Researchers have discovered that MP3 players like iPods and iPhones get fractionally heavier depending on how many music tracks they contain.
The difference between a empty iPod and a full one is only a 0.4 gram say the team from Blackpool University. Tests showed that a empty 16GB iPhone weighed 133.2 grams compared to 133.6 for the same model filled with 3,500 songs. Professor Roger Banks said: “This is the first time the weight of computer data has been measured. We all know it is made out of ones and zeros, but the ratio of ones to zeros seems to make a difference.”
The boffins will now investigate whether the weight of different types of files music, video or pictures varies when they have the same file size. The discovery could mean that trading standards force makers Apple to repackage all unsold iPods and iPhones in the UK to state that weights may vary
I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT! I TOLD YOU I WASN’T MAKING UP SHIT! I really felt and realized my iPod got heavier after filling it up with more than a thousand songs! This is so weird but cool!!! I’m not crazy, y’see! :) Hihi
I SURVIVED! Took the LRT from Trinoma to Cubao with Marvin, and then took the LRT from Gateway to Recto ON MY OWN, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE! HAHA!
Got harassed for being squeezed in by people when I was trying to make my way out of the train. I was even accused of pushing them when somebody else was pushing me. :| For a moment there, I felt tiny and helpless. HAHA It was much harder than what I experienced in China, Singapore, and Hong Kong. Firstly, some of the guys I squeezed in with today were sweaty. :| Secondly, I did it in friggin Manila! HAHA
For the most part, it felt so rewarding! :D WHOOOOOOH!
I’m glad that I’ve been able to do and experience this before I finally turn 20. Hihi. :P And I can say that I’m finally fulfilling my wish and completing my college experience. :)
