In Pictures: 22 ways Apple’s iPad video mixes fantasy and reality
Apple marketers are some of the best in the business, especially when showing off the new iPad Air in a promotional video. But don't fall completely for the marketing hype this holiday season. We break down one of their most compelling videos to separate real-world uses from fantasy.
Our Take: Water Logged
Quick, how much pressure can an iPad withstand? Most wrecks are at depths nearing 100 feet or more, so the iPad will need a pressure-equalizing $600 case, such as iDive. The case has a canister of compressed gas that pumps air into it the deeper the diver goes. So is it possible? Yes. But divers know water gets everywhere, especially on the boat ride out to the wreck site. Water is the No. 1 killer of iPads and iPhones. Even a little moisture can ruin it. We doubt many divers would risk bringing their $500-plus iPad Air below the surface.
