Interesting nonetheless!

I was wonderring the same thing...I don't know about that blender....
...all that powder...

Note that it just cuts the point where he is showing the bowl with powder after the blender stops. Kinda fishy, if you ask me.

I mean I'm not doubting that they killed the poor iPhone, but again all that poweder??

It is a great series that has formed an internet culture.

The insides of the battery? Or the LCD? Or maybe the black background of the LCD, which could be some kind of carbon?

Notice that it was all a homogenious mixture? (except for the Benzel?)

Still smells fishy...also no class or plastic reminants?

I think it's legit... watch the other videos on www.willitblend.com - absolutely amazing  Smile. They blend other things with glass, and nothing remains. I guess I have to order one of those blenders... and an iPhone to blend, to see if it was a fake or not (OK, just kidding with the last part).

But I don't know, I'm still not completely convinced.

It is probably the battery. Blending the battery will release a lot of energy quite quickly as it shorts out. Remember the flaming laptop batteries?

Haha, I wish, in my wildest dreams (I cant even afford the blender) !!

I actually went out, June 29th, that Friday- and got an 8GB iPhone!
I sold it on eBay that night for a 300$ profit!  Wink

I have Verizon, and am skeptomistic to A) switch to AT&T and B) pay $60 a month!

That company is brilliant...take a brand new piece of technology, shred it to pieces, and soon enjoy selling it for hundreds of dollars more than its original retail price.

I've been a big fan of this website for several months now. This just puts the icing on the cake.  Smile
