    Scary. According to the description, they are testing the insurance of Spanish retailer "Corte Inglés."

    Yeah, in the description it says it's an insurance scam, the guy is apparently hoping to get a new MBP out of it.

    And why would he expect them to replace his iBook with a MacBook Pro?

    I really only had 2 hopes after watching this:

    1 - The person perpetrating this pathetic little attempt at an insurance scam would be promptly electrocuted, despite his genius little dangling contraption...

    2 - The insurance company does not replace this computer

    Seeing as I have no evidence that (1) occurred, I now rest all my hopes on (2).

    What a waste of an iBook, especially as it seemed to be functioning.

    It's people like this who don't deserve a computer.

    Not only is there no evidence that (1) occurred, there was no possibility that it actually could... :rolleyes:

    If you think that wasting $800-1200 is a big deal, then you need to take a look around your daily life and society; this is nothing. People regularly throw away, waste, ruin, deface, lose, and gamble away amounts ten- and hundredfold this MacBook. Sure, it's sad, because I would have liked the MacBook... but then, I'd like the replacement MacBookPro, too.

    In any case, it was a really dumb video. He could have made it quicker and with more of a splash, or had it playing music or a video, or at least put some kind of funny music in the background like the Jeopardy song. Why has YouTube zapped people of all creativity? I'll shush, that's another discussion entirely. :)

    What's your point? It's still a juvenile and wasteful act, even if it's "only" a few hundred bucks.

    You're the one who needs to take a look around. Lots of people could benefit from a useful piece of equipment like this iBook, but unfortunately can't afford one.

    It's people who do things like this on purpose that must really annoy people who did something like this by accident.

    I'm sure I'd cry if this video brought back bad memories of a previous laptop doing some diving by accident.

    It hasn't zapped their creativity, but, rather, revealed their lack thereof.
