Toledo Talk

IPhone wet inside

Crap. Had my iPhone sitting on the counter. Mr Gamegrrl put the bottle of Windex on the counter. Apparently bottle of Windex has a pinhole leak or something, because there's Windex all over the counter AND inside my iPhone.

WTH do I do?

put the phone in a bag with rice or other absorbent material and don't touch it until tomorrow. don't push the buttons... just leave it alone and let it completely dry out.

Thanks. Yeah, it's in a bag with rice. I did pop open the sim cover to see if the little color changing thing had changed to red, but it hadn't. Hopefully, a good dry-out and everything will be A-OK.

The Otter Box Drowning - ?

Fortunately for my keyboard I wasn't drinking anything. Thanks for the laugh; I really needed it this morning.

I couple months ago, after my lunch break, I put half a bottle of apple juice in my purse. You see where this is going...
The half open bottle spilled in my purse and on my iPhone.
Moral of the story - Ironically enough, turns out you cannot charge an iPhone with apple juice.

gamegrrl - Sorry for your loss. Hope you were insured.

I humbly suggest the following change to the obituary:

"Phonie Grrl, of Toledo died Tuesday, August 25 at the former Medical College of Ohio surrounded by her family, as a result of an accidental drowning."

Too late, it has already been sent to The Blade, formerly known as The Toledo Blade (through 1960). An obit that length should run around $2,500

But while we're here, let's do this right:

The University of Toledo Medical Center (2006), formerly the Medical University of Ohio (2004, but let's expunge all references to it), formerly the Medical College of Ohio (1964), formerly the Maumee Valley Hospital (1943), formerly known as Lucas County Hospital (1930).

The family invites you to join them at a local Mexican restaurant to be determined for dinner after the services......

If I were to do it all over again, I would have said that she was preceded in death by siblings iPhone 3g, iPhone 4s, and special friend, Steve Jobs.
