How hard is it to destroy an iPod Nano? Well the guys from ArsTechnica took it on a little adventure and let’s just say they know what the guts of the Nano look like.
The iPod Nano incurred the following tests:
1. Sitting on the iPod Nano
2. Dropping it while jogging (4-6mph),
3. Dropping at various speeds: 8-10mph (slow bicycle), 15-20mph (fast bicycle), 30mph (slow car), and 50mph (fast car)
4. Dropping the Nano from various heights.
Once they realized that the above wasn’t going to stop the Impossibly Indestructible Nano, they decided to run it over in a CAR. First attempt failed, and the screen still displayed. They ran it over again, killed the screen, but the music played on. They finally destroyed the Nano by hurling it 40 feet into the air and letting it crash to the ground.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
