Am I the only person who finds these videos distasteful ? A pure testament of a wasteful culture, that serves no purpose. How is breaking something, entertaining ? We used to just call it vandalism.

It's a very cheap way of advertising their blenders.

It gets them loads of publicity and web hits because they are blending the latest newsworthy products. It would cost a fortune to get that exposure using traditional advertising methods.

I too dislike these, but was intrigued. The so called "flimsy back" on the S3 lasted quite some time.

The only reason the s3 lasted longer is due to its larger size the blades had more trouble grabbing it.

I always watch them and fear for his health. Heaven knows what is in that dust whenever he opens the blender to tip it on the table.

It's not vandalism if they're doing it to their own stuff. Deep down many people get a sense of satisfaction watching expensive things being destroyed, I know I do.

I can ask this same question about them choosing to treat their stuff how they want.

Nope, the S3 lasted longer because it is the best phone on the planet and made from an indestructable substance. Not even Chuck Norris could blend it with his fists.

Treating their stuff how they want doesn't make it any less meritless, distasteful or wasteful, but if that's what they want to do in their own private world, fair enough and I have no objection to that.

This changes when they are putting in on the internet and having people post links to it as if it was something worth sharing with the world, worth being proud of, at that point it means that I am entitled to say i'm disgusted by how utterly redundant and moribund it is.

This is a Mac forum, not just an iphone forum, and where I have posted is in the "Alternatives to iOS and iOS devices"

MacRumors. Even more so - this is in the alternatives board, and all topics show up in "New Posts".

I mean I'm just fine with iOS and all (since I make stuff for it!) but I don't know why you guys think it's wrong for android users to come here. I myself have an Android phone (although I'm fairly neutral, believe it or not!) and I've been using Macs since 2001. Just because people might find something funny, or not be a huge fan of the iPhone doesn't mean they're trolls.

Also: These threads are a LOT better than the "I got a tiny 0.1mm nick on my last 6 iPhone 5s and now Apple won't let me exchange it anymore!" threads. Surprisingly, the bigger iOS fans tend to be quite critical of Apple, just in a different way.

It wasn't about the blades grabbing. Look at the slow mo vid. It's clear that it's the force of the blades that broke the iPhone first.

Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean." They make their OS iterations in alphabetical order named after desserts/candy. Kind of like cats with Mac OS.

This is probably a cheaper advertising campaign than wasting money on ads or billboards. As for people mentioning they're "wasting" these products: You know that it's actually pumping money into the economy when you buy something, right? Spend money to make money.

I loves the video and was impressed at how long the s3 hopped around. Just because its plastic doesn't mean it's bad.

Its not about wasting its about being 'wasteful' and fostering that as a concept and culture. BIG Difference....

off topic I know, but must admit that I did enjoy Casino Royale, but honestly thought Quantum of Solace was pretentious diatribe, lacking depth, soul and any nuances to character Daniel Craig brought to the role in the first place (and I don't mean his constant inclination to pout at the camera like a fish coming up for air) ;-) Didn't like any of the previous bonds either though.

As for Myth Busters, well that's Discovery Channel and I don't have that channel, or any satellite channels. I don't watch too much TV tbh, but when I do its usually dramas like Sherlock, Downton Abbey & occasional Mrs. Brown's Boys / Fr. Ted for comedy etc.

Can you provide a link to that benchmark? Serious question, I'd really like to see it.
