A company proved the resilience of its military grade tablet case by dropping a bowling ball on an iPad inside the case.
But following the failure of this stunt to increase interest, which you can see below, the company decided to try something that was actually more likely to happen.
So that everyday occurrence of an iPad falling 100,000ft from a weather balloon above Nevada was tested. Apparently the iPad was in full working order when retrieved. The company in question even strapped a camera to it to improve it really happened. Hey wait a minute how did the camera survive.
Those PR gimmicks get more advanced.
Why don’t they try leaving an iPad in a nursery for half an hour and see what happens? A much cheaper test and more realistic. Toddlers can’t resist them. Unfortunately toddler vomit is more deadly than space dust.
Or you could lend it to a Computer Weekly journalist for an hour and it is likely to meet its end. Well that’s if they don’t sell it on eBay first.
