So our CEO is on CNBC last night, talking about the super skinny X300, and he lets it be known that it is spill resistant. There is actually a drain built into the machine to funnel liquids out of the machine and away from the electronics. I have never had occasion to find out if it works.
The co-anchor says, “I’ve got a bottle of water right here …”
Our CEO — a former college wrestler (Lehigh) not known for backing away from a challenge — picks up the machine and says, “Try it.”
The TV guy starts pouring away, CEO yanks the machine back, saying in effect, “I didn’t say give it a bath!” The machine is soaked. Not just the keyboard, but the entire bottom half of the machine.
Discussion goes on, then they decide to push the power button and see what happens. Drumroll please. The machine lights up. All is beautiful, high fives all around.
Here’s the video.
