Man uses a rifle to kill his Apple iPhone 4s to protest removal of bitcoin wallet from the App Store
So how far would you go to make a point? To what length would you go to protest something? The other day, Apple pulled an app from the App Store that provided a virtual wallet for the digital bitcoin currency. Why? Well, one thought is that Apple likes to have control over things, and this is something that the tech titan cannot control.

A Reddit user with the handle round-peg decided to offer a Nexus 5 to anyone who would smash his iPhone in protest of Apple's decision to remove the bitcoin wallet app. A man named Ryan from the YouTube show "Ryan's Range Report" decided to go even further. Instead of smashing an iPhone to bits, Ryan pulled out his rifle and killed it in cold blood silicon.

Ryan's YouTube show deals with things that go bang, so it might not be a surprise that he decided to use a rifle instead of a hammer. Want to see what it looks like when an Apple iPhone 4s gets shot? Click on the video below.
