So it means the standard now is trash the drive and melt the remains into a sticky blob. Or alternatively you sit it on a desk and place a heap of Neodymium magnets above it. And screw the data on the drive that way.

It's certainly much more fun to come up with "physical" ways to make a hard drive unreadable...than simply running "Disk Utilities" over-write procedure 7 or 35 times!
