid as the days go on! That iPad took that baseball bat to the face like a real man…like a champ! Those wussies swing like…umm…can't say it on here! That ipad seemed real tough if you ask me!

Yeah, they were swinging the bat kind of, um.. soft..

Sad thing is these same kids are probably the type that go on the blogs and complain that the iPad sucks and say it's a waste of money to buy one.

"Lets show them all by getting one and smashing it!"

"brilliant!"

wow, to be young and have expendable income. If they were my children, I'd beat the mess out of them for being so stupid... Please parents of America, beat your kids more often so this kind of stuff doesn't happen anymore.
