    Classic exmaple that art is an expensive waste of someones time. Oh, and mine for having looked at this shit.

    They focused on Apple products because the stuff Microsoft makes is a whole lot tougher, It may not be as advanced or efficient but I'll take my Zune over a train any day.

      So…. you use an admittedly inferior product because you believe it can withstand being run over by a train? Why don't you test that theory…. Personally I just try not to leave my iPod on a train track..

    • Joe

      Case in point…the Xbox 360? I've been through 3 of those things. Anyone else?

      Think the same would be true if Apple made it? Doubt it! I think it's fair to say more MS products are crap vs Apple's.

      You do know they makes cases for the reason right? Dropped my iphone down 9 flights of metal stairs. no harm done. just get an otter box.

  • stafferty

    I don't know art but I know what I like. Mindless destruction of other people's expensive items with tools, locomotives and small arms is appearently something I really like.

    I've shot a phone before. It was only a crappy LG Razr though. Damn thing kept turning off for no reason. It was sooooooo therapeutic to kill it with my 30 0 6. 🙂

      Probably you're referring to a Motorola Razr ???

    Looks like an expensive habit

  • fasterthanu

    not the ipod!

  • sfmountainbiker

    Is the iPad in #11 still working even after being blowtorched to death? So much for the comment that MS products are more resiliant. Look at that thing!

    • Dave

      Does it look like it still works?

      • Mcardle

        eh where the screen isn't burnt it does. Dumbass

        • Andherson Dasilva

          pixel burn? (sarcasm)

  • BloodScrubber

    Senseless, yes. Theraputic…yes. Now lets go deface a rotary phone somwhere….

  • spaceboi

    Pure therapy for the soul.

  • Catence

    Incredibly expensive, but actually kind of beautiful.

  • Jimmy B

    Chive, I noticed something strange in this post. By your description you seem to be somewhat anti Apple. I have no problem with that, to each his own. However, I noticed in your Printing Our Facebook Friends post it appears at least two of you use MacBooks. Whats the deal?

  • Viper

    Coming from me, an apple supporter (not a fanatic by any stretch though), this is pretty awesome, haha.

  • Evan Wilkinson

    I bet the blowtorch one stank to high heaven.

  • Stupendiferous.

    um art? really? that's funny i was under the mistaken impression broken electronics was junk. glad i have been shown otherwise… fail.

  • scooter

    I can hear the fanboys cry.

  • I Like Turtles

    What about Steve Jobs?

  • Coldzilla

    And the word WHY comes forth once again………..

    This is what a high unemployment rate can do to people…
