iphone battery on fire in a microwave
/ By Jonathan Hawkins / iPhone / 0 Comments

We decided to see what would happen if we took an iPhone 5 battery from a working device and put it into a microwave for a minute or two. You always hear about batteries exploding or catching fire so we decided to take matters into our own hands and put the heat/battery myth to the test. What we saw was pretty awesome!

LG G2 model cracked screen repairs
/ By Jonathan Hawkins / LG / 0 Comments

At RockIT Repairs we specialize in LG G2 cracked screen repairs. We back our LG G2 glass and lcd repairs with a 30 day warranty on parts & labor. We work on all four models of the LG G2. We have seen many issues with the G2 glass quality. Almost any drop that cracks the screen seems to completely render the digitizer usless. It generally will not sense touch after even the smallest crack. We can not only fix and replace the glass on a G2 but we can work on other board level repairs on this device from charging ports to microphone replacement.

Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass 3 Kills Germs

Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass 3  Reviews

Corning Gorilla Glass claims to make the toughest smartphone screen available- are they now making the cleanest screens around?

The new Antimicrobial Gorilla Glass 3 is infused with ionic silver, which has been shown to have inherent antimicrobial properties (by companies like Norwex), and is resistant to mold, mildew, fungi, and bacteria. The addition of the silver does not negatively affect the “mechanical, optical, or dielectric (insulators, or non-conductive material) properties” of the glass itself, and its benefits last the lifetime of the glass.

While there hasn’t yet been a release date mentioned yet, the first device to feature the new, antibacterial Gorilla Glass 3 will be the touchscreens for the room-scheduling The RoomWizard by Steelcase.
