This is what happens when a shotgun meets an iPad

This is what happens when a shotgun meets an iPad
This is what happens when an Apple iPad stares down the barrel of a shotgun that is ready to fire. Check out the video down bottom to see the tablet carnage with your own eyes.

The Apple iPad is shot from behind with this shotgun, which adds a really awesome glass explosion effect, especially in slow motion. So really, it didn’t even see it coming.

When the action is shown in real-time, you can see the iPad’s screen die in an instant, followed by a cloud of smoke that leaks out of the main hole created by the shell.

Why did they do this, you ask? It is the advertisement for a tax website. Yes that is right, a tax website. Check out the video and leave us your comments (or your own  iPad kill stories) in the comments below.

It's funny how people waste money just like that knowing that a lot of people is suffering from poor way of living around the globe. What a wast of time, effort and money.

I bet if you shot an Android device the bullet wouldn't go through. It would Force Close before it got all the way through haha!

Now that we have established that an iPad is not resistant to a shotgun, it might be interesting to see what caliber of bullet and iPad might be proof against.

Maybe a Saturday Night Special, but I doubt it, write Mythbusters.

But it still doesn't replace a target. So the tally is uses 1 (a target), items it replaces 0.

Really? The first is a nuke? Do you even know what a nuclear weapon is? Definitely not a smoke bomb.
