Unlike a teardown, these devices can't be put back together.

Will It Blend is probably one of our favorite marketing campaigns of all time. The series sees Blendtec founder Tom Dickson blending all manner of items, from smartphones to Big Macs to golf balls. This time around, Blendtec has done a shoot out of sorts, taking three of the top brand 7-inch tablets available today and pitting them against each other in an expensive experiment.

Which is going to blend better, the iPad mini, the Nexus 7, or the Kindle Fire HD? Check out the video below and take a look.

They are advertising their blenders.
The videos go viral, people buy their products.... Profit.

How is that wasting money?

If anything it's wasting good consumer products, which I actually think is rubbish and a sad thing to do... Oh well...
It's like these horrifying beheading videos on certain websites - just for geeks...

The money the spent on the tablets could have fed 5 families for weeks in places that have nothing

Pointlessly snapping them up ? They could just put bricks or bits of metal in them

You sure you are talking about money and not morale here?
Because money-wise it's absolutely NOT a waste.

The whole "The money could have been spent..." argument is one of the most pointless and weak things I regularly hear.

Probably the most practical use of an iPad I've seen since it launched.
