I know static is a problem when you have your computer cracked open, and when you buy a stick of RAM commercially it comes with a little anti-static wrist strap so that you don’t fry the computer innards. But how much external static is safe when using, not repairing, a computer?
I have a brand new fleece blanket. It’s wonderfully warm, but so full of static that when I peeled it away from myself in the pre-dawn hours this morning, I actually saw sparks. Am I putting my MacBook at risk using it in bed with this heavily staticky blanket? How about my iPhone?
