Hi! The other day my girlfriend did a laundry, and you guessed it, she didn't notice my father's iPod (a hostage I took so he would keep a promise, actually) in the pocket. Now, eight days later, it works again! I just connected it to the MBP, iTunes fired up, and Boom!, it synched up!!!! Unbelievable! I've read stories about it surviving laundries before, but when you witness it, it's actually even more impressive! I love this small aluminum thing!
