In the old days, all you had to worry about was a twisted cord.
My electronic devices have suffered some mishaps:
- My cell phone ran through a complete washing cycle. My husband found it when he went to put the clothes in the dryer. “What setting would you like your phone dried on?” he asked. Surprisingly, after it dried out (not in the dryer!), it still worked, but I’d ordered a new one–my first smart phone.
- Within just weeks of getting it, I dropped it, and cracked the screen.
- I also nearly fried its little electronic brain when I forgot it and left it in the car on a hot day. Apparently it isn’t only pets and children you can’t leave in the car. It’s not good for phones either. I had a warning message on my cell when I got back to my vehicle. Surprisingly, again, once it cooled down, it still worked. I don’t think it was quite as smart, though.
- I almost extinguished my first Kindle when I dumped a glass of water over it. Once it dried out, it continued to work — but the little toggle switch was always kind of stiff after that.
I’ve had my newest smart phone for about a year, and so far I haven’t done anything to it!
