A Diet Coke With A Squeeze Of iPod, Please

Yesterday I dropped my FOUR HUNDRED DOLLAR iPod iTouch into a cup of Diet Coke.

Yes, I'm a moron. And no, it's not working yet.

It was only in there for an instant; I fished it out so quickly I think I saw a flash of lightening come from my hand. I pulled it quickly from its case and tried to dry it off, shaking all the liquid from the bottom area where the charger plugs in.

After looking around online and going to the Apple Store, I got the same advice. Put the iPod in a bag of rice for 24-48 hours. So that's where my iPod currently is; in a bag of rice in my pantry.

I hope it works but if it doesn't, I'll be shopping for a new one. I was contemplating the iPhone because I'm really intrigued by it, but I love Verizon so much I don't think I can leave them. Their coverage is just outstanding and AT&T just can't compete in that area. So I guess I'll just be getting a new iTouch, but this time I think I'll go for the 64GB one so I can store tons of songs, videos, movies and info.

And I suppose I'll also have to take Ed's suggestion and drink my Diet Coke from a spill-proof sippy cup.

You're not a moron, just human! Ed has the right idea to make you more human.

One time I washed my cell phone in with the laundry. I too know the struggle of having those moron moments. Hope the rice works for ya :)

In a word DROID. I have had both (iphone and now the DROID).It runs faster jumps higher than the IPHONE. But putting all your eggs(music,video,etc.)in one devise is risky.Maybe get another itouch and and a new phone.
