Submission + - The 'three ton' hard-disk destroyer (pcpro.co.uk)

Barence writes: "Last year, PC Pro welcomed a DIY-style hard-disk destroyer into its Labs to wreak havoc on some unsuspecting platters. Now the technology has moved on, with the Ideal 0101 — a device that pierces disks with between 2.5 and 3 tons of force. "It’s not the quick cut-and-shut process you’d assume it is," says PC Pro's reviewer."Instead, the 0101 seems to enjoy its particular method of torture.The punch emerges from the side of the bay, slowing piercing its way through metal, silicon and glass, before retreating once the disk is destroyed.""
