The unfortunate has happened. You are sitting at your desk and you turn around. Spinning back to throw your hand back to the keyboard you quickly forget that there is a drink sitting directly next to your brand new Macbook Air. SPLASH! You are now in absolute FULL PANIC MODE! AHHHHH!
We’re going to explain a couple quick steps that you have to immediately do in order to increase your chances of survival, and well, if you don’t take these steps, we’re going to let you know exactly how we can help.
- First step after spilling a drink is to unplug your device. You want to make sure you cut all power going to the computer. If there is a current going through the laptop, you can short it out.
- Turn off the power. This should go without saying, but you would be amazed at how often we see people leaving the power on.
- With the screen still open, flip the laptop upside down. The main reason for this is to hopefully prevent the liquid from seeping further and further into the computer and getting to the logic board. You want to leave the screen open so that the liquid does not drain onto the screen. TRY TO COMPLETE STEPS 1-3 AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLY. FIRST 10 SECONDS.
- Remove the battery. Battery still carries a current, you have to cut all ties with electricity as fast as possible.
- With the computer upside down, gently dab the area with a paper towel.
- DO NOT TRY TURNING IT ON FOR 24-48 HOURS, IF AT ALL PRIOR TO HAVING A PROFESSIONAL LOOK AT IT
If you follow these simple steps, your chances increase significantly in saving your macbook or PC laptop from imminent doom. Fingers crossed and positive energy and you may have a survivor.
In comes iFixYouri. If this unfortunate event happens to you, we HIGHLY recommend sending it in for a proper macbook water damage repair.
With our service, you will rest assured that it is in good hands. We have an extremely high success rate, over 95%, due to the fact that we not only are able to properly clean the logic boards of all major models of Apple and PC computers, but we also have the ability to offer full logic board repair.
When we receive your device in house, we will strip down all the major components and make sure they are all properly cleaned. When water spills on an electronic device, mineral deposits are left after the once it begins to dry. It’s these mineral deposits that cause corrosion and cause chips and circuits to short out. First step with a water damaged device is always cleaning of all the components, including the logic board. Once we know all components are clean, we run a full diagnostics on the computer, testing each component one by one. Often times just the cleaning will get you back up to good, working condition. Some cases we see that the computer needs a new keyboard, and sometimes we see that the logic board did suffer catastrophic failure, where it does require board level rework. This type of rework is not something that can easily be done at home, as it requires extremely qualified and skilled technicians and expensive machinery. This combination has made it so that iFixYouri as a company can repair nearly every water damaged macbook and macbook pro that comes through our doors on a daily basis. We carry the highest success rate in the industry, over 95%.
We do not recommend putting your computer with dried rice. Unlike a cell phone, it will leave a lot of residue in areas that will be near impossible to clean.
No two water damaged computers are ever the same. By taking these measures listed, and doing it quickly, you can significantly increase your chances of having a computer that remains functioning even after water spilled on it.
If you have a question on any of our macbook or macbook pro water damage repair services, feel free to call 888-494-4349 or email us at email@example.com today.
We’ve decided to become a bit “anti-recycling” here at iFixYouri. Now not with all things. We’re still firm believers in recycling soda cans and water bottles, but lets bring things to a reality point here; with certain things REPAIRING is really better for the environment than recycling! Use, repair, re-use.
iPads are a great example of why you should still repair, versus discard, and buy a new one. The iPad 1 to the iPad 2 had quite a few changes. Apple added a camera, a sleeker back housing, a faster processor, and a small myriad of other features that we all need so so badly and we’d have a hard time living without.
I recently broke my iPad 2 and was left scratching my head and trying to decide what I should do. Should I go out and buy the latest and greatest iPad 4? Or should I stick with the old and trusty iPad 2? I stopped into my local store just to give it a test run. It felt the same and looked identical. The only real difference I could see was the processor was a little quicker. This to me just isn’t enough to justify spending $500 on a new device vs $159.99 on an ipad repair that virtually looked the same and still ran all the same apps. The differences between models of all these crazy devices that have been coming out recently are so minor it’s so hard to tell the difference. To me, the retina ipad looks just like my ipad 2.
We live in a consumers market and in a consumers market, we’re often driven to replace and recycle. We’re trying to change that mentality. We’re trying to get people to realize that repairing is really the way to go! Recycle your newspaper and cardboard boxes. Recycle your water bottles and beer cans! Reuse and repair your devices!
