Whilst on holiday recently my 7 month old son yanked my iPod out of my hands and threw it into the sea, bubbling under a good few inches of water. By the time I had managed to fish it out it had been under for at least 30 seconds. Once out of the water the poor thing was very confused and froze with the message “USB Device not Recognized”. Not surprised it wasn’t, I doubt it has any driver software for “sea water”.
The good news is that after half an hour it kicked back into action and two weeks on my “iPod Submariner” its still working fine.
