iphone & snow: an open letter to Steve Jobs
Dear Mr. Jobs:
I wanted to share some rather amazing news that happened today!
My fiancee and I are both iphone 4 users. Several weeks ago, she (Jennifer) dropped her phone during a heavy snow storm in the parking lot of a local restaurant.
We looked for a a day or two and then gave up on it. She actually went out and purchased a new iphone since we figured the original phone was a gonner. The parking lot, which received over a foot of snow, where she dropped the phone, was plowed and had snow banks several feet high for weeks.
Today (3/6/2011), we received a call from the restaurant letting us know that when they we're taking out some trash, they actually found the phone in their parking lot. They charged it and it WORKS FINE!
The only protection the phone had was a black bumper. Several weeks in snow, cold, moisture and being plowed did not trash the phone.
Great stuff! We thought you would like to know!
