iPhone 4 Gets Microwaved, Bursts Into Flames

Alright, I'm sensing that there's a theme going on with all these iPhone 4 destruction methods and videos on YouTube. Of the 1.7 million sold since launch, clearly not everyone is buying these things to actually use.

This one experienced its short life while inside a microwave, and is now part of a piece of 'modern art' for sale on eBay.

    I guess I am getting too old for this as I prefer to spend my money on stuff I'm planning to keep and use. I'm sure there are thousands of other sure-fire destruction methods for any phone on the market. Are we going to explore all of those?

    1. Drop it from the Space Needle ... will it crack?
    2. Use a sledge hammer ... will it scratch?
    3. Put it in a drill press ... will the drill break?
    4. Submerse it in fluid ... got milk?
    5. Replace "iPhone" with any other moniker and repeat ...

    Everything can be art, as long as you can explain why it's art. So a writer or a poet could probably become better artists than a painter...
