Disc Jockey or DJ?

Have you ever thought of what DJ means? It's short for "Disc Jockey". It goes all the way back the days when DJ's would stay busy sorting through stacks of vinyl records. They only had a few minutes to find the next one, find the song they needed and cue it up. [caption id="" align="alignleft" width="175"] Picard's Request[/caption] The industry went to cassette tapes for a little while then quickly moved to CDs or "Compact Discs" and once again the DJ was a Disc Jockey. Now CDs are getting scarce, and it's hard to even find a regular CD player anymore. They all hook up to computers and read thumb-drives. At what time are we going to have to abandon the term? DJ's have access to thousands of songs released every day directly from the record studio to their hard drives, nobody hardly handles a CD or disc. If they do they are time-code vinyl or time-code CDs to help mimic the old days of real disc-based DJing. How many times has somebody been "filming" when something amazing happened and they exclaimed, "I got that on tape!". What tape? It's all digital, but we still say, "tape" and "film". What are we supposed to do with these antiquated sayings? Keep the tradition alive? So what is it? Are we Disc Jockeys, DJ's or what? Make sure to comment below and let us know if we should kick it oldschool so we don't forget our roots or what you think the new term should be? Don't forget to tell us in the comments below.

Cheap iPhone Repair

If one thing is for sure, people will keep buying iPhones and dropping them on the ground. In response to this phenomenon of people purchasing expensive fragile handheld devices and not taking care of them, a whole new market has emerged: Enter the cheap aftermarket iPhone screens and parts! It has long been Apple's stance that nobody outside of Apple's headquarters can properly fix an iPhone, therefore they do not offer replacement parts. In the past companies put out bids to buy broken iPhones, the companies harvest the parts, strip off the broken glass and re-manufacture the screen. These parts are distributed through regular cell phone repair shop distribution channels and then the rest go on eBay. The cost of doing this has gone down steadily until such a time as a home version of the LCD separator machine has been made available to the public. Now any average Joe can buy broken iPhones and make "New" iPhone screens out of them. The most common boom in this industry has come from people taking regular iPhone 5 screens and re-manufacturing them into iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c screens. Yes it's true you can buy a screen off eBay for very little money, but just know that part has been taken apart and fundamentally changed, sometimes in a home LCD manufacturing plant. How reliable would a repair like this be? The amount of bad iPhone parts in circulation right now is astronomical, and it gets harder and harder each day to find a reliable source. This is where I come in and where Cellular Warehouse & Repair in Billings MT differs from the competition: We don't buy our parts off eBay. We search and make sample orders and test suppliers until we find the perfect part that meets the factory specifications! We do not do glass only repairs on iPhones in-shop. While we could save a lot of money heating a separating the glass there is no way the repair would be as reliable as the precisely manufactured machine-made parts we order every day from reputable suppliers. So next time you're tempted by cheap iPhone screens or low repair costs consider going to a shop that holds a higher standard, you might be surprised that our repair costs are still very competitive.
