Are electronics effected by magnets now a day. I remember while growing up people would tell me to not put magnets near electronics cause it could hurt them and erase data but I'm starting to think that maybe magnets don't have that effect anymore or never did, Could I lay a SD card on a cordless phone or near a magnet tool and still be OK? I know if you put a magnet on a floppy disk everything will be gone but we're way past those days.
