re: Apple Watch overheated and “exploded” - Duckismyspiritanimal
[quote]Spent an hour and 15 min on phone. They are having me take it to Best Buy to be repaired for free. I explained to them it wasn’t repairable. They said let them decide that. [/quote] Sounds like bestbuy is going to box it up and ship it for you. If they are saying that the repair is for fre...

re: Can't verify Apple ID.... - Duckismyspiritanimal
Is the phone number the same? Regardless, I would recommend reaching out to AppleCare over the phone. There are (or at least used to be) a few levers that can use on the backend to place an account in recovery to eventually reclaim things, but they would be the ones that can best support you. Thi...

Just wanted to add that though Oregon is +1, all the shuffling will likely skew either the 4th district (Kurt Schrader) or 5th district (Peter Defazio should he retire) to the right giving a second republican seat in Oregon...

re: iPhone 8 Plus stuck in a loop of dying and turning back on, but won’t catch a charge - Duckismyspiritanimal
I’ve seen these symptoms is a past life, there are a few things to try. First, using a higher wattage charger (20w instead of 5w) may get the phone to start up. Also, check that there isn’t debris in the lightning port preventing the phone from receiving the charge. Lastly try placing the phone into...

re: iPad Pro 12.9 Accessories for Pick Up Truck - Duckismyspiritanimal
Most any Bluetooth keyboard will work fine. You may want to look and see if there is one with a trackpad if you want to use a mouse as well. I don’t have any specific recommendations, other than maybe starting with the something like the Logitech K380 or K480 would just be $30-40 and see if that’s t...

re: Ergonomic Chairs - back pain - worth it? - Duckismyspiritanimal
I have the Herman Miller Embody. For me, the point of an ergo chair is that it’s not so much about being comfortable in the chair, It’s that I feel great after 8-10 hours of sitting in the chair. My previous chair which was some 8-10 year old Office Depot chair gave me back pain as I started working...

re: ipad air 4th gen vs ipad 8th gen - Duckismyspiritanimal
I have the new Air and I’m really liking it. From what you are sharing storage and processor is not really important. Instead more important is the display and the FaceTime camera quality (Which is dramatically better with the air). It seems probable that the air will be supported for longer as o...
