Our international man of gadget destruction is back! In September, Darcy LaCouvee travelled to bustling Hong Kong to get the iPhone 5 and pitch it in a ruthless drop test against the flagship of the…

And how vital it’ll be to know that if you load up your $500 Blendtec blender with your iPad mini and power it up, the tab will turn into a nice pile of dust in no time? Extremely!
Fortunately, the excruciating wait is finally over, and it’s time to let Tom Dickson, our favorite demolition man, take over and provide the oh-so-needed answers. Will the iPad mini, Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD blend? Tune in to the clip below and find out.

Just kidding. Everything doesn’t happen for a reason, and these three gadgets are pointlessly and senselessly destroyed. Still, can you deny yourselves the guilty pleasure of watching?
