One of the most embarrassing tech-related experiences I ever had was at a music festival, while sitting round a campfire holding a big cup of white wine in one hand, and a Sony Ericsson T68 in the other. At the time, it was the only cameraphone available in the UK, so naturally I was showing it off. At least, until a drunken fumble led to, yes, one whizzy new handset floating in a cup of wine.
If only this advice had been around back then. Titled ‘How to Save a Wet Cell Phone’, it gives a six-step guide to making sure your phone doesn’t end up in the mobile knacker’s yard (strangely, one step involves soaking it in alcohol), along with some tips and warnings about what and what not to do in the process.
