What happens when the MacBook Air meets dynamite?
Now that the new MacBook Air has been released, I think it’s safe to say that the old one is completely useless. Macenstein reader Scott Gawlik and friend agree, and decided to see what would happen if someone were to set of two M-1000 explosives on it. The results are as follows.
Now, normally I am not impressed by the “blowing up of tech” videos (especially ones where they do not show whether the device was functional beforehand), and I’m still not. But I must say, I am fascinated by this video just the same. Why? Well, I watch a lot of House Hunters on HGTV, mainly because I love to see how other people live. And this video has me rewinding and watching over and over… not the explosion, but the shaky tour of their house. First off, we have the super bizarre location, presumably in a side yard between houses in a fairly crowded area. There’s a nice falling down fence, lots of cinderbock construction, and some construction looking debris. Then around the other side of the house we see a reasonably nice patio (albeit with cracks, perhaps from past explosions), with an 1989 exercise bike that one of the fellows obviously does NOT use… then we see what looks like a bunch of TVs from the 1980′s (presumably those will one day also meet a M-1000). Then top it off with the barbed wire on the top of the adjoining house’s wall (perhaps to keep Scott out?). It’s all very interesting.
