Thanks to faithful reader and commenter Ed Miller for hipping me to video activist Ben Simpson’s Smash My iPod site. The premise is simple, young Ben solicits donations which he puts towards everyone’s favourite Apple product, then proceeds to stomp on it in-store and videotape the results.
Now despite being an unabashed Apple fanboy and all, I’m heartened by the fact that our younger generations aren’t necessarily buying into that whole gadget fetish scene, especially around this time of year. Other sites in the “SmashMy” portal include SmashMyXbox and SmashMyPS3.
Kudos, Ben Simpson!
