Dont loan your iPhone to people in these states

Capitol Hill is surrounded by what might be called the “capital spill zone,” at least according to data (and a requisite corresponding infographic, of course) released by gadget warranty outfit SquareTrade Monday.

This is the second year in a row the company has broken down the total number of iPhone damage claims in comparison with total protection plans it sold by state to draft its “clumsiest states” list. This year, the most dangerous place in the United States to be an iPhone isn’t actually a state. It’s that bright, shining center of our democracy: Washington.

Of course, given that Congress’ approval ratings spent much of 2013 at historic lows, it could also be argued that the town is more known for being full of slime than anything else, which could lead to an increased level of general slipperiness that’s boosted the number of smartphone drops and other mishaps.

Or, as SquareTrade suggests, perhaps the capital rocketing to the top of the ranking has something to do with the success of its sports teams in the past year — it claims 23 million Americans have damaged devices during sporting events.