Every year millions of devices get thrown into our landfill. We’re more concerned about this than most people are, as we are a repair business, and we’re trying to play our roll in order to minimize the impact that these devices have on our planet when their lifespan has come to an end.
We work with a tight group of recycling companies that can handle responsibly disposing of devices, should a device finally get to the point of non-repair.
We’d like to help. And we’d like you to help. Put some thought into it and some care. If you have any questions about repair or recycling, give us a call at 888-494-4349 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The much-awaited iOS and Android version of Microsoft Office suite may be around the corner. Online reports speculate that the productivity suite may be available on the iOS and Android mobile platforms in the next year.
There may be some strings attached to this though, since it is generally presumed that the iOS and Android apps of the Office suite may not be fully functional, without having to subscribe to Microsoft’s own Office 365 cloud service.
Microsoft Mobile Office Applications
From a Verge report citing unnamed sources, the yet to be released Office apps may only provide their users with the option to view their Word, PowerPoint and Excel documents. Each user may have to subscribe to the Microsoft Office 365 service, in order to edit his or her documents on the go.
Though the Verge report did not state or include a price for the subscription, a Microsoft Office Home Premium product’s 365 subscription generally costs $99.99 per annum for five user licenses. The mobile version of the subscription may, however, not cost as much as this.
App Release Date
According to the Verge report, the iOS version of Microsoft Office may be released towards the end of February or in early March 2013, while the Android version may be released in the month of May 2013.
The first date correlates with some earlier online reports on the release of the mobile Office apps. This includes a Czech Republic Microsoft product manager revealing a release date of March 2013 for the apps, and a published photo by The Daily, supposedly claiming to be a photograph of the mobile Office application running on an iPad, both of which were refuted and/or denied by Microsoft.
Mobile Office Launch
There were some predictions, too, that Microsoft would launch a mobile Office product at its SharePoint conference in Las Vegas, based on the assumption that Microsoft may want to position its mobile Office app as an enterprise product.
Presently Android and iOS users may use Microsoft OneNote app for note-taking but will have to rely on other third party apps like QuickOffice and Documents To Go, to read and edit their Office documents.
As great as apps are for our day-today operations, having a smartphone or other device that is out of commission due to unforeseen accidents such as a cracked screen or water damage may render such a tool useless. If your device is in need of repair, seeking out a professional such as iFixYouri can be a solid recourse.
The 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro is a gorgeous device and has already won ear-splitting applause from users. Nevertheless, there are hitches and for a laptop costing as much as this does, you could not be blamed for being disappointed with technical problems.
Potential MacBook Issues
As great of a device as Apple has developed with its latest MacBook Pro, it seems almost inevitable that some glitches should accompany such a product.
Note: For those that may have more severe issues than a mere glitch and may require actual MacBook repair, seeking out experts such as iFixYouri is always a sound decision.
So without any further ado, let’s take a look some of the issues:
The Retina screen is gorgeous. You cannot help but fall in love with it. However, there aren’t many websites that take advantage of Retina at this point.
Testing the graphic performance of four different laptops with a heavy effect video file uncovered that the 15-inch Pro takes an average 20 seconds less than the 13-inch to render the file, whereas the 13-inch Air takes an average 10 seconds more than the 13-inch Pro to render the same file. Now when we consider that the Retina 13 costs $850 more than the 13-inch Air and around $200 less than the Pro 15, it does raise a few uneasy questions about the wisdom of investing in a Retina 13.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro does come with a wonderful visual design, awesome trackpad and keyboard, a compressed unibody design, and yet its graphic performance is not too superior to the MacBook Air. You also experience a minor slowdown when you use a hi-res setting.
The laptop is a bit smaller than the 15-inch Pro and way thicker than the 13-inch Air.
Battery Life and Sound
The battery life, which is around 3 hrs 15 mins, is good enough and the sound is excellent, too. However, there seems to be a soft echo to the sound, especially when you are listening to dialogue. The keyboard and the trackpad are still the best you are going to find in a laptop.
Should One Buy the New MacBook Pro?
Clearly, it’s hard to say that the new MacBook Pro is not a good investment. The laptop is still so much better that other laptops, performance-wise. And since it costs only fractionally more than its 13-inch counterpart, it is hard to see why you would not invest in the 15-inch if you are comfortable with its slightly-bigger size.
