Can iPads Survive A 100,000 Foot Fall?
The Apple iPad is indestructible – well sort of. A recent promotional video for the G-Form iPad protection case, made the point by dropping an iPad from space. The resulting fall proved that the case worked to a great extent and thus showing that an iPad can survive a 100,000 foot fall.
Of course the promotional video is being classed gimmicky by some, but I say what the heck? If you can try to see whether an iPhone can ‘blend’, I say you can drop an iPad from space. The only distinction that needs to be made here is the very obvious fact that an iPad, by itself, cannot survive a 100,000 foot fall. Perhaps not even a 10 foot fall. G-Form thus ends up looking like one tough protection case, and perhaps the next best thing to ensuring that expensive and fragile gadgets like the iPad survive beyond their warranty.
Those convinced will of course have to buy the G-Form ‘Extreme Edge’ case for iPad for the not-so-meagre price of $45—though I can’t see many iPad owners complaining about that. For one thing, an iPad based on the cost alone should be considered an investment. And all investments need to be protected.
But as a parting shot, can you imagine how much a promotional video involving an object being dropped from space cost? It can’t be cheap, that’s for sure.
