Somehow, I forgot to include this article in my last blog post. Matt Hickey, who is now a dear friend of ours, posted about us back in December when we repaired his iPad.
You can check out the blog article here: Forget DIY repair. Sometimes, you need the pros
SIDE NOTE: I really enjoy that CNet tech blog and Matt’s contributions; maybe you will like it too.
Here’s what his iPad looked like before we got ahold of it (Thanks Matt for the pics):
In other news, we’re gearing up for a big March, and the iPad 2 launch which is rumored to take place next week. We’ve all seen the rumors… 3G on every model and the front and rear facing cameras seem to be the popular theory. Also, with a little less fanfare, new MacBook Pros are rumored for next week. Stay tuned, and let’s get that Apple stock back up! It’s been dropping over the last few days.
Thanks for reading!

It shouldn’t be a surprise that rumors of Apple’s second generation of the iPad have been making their rounds across the blogosphere. The device has been out for less than three quarters of a year and we are already seeing “leaked” photos of the iPad 2 back case. After browsing through Gizmodo’s website, I found this article about the iPad 2. While many of these photos are “questionable” it is hard not to speculate on the possibility that these photos might be real. Its all in good fun, isn’t it?
So what does Apple have planned for the iPad 2? We can only guess at this point. According to the Gizmodo article, the iPad 2 will have a “Bigger Speaker, Flatter Back” and will be “Very Slightly Smaller.” Starting from the beginning, does the iPad even need a bigger speaker? Sure, it wouldn’t hurt. Who wouldn’t like to have a little extra volume while you’re watching your favorite youtube video? Personally, though, I would rather listen to my iPad through a set of bluetooth speakers.
Next up, the iPad is rumored to have a flatter back. This makes perfect sense, doesn’t it? Just look at the change Apple made from the iPhone 3G S to the iPhone 4. It seems like the next logical step for Apple to take with the iPad.
Finally, according to the article, the iPad will be slightly smaller. According to Jesse, one of our iPad technicians, we could see how Apple could rearrange some of its internal components to make it a little more compact. Thinner is better right? Finally! I will be able to fit my iPad in my back pocket!!! lol. Cheap, I know.
What else is there? Let’s engage in conjecture. For this, I will ask the question: What does the iPhone 4 have that the iPad currently doesn’t?
Hmm…Interesting. I don’t see any reason the iPad 2 shouldn’t have these features.
Well, one can only guess as to what Apple will ultimately do with the iPad 2. Whatever happens, everyone will be clamoring to get their hands on one.
