iPad Blending

leave a comment »

Apple’s newest invention does everything…it even blends!

Does anyone else cringe when the see this? The iPad retails from $500 to $830 and one can only wonder if this 1 minute and 40 second Youtube clip was worth it.  The motives behind such a clip can perhaps provide an answer.

Sure the clip is comedic, from the cheesy music, to the game show background, and the older, scientist looking man with his black rimed glasses smashing and iPad and sticking it into a blender. However, could it serve as more than just a quick laugh? Perhaps it is a video of technology rebellion. It seems as if the iPad can do everything, but as host Tom Dickson proves, it is destructible and not almighty as Mac makes it seem.
