In the latest episode of "On the Whiteboard", Microsoft has released a video of some of the fun and adventure that their products go through during the testing in their reliability labs. This is the place where people are paid to wreck stuff for the good of all.
The various rooms at the labs contain different methods to run devices though a host of conditions that normally would not occur in the everyday life of the products. From dropping, to freezing, to rain and just good old fashion abuse, the video below gives you a peek at what goes on. In this case it's mostly about the Surface tablet being put through the ringer. Enjoy.
