Man buys Pre and then smashes his iPhone
If you were to buy a Palm Pre to replace an iPhone, what would you do with the latter device? Some would immediately put it up for sale on Ebay. Others might pass it on to a sibling or give it to a friend. And there would be some who would just stick it in a drawer just in case it was needed later. But no one could have guessed what our friend John did with his iPhone. Grabbing a steel hammer out of his toolbox, he smashed his old phone beyond repair.
Maybe John was angry with Apple and the iPhone. Or perhaps it was AT&T that set him off. Either way, it proves that no matter how indestructable a touchscreen might claim to be, all it takes is a few swings with a decidely low tech weapon like a hammer to destroy it.
