When money is no object: Gold Apple Watch Edition gets crushed by two powerful neodymium magnets
posted by Maxwell R. / Jun 14, 2015, 4:29 AM
How strong are these magnets? A set that is larger than a few cubic centimeters will cause physical injuries if they are not handled properly. Commercial applications are plenty, such as for MRI machines, audio gear (speakers), and a host of electric motors and generators.
They can also be used to crush gadgets. Northern California based tech destroyer TechRax happened to have an Apple Watch Edition and two bricks of neodymium magnets that have enough magnetic attraction to create about 650 pounds of crushing force. The obvious play
The watch was effectively destroyed of course. The gold doesn’t look too bad. Amazingly, when he put the watch in the box to connect the charger, the thing emitted an audio acknowledgement that it was reading a charge.
A pointless waste of money? You bet. Better than putting two Apple Watch Editions on a dog? Probably.
Best use of Apple watch so far, actually this is the only useful thing with any iOS product - crushe 'em, burn 'em, boil it, and put a .50cal thru it. It cannot do anything else - useless product otherwise. Ok, let's see how many likes this gets?

I hate people asking for likes. Like if you agree.

Well. I guess Apple made too many of the gold watches, and not enough of the other ones. So what better way to get rid of unwanted junk. Break it down for recycling. A least he's doing something that is green for the environment. ;-)

An ignorant troll who can't afford an Apple product. Cry harder...

It was a good scientific experiment. He was asking for likes from the "fandroids". Instead, he got an "Android users are poor and Apple users are rich" comment. It makes me wonder if the "fandroid" problem they say exists is truly the problem.

The best youtubers make from a million up to 10-15millions a year, and I am talking about people with 40-50mil subscribers. Basically you get around a 1$ per 1000 views from ads shown and clicks. Its not 100% correct just a general estimate I have read. This guy has videos with all of them combined 250+ million views. You can do the math if he does well or not. He made at least 250.000$ so far and that's the s**ttiest lowest estimate. Not including sponsors and ads in the video from other companies and not google ads.
