The iPad 2 Smart Cover Reveals Its Magneto Powers

In an admittedly silly 'teardown' of sorts, the iFixit guys opened up the iPad 2's Smart Cover to see how it works. The secret behind the Smart Cover's magic? 31 magnets. Twenty-one in the cover itself, ten in the iPad 2. And apparently they're all pretty strong (when taking these pictures, the magnets jumped around and fused together). A tongue in cheek zero out of ten in their repairability score. [iFixit]
