I recently blogged about breaking my Ipad on St. Patrick's Day. I contacted Apple, paid for the fix with my credit card, and waited. First they sent me a well-padded box for shipping it to them. Actually, it arrived the day after I called. I guess the whole process from start to finish took about a week. I did not get my original Ipad mini back; I could have, but it would have taken longer. I chose to have a rebuilt one sent in its place.
Evidently the battery in my old one was getting tired, because the new one holds a charge at least twice as long. So I'm happy about that.
Once I had it in my hot little hands, I wanted to see if there was a way to assure that my clumsiness wouldn't make me go through this costly process again.
Several people on Facebook recommended the Otterbox, a case that protects devices such as mine. I took them at their word and ordered one.
At least I am trying to protect it.
Life is full of questions, isn't it? One doesn't always know whether her decisions are right.
