A few months ago, my old iPod took an accidental sink bath, seemingly ending its life forever.
The last time I even looked at this thing, the screen was dark and it would not even acknowledge that it ever had a battery charge, or any function whatsoever. And I did nothing to it. I did not put it in rice to dry it out. I didn’t even keep it in a dry place to dry it out. Heck, I left it in a damp basement.
Now, I am not an Apple snob. I prefer PC’s over Macs, and Android over iOS (especially iOS7). But, I have to give Apple credit for building a device that is sturdy enough to endure what this particular iPod went through.
That being said, iOS7 is not going anywhere near this newly resurrected iPod.
