While, strictly speaking, this may be true, I'm pretty sure it's not
what you meant, and I've seen this enough times that I just have to
say:

"loose" [looss] - a condition opposite that of "tight;" improperly
fastened or closed; unattached (and, in this sense, potentially
correct).

"lose" [looz] - to misplace <something> so as not to be able to find
it, as in, 'it's "losing" the usb devices and they can't be found any
more.'

There - got that off my chest!

And, now, back to our regularly scheduled emails....
