The incredibly durable memory cards

From Ripley’s Believe it or Not:

“The memory cards in most digital cameras are virtually indestructable. They can be trampled, dunked in soda, or boiled and will still retain the digitally stored pictures!”

Good to know… And all this time I was treating my compact flash cards with care. Smartmedia cards, on the other hand, would stop working if you simply looked at them slightly wrong.
