Have you ever watched one of your prized gadgets disappear before your eyes? The feeling you get is a little hard to explain. It’s a combination of a sad sinking feeling with a twist of shock. I unfortunately recently went through this experience losing a brand new AR Drone. The image you see above is the last thing I saw on my iPhone as my AR Drone was swept out to the Atlantic Ocean by a gust of wind in Belmar, NJ. One moment my AR Drone was 5 feet above my driveway. A split second later it was a tiny dot on the horizon way out over the ocean. Sucks. I only got to fly it twice.
Have you ever lost one of you gadgets before? Maybe dropped your phone in a swimming pool or toilet? Please tell us about it below in the comments.

yikes! did you save your Zen, or throw it out?
Oh yeah, this happened a few years ago. I had a brand new Creative Zen and was listening to music. I had to attend to nature’s call and opened the door of bathroom. The next thing I see is that my brand new Zen slips out of my hand drops right into the bucket with water. I had just opened it and started using it that day.
I still feel sad about that day.
