Here is one reason not to buy an iPad from Wal-Mart

Here is one reason not to buy an iPad from Wal-Mart
One thing is certain - you don’t know where your electronics come from. You don’t know whether some workers in a factory on the other end of the world didn’t throw it around, drop it while it’s in the box and laugh it out. You don’t even know whether this happened at the very Wal-Mart you purchased your iPad in.

And while chances are that people working countless hours in China manufacturing electronics would under no circumstance throw them around for fun, at Wal-Mart these things could happen.

Or at least that’s what the video below shows - employees throwing around iPads, dropping them and generally having fun breaking your electronics. It could be fake. Some kind of a joke, but it looks realistic. What you’ll see below is from a Wal-Mart warehouse in Pikeville, KY, and next time you shop at a Wal-Mart, you might want to check the condition of that iPad before you leave the store.

Who's stupid enough to damage company's property and put in on youtube ? They could get fired or sued

Yeah, people who work at Walmart definitely don't want to lose that high paying job. What were they thinking?

19. thelegend6657 unregistered

Yes, the way Walmart treats its employees is indeed wrong.

In 9th grade they teach you not to incriminate yourself. Unfortunately, they dropped out after middle school.

That's y u buy products striaght from the source for example if your buying iPad you buy directly from the store. I'll be getting a nexus 10 next week but im not going to get it from these stupid third party locations ill order it straight from Google.

You should look up UPS Drivers who delivered packages like TV's and throw them. UPS will also delivered (and toss around for fun) to stores before anyone can even get a chance to sell them. That also includes Fedex, usps and any other company that has humuns.

I guess they just do not like iPADs, but they must like GOOGLE NEXUS tablets, because I got mine from my local Walmart and it works fantastic!!

That just gave me a 'ding'!! Maybe this is why iPhone's shipping numbers increased... These people shattered the 'i' products. But for me, as long as it is Apple, i don't mind. Here's my advice...keep breakin'em!! :D

It's just sad how low life stupid idiots some people are. I sure don't want friends like that.

I personally worked at a wal mart store in elctronics dept. even though i hate to admit working the most hated company. we don't even trash our electronics items like that even though it looks very fun to do that to a iPad. but only care bout sales most sales goes to our pay checks these guys are bunch of idiots even though i praise them for breaking the ipad but they should got fired over this.
