    Remember the guys that shot the iPad with a shotgun (here)? Well, they are at it again, this time with an iPad 2. Thanks to Matt G. for the link!

    He should bring it in to the apple store and ask for a replacement.

    I'm surprised by the amount of magic smoke in the iPad.

    At the same time, I guess that explains everything.

    That's the battery chemistry. It's not lihium ion. The new battery is lithium polymer which is very reactive and explosive/flammable when dented or punctured. Ipad users better be careful.

    these videos always annoy me... instead of "oohh look we can waste $500" why can't they donate it to the red cross or something?

    Because it's THEIR money. Why don't you donate $500 every time you see one of these videos?

    Would you have watched their commercial had it just said, " we donated $500 to the ARC?"

    I highly doubt it would have made the front page of [H].


    $500 well spent.

    Lots of companies waste much more than $500 on crappy ad agencies that don't give them half of what they're getting out of this.

    If they didn't spend $500 on this, they would be spending $10,000 that couldn't goto the Red Cross on an ad agency ad that doesn't even provide the same amount of exposure.

    Assume too much? I'd like him just as much if he shot an HP Slate or EP121. I just like the wanton destruction.

    Funny how it was trying to burst into flames after the slug, and then put down with the buck shot.

    If you watched the end of the video, it's a promotion for their company. So it could be $500 well spent in return for customers visiting their website.

    LOL, I mistakenly read the title as "Ipad 2 meets Shogun..." which made me think Shogun 2: Total War and just for that brief moment of existence I wanted to own an iPad.
