Stress Testing the iPod Nano
I read this article on ArsTechnica a few days ago but just now thought about posting it. They take the new iPod Nano through a crazy string of stress tests from dropping it out of a car going 50mph to running over it with a car.
What does it take to destroy an iPod nano, and what's inside this tiny package? We wanted to answer both questions and strangely enough answering the first allowed us to answer the second. We could take our turns at purposely rendering the iPod nano broken, and then when it had endured more damage than it could handle we'd end its misery with a respectful autopsy. Now, we know that destroying the iPod nano makes some (strange) grown men want to cry. Rest assured, you can still buy one yourself, and the local priest said all iPod nanos go to heaven.
