I understand why someone would want to shoot an iPhone with a 50-caliber rifle. Any product created by any company that calls its sales staff “geniuses” is cruising for a ballistic bruising. But Google Glass? To quote about a thousand movies, “noooooooooooooo!” First, the device is delicate. It’s simply no contest. OK, sure, using a KRISS Vector evens-up the odds somewhat. But no one expects Google Glass to survive much of anything (including the derisive comments sure to be posted below). To me, this video looks like someone shooting an orchid. I like orchids (for strictly Freudian reasons). Second . . .
I reckon wanton destruction of new things people covet – via firearm – sets the wrong tone for The People of the Gun. Yes, I know; I’m contradicting myself, Apple-wise. But just because you can shoot something doesn’t mean you should – any more than just because you can shoot someone doesn’t mean you should. Your thoughts? [Note to ENDO: h/t TTAG]
