We are tough on our devices in-the-wild. From the occasional drop to bearing the elements of a hot car or a cold winter day – our tablets, laptops and smartphones pretty much see it all. However, whether or not they survive when faced with real life torture is questionable.
CNet‘s Molly Wood recently launched a new show, called Always On, where she puts gadgets through the wringer to see how they fair in the real world. Wood used the new third-generation iPad as a prototype for her first extreme, in-the-wild series of tests. She came up with five testing categories- heat, cold, dropping, spilling, plus a wild card test based on users feedback. From popping the new iPad in the toaster oven, to giving it a nice bath in water- Wood put the new Apple iPad device through it all.
How did the iPad fair? Pretty well! See for yourself in the video below:
