We like to think of technology as futuristic, shiny apparatus that makes our lives easier and makes us more efficient than ever before. In reality however, much of the technology we come across on a day-to-day basis is just a disaster waiting to happen. From ancient motherboards to filthy keyboards, much of the technology we use at work and at home should have been thrown out around the same time that Windows XP was released.
Now thanks to our friends over on subreddit r/TechSupportGore, we can all now appreciate the sights that give IT guys and gals recurring nightmares. So sit back, relax and get ready to order yourself a new keyboard, stat.

For some reason, destroying technology in various ways has become a really big trend on the internet recently. Perhaps it’s something to do with our subconscious hatred of the machines that are keeping us from truly interacting with our fellow humans? Or maybe we just really like smashing stuff up…
Take the following video, for example, which shows vlogger TechRax attaching 14 iPhones to a giant glass ball and dropping it from 100 feet up in the air.
