iPhone Repair's insight:
For the past 6 months, I’ve been rocking the Motorola Photon on the Sprint NOW network – and loving every minute of it. I’m not a phone guy, I’m not even really a techie. I’m a big usability person – features mean nothing for me unless they roll off my finger tips and really integrate into my life. I like to think of telephony and devices therein as an extension of my life, kind of like a rifle is to a soldier.
I bought the Motorola Photon after having a terrible bout with the HTC Evo – a monster of a phone that had an array of problems from its memory issues to the awkward screen size and shape. I wanted something that would really help me work faster and more efficiently. I wanted to be the person while taking a subway ride across town could tear out 5-10 emails, return my texts, and research the next big restaurant in town. With previous phones I was lucky if I could figure out if I was using an app or changing my settings or at myhomescreen.

The daily lowdown on books, publishing, and the occasional author behaving badly.
Apple CEO Tim Cook has been ordered by U.S. District Judge Denise Cote to testify in the Justice Department's antitrust case over alleged price fixing. Last year, the DOJ filed a lawsuit accusing Apple and five major publishers — Penguin, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Hachette and Macmillan – of conspiring to fix e-book prices. The publishers all chose to settle. The trial is scheduled to start in June.When Middle C author William H. Gass was asked the question "What is something you always carry with you?" by The Daily Beast, he answered, "Grudges" in a rather crotchety interview Wednesday. Let's hope he doesn't read NPR contributor John Freeman's review of his latest book.Claire Vaye Watkins beat out Junot Diaz for the Story Prize on Wednesday. Watkins is the author of Battleborn, a short story collection — and the daughter of Paul Watkins, of Manson Family fame.In other prize news, the U.K.'s Folio Society will sponsor a literary awardworth 40,000 pounds that is expected to compete with the Booker Prize. But, unlike the Booker, this prize will be open to Americans.Alisa Sniderman, in an essay for the Los Angeles Review of Books,argues in favor of reading Vladimir Nabokov apolitically: "History does lurk in the wings of Nabokov's fiction, but he never gives it center stage." (Although he did once say, charmingly, in a Paris Review interview, "It is not improbable that had there been no revolution in Russia, I would have devoted myself entirely to lepidopterology and never written any novels at all.")You can now enjamb your tweets.
The iPad Mini (stylized and marketed as iPad mini) is a mini tablet computer designed, developed, and marketed by Apple Inc. It was announced on October 23, 2012, as the fifth major product in the iPad line and the first to feature a reduced screen size of 7.9 inches, in contrast to the standard 9.7 inches. It features similar internal specifications as the iPad 2, including its display resolution.
It was released on November 2, 2012 in nearly all of Apple's markets.
Speculation about the iPad Mini began as early as April 2012, as competition rose from 7" devices such as the Kindle Fire and the Nexus 7. Rumors initially suggested it would feature a 7.85" display at 1024 × 768 pixels. It was originally thought to be announced at the Apple Special Event on September 12.
The iPad Mini shipped with iOS 6.0.1. It can act as a hotspot with some carriers, sharing its Internet connection over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or USB, and also access the App Store, a digital application distribution platform for iOS that is developed and maintained by Apple. The service allows users to browse and download applications from the iTunes Store that were developed with Xcode and the iOS SDK and were published through Apple. From the App Store,GarageBand, iMovie, iPhoto, and the iWork apps (Pages, Keynote, and Numbers) are available.
The iPad Mini comes with several pre-installed applications, including Siri, Safari, Mail, Photos, Video, Music, iTunes, App Store, Maps, Notes, Calendar, Game Center, Photo Booth, and Contacts. Like all iOS devices, the iPad can sync content and other data with a Mac or PC using iTunes, although iOS 5 and later can be managed and backed up with iCloud. Although the tablet is not designed to make telephone calls over a cellular network, users can use a headset or the built-in speaker and microphone and place phone calls over Wi-Fi or cellular using a VoIPapplication, such as Skype. The device has dictation, using the same voice recognition technology as the iPhone 4S. The user speaks and the iPad types what they say on the screen provided that the iPad is connected to a Wi-Fi or cellular network.
The device has an optional iBooks application, which displays books and other ePub-format content downloaded from the iBookstore. Several major book publishers including Penguin Books, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster and Macmillan have committed to publishing books for the device. Despite being a direct competitor to both the Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook, both Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble offer e-reader apps for the iPad.
If you are thinking of splashing out on the iPad 4 (more commonly referred to as the iPad with retina display) and you just happen to hang on Apple’s every word, you’d probably believe without question the catchy strap-line of “It’s brilliant. In every sense of the word”. If you’re more the inquisitive type who wants to know a bit more about the fourth iteration of Apple’s arguably most famous gadget before parting with a minimum of $499 for the 16GB WiFi version, read on.
How much is it?
For everyone but the most devoted (and wealthiest) of Apple fans, that’s likely to be one of the very questions. We’ve already said that the most basic 16GB WiFi version comes in at $499 (for black or white models). At the upper end of the scale, for the 64GB WiFi and Cellular version, you’re looking at a hefty $829. Whether you opt for the cheapest or the dearest (or any of the multiple price points in between), you’ll get not only the iPad for your money, but also a Lightening to USB cable and a USB Power Adapter You’ll also enjoy free engraving (handy if you’re buying as a gift or you just like your gadgets to be engraved with your nickname). The iPad ships with a one-year limited warranty and 90-day telephone support. You can purchase an extended warranty which is useful if you’re accident-prone or plan to share your iPad with your kids.

Packonthego really helped us out last month when moving our office from Delray Beach to Lake Park!
iPhone Repair's insight:
So now we have this second office space, packed to the gills with equipment furniture, chairs, and office supplies. Well, we didn’t have time to open the new shop and move everything around down here plus stay amazing with our customer service. We ending up getting hook up with a group of Delray Beach movers called “Pack On the Go” and they were wonderful! Super professional and flexible when it came down to scheduling. I was even surprised to learn that, unlike other companies, do not charge higher prices for the insurance they offer.
