I personally really like iFixit. They provide the most detailed and well written guides, many of which I have used. Granted I was working on older devices, and no one is likely going to be repairing their latest gen devices. Nevertheless, my favorite thing iFixit provides are their teardowns. Even if I'm never going to be taking apart my new iPhone, I'm still very curious to see what's all inside and how it's designed and put together. So to all you haters out there, I don't know what your problem is with iFixit, but no need to bash a company that provides quality information and is arguably the best at it.

Years ago I replaced the casing around the keyboard of my iBook. A couple years ago I replaced the hard drive in my iMac. Not everyone gets AppleCare and some people like fixing their own computers. I also find tear downs interesting. I appreciate the occasional ifixit article.

I'm not happy with their support though, I was advised on facebook to log a support request in the app, and I never heard anything back even though it's 3 weeks ago now. But I won't press the matter because the issue is gone.
By the way here's a picture of mine before it mysteriously fixed itself:
Also an early adopter by the way, I backed the project on day 1, and because I ordered a black one it was shipped in the second (international) batch.
