    Are you going to upgrade from the iPad Air?

    I'm torn...wondering what many if you are going to do. If I sell my iPad Air right now (64 GB wifi), I can get about $400 for it on Craigslist. If I wait a year...I'm looking at $300 or less. I don't see a need to upgrade to the iPad Air 2, but the margin of resale will be less next year...

    Bodyguardz Pure vs. Spigen Glas.T Slim

    Well...I pulled the trigger on the Spigen deal that was through StackSocial. Not a bad deal, but overall, the Glas.T Slim is VERY fragile! It installed okay...it was difficult to get into place and bubbles were apparent. There were also dust particles, so I had to pull it and use tape to get...

    4G vs LTE Connecticity

    I have been experiencing an issue (albeit small) with 4G/LTE switching. Wondering if it's my phone or if others experience it too. Detroit just got LTE before the iPhone 5 released...so maybe it's a "newer network" issue. Typically, I have no issue & I'm on LTE. However, from time to time...

    Apple May Have Alienated a Consumer Segment

    The more I talk to people, I think that Apple may have alienated a segment of consumers. The people that love the iPhone and are techy are ok with the lightning connector and will be willing to buy the necessary cables & adapters. However, there are many people that are used to buying the $99...

    Hey, all! I just wanted to let you all know that just because you think an Apple Genius won't help your poor iPad, doesn't mean they won't! I noticed that the gasket in the corner was pushed down and the screen was definitely pushed into the corner. I never dropped the iPad, but one of my...
