Over on YouTube there is this bit of post-modernist performance art wherein an iPad is beaten senseless with a baseball bat. The first time I saw this kind of art was when some kids destroyed a brand new XBox and a new PS3. But destroying a perfectly good Apple product is so much more symbolic of our society’s acceptance of corporate control. Remember the old MacIntosh commercial where the woman destroyed the screen with Big Brother on it? Things have now come full circle.
Also not to be missed: This episode of “Will It Blend” featuring the iPad.
