“I dropped it from the third story of a building” was his calm reply. Geoff owns a general contracting firm in the Boston area and had the unfortunate occurrence of dropping his iPad 2. A physics experiment testing the rate of gravity, 9.8m/s^2 for trivia purposes, is usually at hand when an object is dropped from about 30 feet in the air. Both he and I were surprised that the shattered screen and a couple of dents were the only affliction it possessed. I told him it would only take about 2 hours to have it fixed and ready to go. When he returned, the only evidence of the tragic events that had transpired earlier in the day were a couple of scratches on the aluminum frame of the device. Not only did Geoff not have to risk cutting himself on the shattered glass, he did not have to replace his iPad 2 and saved at least $200 in the process.
Sorry for the poor picture quality….
