A thought, on iPod-related things.

There's a certain advantage to hardware that's all solid-state and sealed together and no user-servicable parts...

...I say, having pulled suzanne's iPod shuffle off of a sweater that I just took out of the clothes dryer, and discovered that it seems to be working fine despite going through the wash-and-dry-cycle.

On the other hand, there's also something to be said for hardware that's big enough that you can see it before you accidentally put it in the wash, too.

(Addendum: I mentioned this on our work IRC channel, and my sysadmin said that he's done this to his several times. It would not at all surprise me if laundry survivability was one of the goals when Apple designed it.)
