If you’ve ever managed to spill liquid on an electronic device, then you’ll know that it doesn’t take too much to kill them completely; liquid and electronics simply do not mix. But you might be surprised by how well your iPhone 5 fares when it comes into contact with its biggest enemy.
When Apple makes a major investment in a community, it can be a contentious thing, sometimes leading to a lot of environmental controversy.
