Make Your Own iPhone?

This man’s odyssey to make his own iPhone in Shenzhen is fascinating. I really got caught up in this project.

I do wonder how you get to the App Store and iTunes with this, though the main point is he made his own phone.

So Satisfied

IMG_20170725_204950

As it turns out, this mundane object has given me a great deal of satisfaction. As I said last week, my power cord broke while I’m in Indonesia, far from an Apple store or Best Buy. However, some YouTubers showed me that these cords can be fixed. I asked around and sure enough a student knew where to get this fixed. He refused to take any money, but I get this repair cost less than even the new generic cords that sell for $25. This sort of savings really satisfies me.

An ugly entry for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge.

What’s Trust?

Trust is when your iPad that’s not that old goes into a coma and recovery looks bleak. You post a message on Facebook and a few friends respond with suggestions including one that says I should put my iPad in a plastic bag and then put it in the freezer and you do. (To be continued.)

What example do you have?
