Re: [newtech-1] before you sell your iPhone

From: user 4.
Sent on: Friday, May 30, 2008 12:07 AM
I am just curious. Does my car have a high powered magnet in it and no 
one told me? I do remember many years ago we used high powered magnets 
to destroy data on tapes and other magnetic media. Not from cars though. 
You know, I still don't trust magnetic swiping. No verification, etc. 
Even when using some of the other tools posted, I still don't trust them 
either. Call me paranoid, but I have brought back data when I thought I 
couldn't  - not claiming to be an expert, just someone who worked to do it.
