The internet has long been a fan of cats. And what’s not to love? Adorable little fluffballs that they are. Just picture it: you find a cat sitting on a computer, snuggling in between the keyboard and the display…basking in hard drive warmth. Awwww.
But wait! You might be on the verge of a catastrophe. Because under the delicate whiskers, behind those innocent eyes, lurking behind downy fluff is the soul of a wily schemer.
For this installment of The Amazing Break, it’s a round of cats versus computers. Who do you think won?
As part of iFixit’s Community Survey, we collected some amazing stories about how you use, break, and fix your stuff. The stories were too good not to share. So, we started a series of blog posts—The Amazing Break—to document your collective awesomeness.
Of course, Memorial Day is just around the corner. To mark the day, we’ve compiled all the best stories we got from the servicemen, servicewomen, and veterans in our community.
Thanks for doing what you do, fellows. Read the rest of this article »
As part of our first Community Survey, we asked iFixit members to tell us their most epic break stories. You guys delivered in a big way.
Almost 5,000 people gave us the details of their most harrowing repair moments. Of course, this is the iFixit community; we fix things. So, for every break story someone sent us, another person told us about an incredible repair he or she performed.
We enjoyed your repair trials, tribulations, and victories so much, we decided to preserve them for posterity in a series of blog posts. Here’s another installment of The Amazing Break: Read the rest of this article »
Two months ago, we asked the iFixit community to take a survey. We already knew our community was resourceful, opinionated, fiercely independent, and probably good looking. But we wanted more: We wanted to know who you were, what you fixed, and why you repair.
The response was overwhelming. More than 13,000 of you took the survey. We’ll be sharing the results of that survey very soon, but your answers to one question in particular captured our undivided attention: “What is your most epic break story?”
We expected the stories to be good, we just didn’t know they were going to be this good. Almost 5,000 people spilled the gritty details of their most embarrassing, hilarious, creative, harrowing, oh-crap-I-broke-it moments. A lot of the time, you people even came up with amazing MacGyver-esque fixes. We read every single one of those stories. With enthusiasm.
And when you have exclusive access to that much awesome, you just have to share it. Today we are starting a brand new installment of blog posts, which we’re calling “The Amazing Break.” Here’s your first taste: Read the rest of this article »
