iPad Fixed

My portable writers' rave.

My portable writers’ rave.

A month or so ago I broke the iPad screen.

This was the second time since I’ve owned it. The first time was just me being clumsy, the second time was faulty design of a special bag I bought to protect it. Yes, I was aware of the irony.

The screen was cracked, but it worked fine otherwise. I no longer carried it with me, though, so as to not risk killing it completely. Then I stopped working.

Recently I’ve been looking at replacing the loyal iPad and have been shopping around. Prices on tablets have really gone down but I was still hesitant to drop $200 for something decent.

Then today I got a whopping (for me) $90 royalty check in the mail and I decided to splurge. I determined it was finally new tablet time. The problem is, I love the old one. A Mother’s Day gift from Kyra, not only is it sentimental, but it works great and I have it set up with a great, lighted keyboard. I like working on the iPad set up more than FrankenPC.

I decided to splurge on fixing the one I had and took it to Sarge’s Cellular Repair in Valparaiso. iPad back, better than new, in just a few hours for a fraction of the cost of a new one. I’m once again a happy and productive camper.

I did have a small splurge though. I treated myself to a lighted, color change speaker so I can listen to Pandora while I work. With the lights off, it looks like a rave in here. Just the way I like it :)
