Trashing an iPod nano

What does it take to destroy an iPod nano and what’s inside this tiny package ?

The guys over at Arstechnica put the nano through its paces.

To simulate the everyday accidents that could result in a broken iPod, they came up with a few situations that would ultimately leave the nano lifeless :


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.

Great read and an autopsy of the nano afterwards
