11 Quick Fixes for Gadget Disasters
Dropping your cell phone in the pool (or worse) or spilling coffee on your computer keyboard doesn't necessarily mean that you have to buy a new one. Such last-minute disasters happen all the time. As a public service for our klutzy readers, or those who choose to take a 'MacGruber' approach to tech repair, we've put together a list of quick fix solutions for your gadget and tech mishaps or emergencies. We've scoured the Web (and pestered the IT guys) to compile this list, and, while some are tested methods of providing a temporary fix on the cheap, a few solutions are intended to be used only as a last resort option. (If you decide on a whim that your keyboard needs cleaning, put it in the dishwasher, and find that it no longer works, sorry, but you're on your own, folks.) Regardless, we hope these help.
