Vegas BBQ – Burn, PC, Burn

Posted: May 30, 2007 in Technology

Picture a beautiful sunset over the desert, the glow of the Vegas skyline in the distance. Then a towering wave of flames leap into the air that crackles with the heat — a man just set his computer on fire. And I’m not talking about a little fire. This was a 1,700-degree blaze that engulfed ioSafe’s network attached storage device with four hard drives inside.

Come on… How many of us have had violent fantasies about setting our computers ablaze at one time or another? Well, this wasn’t one of those situations, but it sure was a heck of a lot of fun to watch. And what was more interesting was that once they put the fire out and cooled the box down a bit, the ioSafe guys were able to retrieve the data that was on the hard drives inside. No, seriously. I’m not even kidding. They put the hard drives in a new machine, fired them up (pun intended), and pulled up the information. Good as new.
