Mark Dain Someone explain this to me: There's this guy on YouTube, TechRax, who publishes several videos a month, each one smashing, burning and melting iPhones. They're always just virtually new, mint condition too. He mentioned in "Don't Ever Pour Bromine on an iPhone 6S!" that he "bought it today" and then he showed a video of when he did it before! Who destroys 2 iPhones in 1 video? How does he have the money for this?! Is 7 million views enough to buy a new iPhone?!

Khll Actually, Youtubers can make an average of $1000 per million views so yeah, 7 million views can definitely cover the costs of an iPhone.

John Olinda I hate those videos. There might be something to be said for ones that are stress-testing devices for consumer awareness, but just destroying them for the fun of it is insane. Well, not insane, but I have a hard time relating to someone who thinks that's a beneficial use of money. Evidently there are plenty of people who disagree.
Khll I used to think people who do these videos are just spoiled kids but turns out it is a smart business model (Profit wise that is). Therefore it is people who watch these videos the ones who are insane.
