Prepper News Watch for December 19, 2013

Prepper News Watch

One article I’d like to point out is the technical article from Apple about long-term storage of iPads. It turns out that iPad Minis can store for about 6 months and full sized iPads for about one year, if you follow their guidelines. This is good to know for anyone repurposing an old iPad for storage in a Faraday container.
