I’m sure many of my readers are entertained when tech blogs or Blendtec destroy a new gadget, but the following video will be far less amusing. It reportedly shows a group of Walmart employees abusing iPads.

I’m not entirely sure this video is real, but according to the Redditor who posted this video the employees have already been identified and fired.

And as infuriating as this video is, I’m still not convinced it is real. Several other commenters have responded to the original post on Reddit and they point out that $500 iPads aren’t simply tossed in with other new stock. They’re handled by managers, transported in locked cages, or in some other way protected from being stolen. So it does not seem likely that the boxes being thrown around actually contained iPads.
