The Examplas blog picks up on a recent SC Magazine story:

We were intrigued to find out the results of a recent survey of dry cleaners today.  Yes, that’s right, dry cleaners.  How on earth could that possibly be of interest to us at Exemplas, you cry?  Well, because of one nugget of information that leapt out at us- more than 17,000 USB sticks were left in items of clothing deposited at the dry cleaners in 2010!

The survey canvassed more than 500 dry cleaners and launderettes in the UK and found that USB sticks continue to turn up where they don't belong.
