[CEATEC 2008] Everyone worries about throwing away hard drives full of vital information, but yet very few people take the time to destroy the data (because it’s painfully slow) or the drive (it’s more work than you would think!). Crushbox is certainly a weapon of choice for the job: in a matter of seconds, it will drill a bunch of wholes (4, it looks like) in your hard drive, piercing everything from casing to the actual platters. While this might not erase the data, it will deter most people to try looking at the surface. Unless a government is after you, this should do the trick. Side note: there’s a version for VHS tapes too.
