Video: Laptops are not waterproof

ComputerWeekly was sent this video from OnTrack, which we thought we'd share.

Relaxing on a beach, a gentleman had taken his laptop on his holiday to stay up-to-date on e-mails. When the midday temperatures started to soar, he decided to go for a swim. Wary of leaving his laptop unattended, he popped it into a plastic bag so it would not get wet and went for a dip - laptop and all. The bag did not prove as durable as he hoped: the laptop got soaked and he lost his data.
