    When I bought my MBA in 2011 it definitely was the better choice considering speed, price, screen etc but these new MBPs look great. This ol' girl should last a few more years though, who knows what the MBPs will be like then!

    Safari is terrible at everything. Use Chrome.

    Broke the screen on my iPhone 5 this weekend. Dropped it walking back to my condo and was without a case. Must have hit at just the right angle as the whole thing is a shattered mess. This is my third iPhone model and first time to have something like this happen. :(

    Wasn't able to get an appointment at the Apple store today, but I may swing by another one Tuesday. Are they still offering front glass replacements for the 5? I know that was an option on the 4. I may also look into swapping it out for a refurbished model depending on the out of pocket cost.

    Also open to the idea of a 3rd party repair shop, but am a little hesitant to go that way versus getting Apple to look at it. Anyone have experience with this?

    I dropped mine in a river. Battery fired as well as water between screen and glass. Replacement for glass + screen was $100 and seemed a common fix. (I opted to just replace the battery and the water on the screen dried up the next day.)

    My 4s still works but barely. After 4-5 near fatal drops the screen is still functional except that I can't click icon's on certain parts of the screen (can't log into some apps and tinder isn't much use b/c I can't chat or change my photos). One of the speakers doesn't work. Thanks to these developments, I'm in the market for a new phone.

    Welcome to Apple's planned obsolescence. My wifi kicked the bucket just as the 5 came out.
