iFixit regularly dismantles new techproducts to check how difficult they are to repair by an average DIYers. Aftertaking Apple’s iPad Air apart to its individual bits, they found that the tablet’s glass can be easily broken during the dismantling, earning iPad Air such a low score for ’repairability.’
As is the case with all iPads, iPad Air has a front panel that is glued to the rest of the device, making it very difficult to take apart without breaking the glass. In addition, IFixit checked the device’s battery and found that it is extremely difficult to replace, the most difficult of all Apple’s devices.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
