Here's the cliff where the drop test will be carried out - that's a 75 foot drop down to the shingle!
Need to give IPOD test results after going through the tests inside. Even though the case Broke open on drop test, IPOD may have stayed inside and worked anyway. Blowtorch test looked the same as other cases. Don't know if that is good for the IPOD case or bad for the other cases. IPOD wasn't inside to test after. Summary: Grow some and give a real test...with the IPOD In it!
I don't even have an iPod and I wanted to see what happens to it when tortured and if the protection live up to it's name. The tests were great ideas and the pictures - especially the car poised on the case - very amusing. Plus, what if the case is not entirely sealed shut? What if it is shot? How many lbs of force can it's hinges with stand? etc. I may need to buy an ipod... ;)
Just because the case is indestructible doesn't mean the contents are. Just ask those people who died going over Niagra Falls in a Barrell. I agree that the iPOD should have been inside, and playing at the time of the tests. But I do think that we need some rationality on what we are trying to achieve.
