It’s always the youngest.
On Saturday my 4yr-old left our iTouch (old iPhone) outside for four hours of rain. We didn’t notice it was missing until we went looking to play with it at 9:00 PM. My 4yr-old sheepishly told my oldest that she was using it outside and put it down on a lawn chair shortly before being chased back inside by the rain.
While holding the now dripping device, I did a little searching on some tech blogs for hope. Not surprisingly, I found numerous others with a similar problem, though different causes; dropped in the toilet being the best.
Following the advice of blogs, I dried it with a paper towel and stuck in a tupperware container with some silica packets and rice (short grain, in case you were wondering).
Well I opened the tupperware up this morning, plugged it into the computer and presto, it works.
I think I may be buying some more AAPL today.
