10-year old repairs cracked iphone glass for $22

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on May 25th, 2010

Normally when you crack the screen of your iPhone, you have to go to an Apple store and shell out a lot of dough to get your iPhone repaired. You can use a repair kit, but they aren’t easy to use. 10-year olds to the rescue.

This 10 year old managed to do the repair all by himself. That means you can probably do it as well. Brett repaired his dad’s iPhone with a $22 mail-order kit from 3GCrackedGlass.com. The repair was for the glass alone, since the LCD wasn’t damaged.

Netflix Blu-ray movies arriving cracked and unplayable

Netflix Blu-ray movies arriving cracked and unplayableThat’s what seems to be happening with a small group of subscribers who are claiming their discs are arriving with small cracks on the outside edges. They say it’s happening repeatedly. No one is sure what is causing it since the Discs have an extra coating to prevent scratches on Blu-ray.

It could be the automated mail processing machines, manufacturing defects or maybe postal carriers are playing Frisbee. The Mars Box blog experienced this issue back in ’07, but over the last few months reports are picking up again. It’s too bad the extra costs that customers are paying can’t go toward tougher packaging, but Netflix told Wired the problem is “infinitesimally small” and changing shipping wouldn’t be cost effective.
