    As of another report today on this site, another strange and stupid way to get rid of an iPad is to trade it in for an MS tablet!

  • Funny chatroulette troll

    One guy convinced a random person on Chatroulette that you could charge an iPhone 4 in one minute by putting it in the microwave. The idiot actually tried it. It was hilarious.

  • Apple has found its own way

    The best way to destroy an iPhone is to make them candy colored.

    • It is even simpler than that.

      I found the easiest way to destroy my iPad is to update to the latest iOS version. Safari is one beasty crashing monster these days.

    • Seriously

      Every sh*tty site showing "10 worst tattoos" or "25 bread products that look like Jesus" has either a better gallery or at least a way you can see all the items on one page. ZDNet should seriously look into this.

  • just use it

    like most of the igeneration does. Use it to babysit your kid. I'll bet a lot of them are trashed that way.

  • Being pedantic here...

    I've noticed that ZDNet writers have a habit of replacing the ampersand (&) with a comma - e.g. in the title '... iPhone, iPad'. Why? It looks silly and uneducated.

  • Way too much time

    Some people have way too much time on their hands. I was three pix into this when I thought, GOT BETTER THINGS TO DO WITH MY TIME THAN LOOK AT THE REST OF THEM. Ok, well, I did waste time commenting on this useless post.
