Need an iPhone 6 screen repair?

What do Power Surges do to computers?
Your computer is made up of a lot of powerful electronic parts which have to work on different electric signals to achieve their own maximum performance. It's probably not what you think about when you power your computer on but most desktop's have to route 4-5 different kinds of signals throughout the parts in your computer. The part that does this job in your computer is called a power supply. Take a look below and see what happens when you put too much power into your components. This happens during power surges, overheating, or just when your computer parts degrade past their life expectancy. First you can see the small cylinder called a capacitor blowing up. High quality motherboards are made with solid state capacitors that don't rely on last generation fluids to ...
The Auto industry is about to begin a revolution
If you've been following our blog, then you're probably as excited as we are for Apple CarPlay to hit the market. We know that Google has developed their own companion software named "Android Auto" but it's not as far along as Apple Car Play. Recently an article was leaked on Macrumors that features information on GM chief "infotainment" officer Phil Abram stating that upcoming Chevy and GM Chrysler models will offer full compatibility in "more models than any other brand."
For the 2016 model year, Chevrolet will offer Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility in more models than any automotive brand. The 14 Chevrolet models include the all-new 2016 Cruze, which will debut on June 24. Cruze is Chevrolet’s best-selling passenger car, with more than 3 million sold since launch.

Tips for Protecting your iPhone
Summer is here, which means partying, outgoing, and visiting of beaches and places of fun/recreation outside. These things are great but they can be dangerous environments for your phones. Zombie Techs wants to remind you to take extra care of your phones this summer and below are a few tips on how to do that.
Get a protective casing. iPhones and other popular smart phones are susceptible to water damage like any other electronics. If you're out on/by the water often then buying a waterproof casing is widely considered to be a practical investment. Some cases, like lifeproof cases offer certain degrees of protection against scenarios where your phone might get wet or have water spilled on it. If you're not around the water but maybe you've become more active playing sports outside, consider getting ...
Big Oil will support Apple Pay
Chevron tweeted the other day that they're beginning incorporating Apple pay into their available payment options. This will be a monumental transition in the way we do business in America. Currently we consume more than any other country in the world meaning that we will set an unprecedented record of conversions in terms of sales through mobile devices. Speculating on the recent Sony hacks, the repercussions are worrisome in fear of a potential Apple leak/hack. Who is to say that one is not already under way?
Chevron and Texaco oil were two of the biggest proponents of Apple Pay when it was announced. Though it remains unclear what the potential lasting benefits of the relationship are, speculators believe that it will create a larger field of view and analytics for oil companies which currently have ...

Watch out for online hackers
With the huge rise of searches swarming around the words "ebola", "ebola virus", and other related terms, a huge source of exploitable searches are taking place every hour. Hackers and virus developers are eager to get in your face with their software for the purpose of stealing your identity and financial information.
Right now many users are receiving fake e-mails containing "critical information" about the ebola virus. What they end up receiving is a subscription for a bogus website that looks authentic and features lots of seemingly helpful information about the ebola virus. That's when they get you. Once you subscribe you get redirected to a major news network's homepage while your credentials are shipped off to the virus developers private e-mail.
"If you are not sure of the email's legitimacy then don't respond to it, and ...
If you've been holding off on picking up StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm (or, for that matter, Wings of Liberty) out of poverty, cheapness or a plain old lack of interest, today may be a good day to reconsider your position.
Some games get cheap in a hurry and others hold their value really well. Blizzard games tend to be in the latter camp but sooner or later even they get knocked down a notch or two, and today that day has come for StarCraft II.
StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm has been reduced on Battle.net to $20 for the standard edition or $35 for the digital deluxe release, while Wings of Liberty—which apparently didn't rate the deluxe treatment—isalso $20. "This is a permanent drop in the price for both Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm to $19.99," StarCraft II Community Manager ...
