    Core2Duo faster than A8X?

    Always assumed my iPad Air 2 to be faster than my MBA 2010. Because Geekbench says so. But today noticed my trusted laptop is scrolling through a long entry with images in Notes like a breeze. Edit is also completely responsive. The same note on the Air 2 requires some patience instead...

    iPad Air iPad Air 2 battery replacement. Is it salvageable?

    Really liked the iFixit kit. Had everything right there. 5 stars! They said it was difficult, but I'd rate it as darn near impossible. I worked at it for over 3 hours, and had a few hiccups, but nothing earth shaking. I thought... This is what I have left. *Something* didn't go right, and the...

    iPad Air iPad Air 2 display not flush after new battery installed

    After I changed the battery on my iPad Air 2 I noticed that the adhesive tape I used doesn't make the screen flush with the body. It sits maybe a 0.2 mm to low, besides the area to the right of the home button which is "popping" a bit up. I seems like all the pre-cut strips etc. are all crap...

    iPad Air iPad Air 2 battery life after change.

    I've had my iPad Air 2 for several years and used it a lot. Recently I noticed that the battery life was starting to decline (750 cycles). So I decided to change to a new battery myself since the cost at Apple is 5X what a battery costs. Anyhow, after changing the battery and having done two...
