    YouTube outrage as thousands watch brand new iPad getting smashed by a baseball bat

    A VIDEO of a group of teenagers destroying a brand new iPad computer with a baseball bat has gone viral on YouTube.

    The video of the smashing of the $US500 ($545) device outside a Best Buy store in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Saturday has attracted more than 280,000 views on the video-sharing site.

    The Los Angeles Times caught up with Justin Kockott, the 19-year-old high school student who made the video titled Brand new iPad getting smashed by a baseball bat.

    "I wanted to be the first one to do it before other people did it," Kockott told the newspaper.

    "It was just something to do.

    "I knew some people would hate it, but I didn't think that many people would hate it," he said.

    "A lot of people are leaving really bad comments (in the YouTube comments section)."

    Kockott told the Times he did not have anything against Apple and had actually bought two other iPads.

    "I do not at all hate Apple. I love Apple, actually," he said.

    Apple said that it sold more than 300,000 iPads on the first day of availability on Saturday.

    Its more of a tradition nowadays, some guy queued up for the PS3 when it came out only to sledgehammer it in front of the people in the queue

    it's really silly, buying an expensive system to smash it

    the PS tards seem to be as lame as the Mactards, perfect example of what's wrong with a society obsessed with meaningless possession

    Well it passed the 1.5 metre horizontal drop test but failed the idiot test.

    Quite a sturdy unit in my opinion!

    Cheap and shabby compared to the KLFs artistic act of nihilation.

    The money represented virtually all their wealth from their music career.

    I believe their wealth was about 6 million between the two at the time.

    Also believe the rest wasn't invested all that wisely either.

    They should try to blend one of their blenders. That would be cool.

    A pointless piece of equipment bought by consumer cows that will at some point wish to smash the thing up themselves
    and then smash their own head in with a sledgehammer for buying it.

    A computer without a keyboard..? A $500 picture frame..?

    A lot of people said similar things about the iPhone and even the iPod.

    Personally I don't see how an iPad would be of much use to me, I might get one for fun but I can't see what I'd use it for except watching films on a plane or something. I don't have an iPhone (wifey does though, and loves it), but given Apple's skills and the incredibly successful App Store it would be a mistake to write the iPad off this early in the game. If anybody can make tablet computing a mass-market must-have it will be Apple.

    I'm looking forward to playing with one when they get here though.

    Could have sent 500$ worth of flowers and toys to the nearest hospital instead.
