Well, I have heard about tests being done (unintentionall) on the waterproof characteristics of certain products. A friend dropped his high tech cell phone in the toilet and let it dry out for a couple of days and it worked fine afterwards. I ran a PDA through the washer AND the dryer, and a couple days later it also worked fine. Today I tested a 1 Gig thumb drive. It ran through the whole cycle of my washing machine and about 5 minutes in the dryer. I haven't tried it yet, intending to let it dry for a day or so and then testing it in the morning. What are the odds that it will work. Maybe I should do a poll.
