Unintended Submersion Test

I don’t rec­om­mend doing this, but I left an SD card in the breast pock­et of a dress shirt and then put it into the wash. It went through warm water (but not the dry­er; we don’t even have one of those, which is anoth­er sto­ry for an envi­ron­men­tal blog).

After the Tran­scend 4 GB High-Capac­i­ty Secure Dig­i­tal card went through the wash, I retrieved it and put it in my Mac. Lo and behold, it’s work­ing fine. I remain amazed, and expect to buy more of these, but at high­er stor­age capacities.
