Kitchen Is Most Dangerous Place For Phones
If you have ever destroyed your phone you likely know this: it was completely your own fault. At least it was when I did it in the washing machine... twice.
According to a new survey of iPhone owners, 51% of people who've destroyed their phones have done it around the house. And 69% of iPhone accidents are caused by the owner.
The kitchen is the place where the most accidents happen. The living room is second, the bathroom is third, the driveway is fourth, and the bedroom is fifth.
The survey also found 9% of people have dropped their iPhone in the toilet 6% have left it on the roof of their car and driven off and 5% have accidentally run it through the washing machine.
Also, the liquid you're most likely to spill on your iPhone is water. Soda is second, beer is third, and coffee and tea are fourth. - (cnet)
