In about a week, these guys have collected $375 in donations to go into an Apple Store, buy an iPod, and smash it then and there on video tape:

They only need $25 more, but I know that Apple Stores general prohibit photographing, even if you buy a camera there, so this might be an interesting scene.

Some of the fan/hate mail is funny, too.

That's disturbing... people have way too much money to burn. :(

Any financially-minded or charitable person won't do this. What's the target audience? Psychopaths and Apple haters?

does anyone know of a 'trade-in' site for which I could trade in my 60B iPod Photo for a new 5th Gen Video?

Personally I think that's awesome!

I really want to see what all the people do... I love seeing people's reactions to those type of things.

It's sort of a stupid idea, though. Apple gets the money, you get nothing if you donate, and the guy doesn't lose or gain anything. This is probably being done to see reactions (sort of an intensified troll).

I just checked back with this site (because I am just that bored with myself). Anyways, these guys have a posted video of smashing an iPod Nano at the Yorkdale Apple Store (Toronto, Canada):

http://www.planetbor.../smi_videos.php

Man, these guys are pathetic. I had some hope for a good show and perhaps the lead was going to go to work on the iPod with his cane, but forget it. I mean, almost nobody in the store even notices the smashing.

Then I read down that they largely failed to capture their first iPod smashing attempt do to technical problems with the their cameras. What losers...

The power of the dark side, it is.

Destruction is the power of the weak minded!

I remember their first smashing attempt. The guy was kicking it on the floor and snorting as he laughed. Really pathetic. Then, when it didn't break, he later smashed it with a sledge hammer on concrete.

Point being.... what? I mean anything would've broken if you friggin hit it with a slege-hammer. Retards. That doesn't prove the iPod is fragile.

The guy has no friends and has to laugh at his own actions when nobody else cares. More like maniacal laughing in his squeeky little high-pitched voice. It almost sounds like he gets all excited when he uses a curse word or two. Most people pass that phase after they turn 14. Sad...

"It can't even stand being bent in half" lmao. Can anything?

Smash my Xbox 360
LOL

I can just imagine the people in line, when mean little timmy with the trenchcoat walks out in front of them, says "This is the last one" and smashes it with a sledgehammer.

Alas, Xbox 360 is now plentiful and no one cares...

What I'd pay good money for is to see someone go into the apple store, buy an Imac, take it outside, open it up, smash it with a sledgehammer and then try to get warranty coverage or a refund.

"Hey, I just bought this imac 5 minutes ago... it seems to be defective"

iPods are stupid pieces of junk that you pay $400 for instead of just buying a $200 iriver.

That being said: There are tons of iPods. Who cares if someone destroys one.

You gotta destroy something that people freak out about.

Like having a big bag of $100 bills that you burn in front of people.

or, smashmyvangogt.com

or, smashmyferrari.com

or, smashmykitten.com.

that was just a joke, but it might be fun to have a realistic kitten toy that you kill in the middle of a crowd to freak everyone out.

Maybe they're just trying to use the Ipod fix where you slam it onto the ground... :P No really, it's a documented fix.
