    I would most probably kill it. You'll be very lucky if it didn't.

  3. If you want to wipe one, try zapping it with sparks from a piezo-electric
    lighter, as used for gas cookers. Just formatting it will work if you have
    time. Do you really need to wipe one so fast it doesn't matter if you lose
    it? :)

    An alternative would be to stick it in a vice and crush it.

  5. Hammers are usually faster. :)
     
  6. Sure, even if you blow out the drivers, there's still the remote
    possibility that a lab with an AFM could read the stored charge in at
    least some of the potential wells.

    Formatting the device with a full overwrite would take care of the
    problem.

    Good points to those who recommend good ol' brute force crushing but yes, it
    would need to be done fast, in a "flash" so to speak, utterly destructive
    and perhaps activated remotely resulting in the prevention of any and all
    forensic attempts to retrieve data. I was curious if running current through
    one of these devices would burn the circuit (the bus) before it got to the
    chip that actually stores the data.

    Cooking it in the microwave should wipe it quite well!
