  • iPad Insurance Covers Vandalism, But Not Nuclear War
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGUppxoJUVg&feature=player_embedded]YouTube - Brand new ipad getting smashed by a baseball bat[/ame]


    Suppose you get a new iPad and it's stolen by a bunch of hooligans who want to destroy it - but can't think of a more creative way to trash it than dropping it and hitting it with a baseball bat - and videoing it to put on YouTube - but can't manage to hold the camera steady on the destruction? Or suppose you are having a beer while watching a video on your new iPad, and you see something funny and spit all of your refreshing beverage out on the shiny ten-inch screen? What will you do?

    Fortunately, there is already a third-party insurer who has stepped forth with a solution. For as little as $45 a year, the Worth Ave Group will guarantee your new iPad against many things that AppleCare will not, including theft, screen damage due to dropping (or batting), fire, flood, and even surges from lightning strikes. For a top of the line 64GB iPad with 3G, the premium goes up to $82 a year.

    The policy has a $50 deductible, and they will cover any damage above that amount. The company warns, however, that they won't pay you if your iPad just mysteriously disappears (meaning something other than it being stolen), mechanical or electrical breakdown, normal wear or tear, rust, government seizure or nuclear war. I'm thinking you'd have more to worry about if stuff just starts flat disappearing at your house, you're in trouble with the government or al-Qaeda nukes your hometown, but it's good to read the fine print.

      Seriously, if kids had done this to something that relatively expensive 20 years ago? ****, parents would have beat their ***. This is just a bunch of spoiled brats thinking they are cool. Enjoy your 15 seconds of fame.

      I don't know if this is the same bunch of guys but I know where was a group for the Wii, PS3 and Xbox 360 they had websites up with a donation tracker and people would donate for these idiots to stay up all night on launch night, buy the new console then destroy it in front of the store. I highly doubt ANY of the money used to purchase that iPad was their own. Still idiots though.

      I personally hate those guys. I want the iPad so badly, and those spoiled brats bought one, most likely with their parent's money, and destroyed it.

      They should have shot it down,burned it,put it in the microwave and then put it in the rubbish bin and that's how you treat a stupid big ipod touch called ipad.

      I bet this made their parents are so proud of them. You can see they are super intelligent. I hope they breed soon! We need more fryer operators at McDonalds.

      so just cause its an expensive item and they are "younger" that automatically means that it is their parents money? they couldn't have a job that actually pays well? so by that theory am i to assume that you are a young kid and are too poor to buy one of these "magical" ipads that are a huge waste of money? (by the looks of your facebook i believe i am right) Maybe stop making excuses and accusing people of things when you dont know the truth.

      also i see 3 people maybe 4 that do something to the ipad which probably means they were in together on it and $600 split 3 ways is only $200 and that is not hard to save up at all especially with all the notice they had before it was released

      you may now continue drinking your cool-aid

      Wow! what a freaking bunch of degenerates! Geez, these guys are nothing better than the scum of terrorists that our country is trying to get rid of. Wish we could round up some of these genetic mishaps of our society, send them over to the sandbox, and have our fine young troops defending all of our good values and have target practice on them... Whatever, trailer trash will always be a part of our culture...too bad...

      Look at it this way:
      The more iPads bought, the lower the price will become. (iPhones were $500, now only $49 ;D) So these kids are actually helping you get your hands on one!

      I dont understand why someone would do something like this.

      The only thing that went through my mind while watching that video Was all the people that wish they could Get one but dont have enough money.

      This to me is like the same effect as someone throwing away food for no reason.

      You have to stop and think about all the people that really can not afford an iPad (just lost a job or whatever)

      Then again guys this is the internet and it Caters to genius's as well as morons.

      wow it was cool to see this when the ps3 came out and they smashed it in front of hundreds of people and they all started to cry but when you result in smashing an item in front of no one and have a best buy employee " in on it " you've sunk to a new low. BE ASHAMED

      If it was their own money I doubt if they would have been so stupid.

      Mind you, there are some very stupid people around.

      How can anyone condone such mindless vandalism?

      I could see people exploiting this and pretend that their iPad was stolen. People do it all the time with mobile phones.

      I just don't get it... Why would you waste time standing in line just to destroy the product? I am sure he raised the money through donations (hey, give me some money and be in my video to be the first to destroy an iPad type of thing) but still... It just shows you have no regard for anything in your life...
