Today in pointless studies… a PR firm in the United Kingdom interviewed 400 dry cleaners (all located within the United Kingdom) and asked them how many USB drives they recovered from washing machines from forgetful clients. Thankfully, as anyone would expect, these businesses keep meticulous records about the number of USB drives left behind. Those 400 laundromats claimed that 17,000 were left behind in their establishments alone.
Do you know what that means? Throughout the world, there are probably millions of lost USB drives lonely waiting in washing machines because their owners left them behind. Thank you, Cresdant Technologies for alerting us to this epidemic. Don’t let this happen to your USB drive.
