Kid Smashes Brand New Out-Of-Box iPad

Submitted by: kitkatve 6 years ago Tech

Apparently, he took it out seconds after he walked out of the electronics store he bought it from and destroyed it. Why?

People are getting all homosexual around here cause these kids did what they wanted to with their ipad. If they spent $400 on bubble gum and and hemroid cream whats it to you? And as a side note he more then likely bought the insurance on it walked right inside and got it replaced. And before you go flapping your wang sucker. The sales pitch that they give for the insurance is always something like if anything happens and they probably videotaped them saying that as well. So im sure they got another one for free.

I`m unemployed and losing my home. I really could`ve used $400 today. I hope next time Apple comes out with a new product, these guys will donate thier extra "throw away money" to a worthy cause instead of helping Steve Jobs get richer.

I got no problem with this. Apple got paid. Someone got paid to assemble this. Economy got some help. Idiots are out a few hundred dollars and they obviously weren`t investing that money into their own companies/products because they don`t have any. So everything is fine in my book.

@someshoes if one of your videos has enough views on youtube which this one clearly does you can become a youtube partner and make money from the ads they place
they`re video auto plays on their youtube page which I`m pretty sure means they are partners

This is some bat crap crazy stuff. Idiots made their point only after making Apple a couple hundred dollars richer. Worst of it is that these aren`t the only fools giving their money away for 15 seconds (or however long the video was) of fame.

Dumbasses.

you would only see this done ti an i product or notebook. 2 worst creations of all time. That was at best buy, would be funny if the worker that was there took it in and exchanged it for a new one. here you go mac. enjoy your piece of crap product.

Why is it, everytime a new expensive, long awaited, overly-hyped, expensive tech item comes out, there is always a few videos of people rushing to buy it on the first day, and destroy it?

I saw videos for PS2, Nintendo Wii, XBox360, Ipod, Ipad, Iphone, PS3, Zune, Nintendo DS....like seriously... I know destruction is fun... But what compels these people to buy it, only to destroy it in front of other people who will only think "wow, what a bunch of idiots"

It doesn`t offend anyone, so there`s no real shock value, other than Apple nerds/sheep who bury their dead Ipods.

Why are people getting bent out of shape over this ?

They couldv`e (insert benevolent cause here)
They should`ve (insert alternate way to waste $600)

Hey, You are not them and you aren`t their parents. Who are you to be judging them based solely on this ? Maybe someone put them up to this for money. Maybe they did it to protest against consumerism. Maybe they did it to protest against Apple or Steve Jobs. For what ever reason, It`s silly to judge people based on one video.

Chill out folx, It`s not the end of the world.

90% of the comments here are people getting trolled.

Because that is exactly what they wanted.

Rich Kids - They want attention, they are sick of browsing 4chan. Donating money to charity doesn`t give them attention. 1 Million youtube videos and counting will give them a bigger epeen or 8=====D as some would say.

Call them idiots for blowing $500 on a piece of tech and then destroying it, they don`t care. Every view they get makes them stronger. Repost this on cracked and all those other sites and BAM. Got another party boy corey (from aust).

You know, since they apparently have money, I don`t see why they didn`t just buy the whole stock from an apple store, then destroy them all.

I never understood why people would do this. They`re not making any statement whatsoever. Hooray for you, you spent $500+ on a product, just to go outside and smash it. It accomplished nothing. Apple got there money. Now, if it had been given to them by Apple, or they stole it, them kudos to them.

Because it was made by Macintrash. For publicity or not, it`s something I`d do as well.

Only I woulda hit it a little harder than that.

Actually, it withstood the blows pretty darn well for a piece of hardware.

Try doing that with a normal laptop or tablet pc and see how well it holds compared to that.

Not that I care though. I`ll stick to my complex OS(s) with more potential.

If they wanted to give away 600-1000 dollars, I know of lots of charities that could use that.

I love how people are going.. OMG! How Stupid!

It`s not as if it`s a one of a kind piece of art, or even a 65" big screen HDTV. Ok, Maybe it was a waste of money on their part but so what ? They got some enjoyment out of it.

In a few years these type of devices will be everywhere and they will even be faster and cheaper to boot. The hype Apple makes about it`s products is overblown and they are made by teenage girls in China getting paid a dollar a day.

"so what people already put it in a blender too... no big deal"

the difference is these are punk kids who clearly didn`t earn the money for the item. the people who blended it did it for a promotion to sell their blenders and I`m sure they sold at least 2 blenders from that video alone which pays off the ipad cost. as was said, these kids are just being attention whores since they don`t get it from their parents (hence why they can spend $500+ and throw it immediately away)

this happens everytime something gets released. its retarded kids who think it hurts those waiting in line, much like the kids who spoiled the harry potter books, or smashed Xbox360`s.

as others have said, these guys didn`t earn the money, they do it because they can. I hope their parents beat them each with that same bat, but I bet most of the parents just shook their heads and walked away if they even noticed..
