An important message to all retro fans who also like hi-tech gadgets: Tablets contain magnets.
German IT news site Golem.de has published a report (in German) of a user destroying the hard drive in his notebook by putting an Nvidia Tegra Note 7 on it. The magnets in the device are supposedly strong enough to hold the 335 gram device suspended from above.
According to Golem.de, the Tegra has especially strong magnets, but other tablets exhibit the problem as well. Biotronik, an implant producer, has also warned that people with an artificial cardiac pacemaker should make sure to keep at distance from tablets.
So, the message is clear: Keep your tablets away from floppies, tapes, and other devices sensible to magnetism.
