Test 9: Acid, Cont.
Our new control USB key (the previous one was literally pulverized) was handed out at a press conference, from Philips. Once it emerged from the acid (after 30 minutes), the plastic had become a little transparent, but the key didn't seem to have suffered. It refused to work, though.
Verdict: Plastic isn't comfortable in sulfuric acid. That's 3-0 in favor of the LaCie USB key.
