MacBook Attracts

by Heng-Cheong Leong, MyAppleMenu

All my life, I grew up with the "knowledge" that computers and magnets simply don't mix.

Don't put your floppy disks on top of a magnet if you treasure your files. Don't put the telephone next to your hard disk, or one ring and your data are gone.

So, here I'm, getting used to the idea that there are magnets inside the MacBook computer. Apple, you are sure that my data are safe? :-)

Of course, if you are the worrying kind — and maybe I'm — you'd also wonder what happens when the magnetism runs out?
