Danes 'prove' sudden iBook death syndrome* [ http://www.theregister.com/2007/05/03/danish_consumer_complaints_board_claim_ibook_defect/ ]
Kinda nice to see this confirmation. It's been slashdotted, and from there, there was a link to someone's experience repairing his iBook with fire.

Yes, fire. [ http://geektechnique.org/projectlab/726/diy-obsolete-ibook-logic-board-repair ]

Yes, there are pictures.

XD Here's to hoping I'll never have to try this.........

*Actually, this issue has been confirmed by fans everywhere. It just never really found its way into the news...

I do believe my iBook's going to die again, and very soon.

blah blah blah... )

Bleh. Time to study. ECE210 exam tomorrow, and I need a 95%. Or more. Wish me luck, I think I'll need it.

Oh, yeah, so this will make it the... what, 7th logic board issue? I really wish I knew why...
Magic - definitely not the problem. Have reasons.

Static discharges that flicker from my finger to the metal screws under the iBook, or the battery locking circle. But those should be grounded, right?

The way I handle my iBook - I have a tendency to pull it out of my messenger bag with one hand - grabbing the center of the iBook - I wandered around a bit, and one possibility someone else noted for their TiBook death was that a flexing board/case contacting the motherboard might have caused the frying. It's a possibility for me.

The fact that I carry it around everywhere. But really - don't see why that should be a problem.

Yay. iBook arrive this morning, just in time for class. An interesting... new thing was replaced: Spiral Tubing was apparently added. Not too sure what this is, but I grabbed a copy of the iBook service manual and intend to look at it.

Anyways, to class I go. Xanga flooding of my posts will occur soon.

[edit] Need to check and see what was changed. My preferences were killed and set to default, I think - at least they changed my background, as well as the setting to hold fn before using any of the function keys as system modifier buttons - such as contrast and volume.

'cause now they've actually attached my e-mail address to my computer, so thus, I actually get informed when things happen.

Yes, the dates and times are ahead of time, kinda. Apple's in CA, I'm in IL. :D

Two business days... I hope it gets here by tomorrow... ::cross his fingers:: Then it'd actually be a three day turn-around. Gods, that would rock, and it'd be a new record too.
