back to article Apple's iPad - 'Will It Blend?'

Apple's iPad, released Saturday, has been scrutinized by hundreds of reviewers, disassembled by iFixIt and others, and fiscally analyzed by Wall Street, but it wasn't until Monday that the most pressing question about the "magical and revolutionary" device was answered. That question, of course, is: Will it blend? 'Will It …

    a waste of money, but....

    OK it blends. A fitting end to the ipad and most other consumer gadgets. (except for the ones that I use of course :) )

    Paris cos she likes to blend - from what I've heard!

      Don't think its a waste

      Over 1 million views of an ad that isn't forced on you (like in a TV show) for a mere $499.... Sounds like great value. Can't get that kinda value from any ad company I know of.

    Love that site.

    I was impressed with the fact you could see the keyboard through the cracked and bent screen

    Will it sell

    is the more important question..

    It shouldn't, but there are far too many retards around that will buy anything if it's got white plastic and an i in the title...

      You mean "M'I'crosoft products", like "W'I'ndows" and "Off'I'ce?

        Re: W'I'ndows

        ... but it has to be in white plastic, too... Sorry.

    I knew there was a use for the iPad!

    Every tech disaster has a silver lining.

    Somehow that site never gets old, and I had my fingers crossed they would do an iPad.

    not everything...

    Shame itv's profits are low. They need more white plastic

    A much more entertaining and scientific approach

    that the video that emerged over the weekend of a bunch of youths assailing their iPad with a baseball bat and their feet. Didn't seem to work too well afterwards, mind you

    Twice as strong as the previous model

    Hmm, good decision Tom.... shows twice the durability, twice the brandability as their previous model.

    Now with more smoke too !!!!

    Cheating ...

    if you have to bend it first, which also pre-weakens(TM) it. Where's the Wide Mouth Blendtec model?

    Not sure I'd buy a food preparation appliance from a company that is shredding heavy metals on their premises.

    That is all.

    More importantly

    I think that Blendtec should patent the folding iPad!

    It's a cracking idea.

    ipad dust

    Don't breathe it.

    Only another 499,999 (or so to go)

  20. John Dougald McCallum


    I want one of those. Blenders that is.

    Shouldn't the guy be using a mask or something when blending electronics? I mean, there's nasty stuff in there, heavy metals and all, and I bet some of it is flying in that dust that comes out...

    The aluminum back and the batteries were removed for this - Fail

    I want the batteries exploding please...

    It's easy to spot the cutaway after the initial try at breaking the iPad in two. Chances are they just blended the screen or its plastic cover. It would have been easy to rip off the plastic once the unit's frame was bent enough.

    welcome our new Blentec overlords!

    Will it blend?


    Will it Wi-fi?


  26. Marcus Fil

    No it won't

    At least not without partial disassembly to remove the bits that don't. This kind of cheating means I won't be rushing out to buy a Blendtec for all my iPad blending needs. How many years of evolution has it taken to get to this?
