CES 2013 - If I survived a plane crash, the last thing I'd be worrying about is the data on my iPad, but hey - some people carry around some seriously sensitive, or precious data on their smart devices these days.
At CES 2013, we talked to Ontrack Data Recovery who told us they were able to recover data from a customers iPad that was heavily damaged in a plane crash. What Ontrack Data Recovery do is take apart the device, in this case an iPad, and take the physical memory chips off. After this step, they image the chip raw, and then piece the data back together in the same pattern that is normally done by the controller chip.
