Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Ipods
So I came across this article and website that simply disgusted me. What it featured was a video clip of this person from Toronto (figures) who decided to purchase an Apple iPod. Now understand he didn't have the resources to do it, rather he requested donations for this project. When he gathered enough people, and it was going to cost him $400.00 he proceeded to the nearest Apple store to make the purchase. He bought a 20gig iPod. Upon purchasing the said item, he took it out of the box, in the store, and began to stomp it with his foot. Needless to say the devised was smashed into pieces. Later the video shows him leaving and then taking a hammer to the devise to wreck it even further.
I know some people are going to hate the iPod because of all the hype but really, to smash one into pieces. This is ridiculous. Then again I don't know if it is even more ridiculous that people donated money for him to do just this.
I am not including the website for obvious reasons. This sort of person simply is annoying and after he enjoys his 15 minutes of webfame, should return to his job in the fast food industry.
