    In unrelated news, a hammer to the head will also cause cranial fracture.

    Wow. I understand why water would be damaging to an iPhone, what I didn't know was that lasers where damaging too. I mean if you are going to the extremes of pointing concentrated laser beam, any devices would break.

    Talk about stress testing.

    I'm not sure what worries me more - the amount of pleasure that this guy gets out of, uh, "torturing" an iPhone or the fact that it is apparently news that water can indeed ruin an electronic device.

    Some of the things that happen when you have more money than you need.

    Lasers are interesting, though.

    Absolute lie. It's not written in this blog so it's untrue.

    Fact: A laser is also harmful to the Samsung Galaxy.

    Now that they've already broken it, they should see if it's bullet proof. It would be nice to know that if I had iPhone5 in my pocket and some gangsta shot me in my pocket, I wouldn't die.

    While this is kind of a no brainer, it's cool to see how it held up. If you look the screen was actually still turning on after the lasers had their way with it. I think they could have given the iPhone more of a chance with the water, especially if they waited longer. This is really good considering most iPhone's are submerged for less than 15 seconds and when the owner takes the phone out of the water they're more likely to turn it off right away than see if it still works. : P

    :)

    I'm also sure it wouldn't handle being in water as well.

    it's not a bebe gun either. It's a Taurus Judge with a 4/10 shotgun shell in it.

    Really does not make me want to buy their flashlight. I can't be the only one who will temporarily put a flashlight that is turned on face down on a table, why would I want something that would set said table on fire!? Heat in lighting = inefficiency, that thing much eat batteries in addition to being a fire hazard.

    Only when a sniper's laser-sight moves across your iPhone to your forehead.

    I'm just curious as to who wasted an upgrade with their mobile carrier to buy an iphone to destroy.
