Every Picture Tells a Story – Contest!

It happens.

Screens break.

We know, because for over 14 years, we have been repairing broken Apple devices. iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, even Apple Watch and iPod … these ingenious, portable devices are, by their very nature, in harm’s way.

There are countless ways to break a screen, and there’s a story behind every one.

“I was wearing it while jogging and tripped.”

“It was either drop the baby or drop the iPad.” (they made the right choice)

“I was listening to music and left my earbuds on the keyboard when I closed the case.”

“I set my phone on top of the car and forgot until I heard it hit the street.”

“I fell asleep and my phone slid down and landed on top of my MacBook (breaking both screens!).”

“I was taking a picture of the sunset, when a bird suddenly started swooping on me! I ran and finally threw my phone at it in self defense!”

We have heard so many stories. Some are pretty common and then, there are some pretty unusual ones! Sometimes the story is so good, it’s almost worth the broken device.

The point is, that for every busted screen there is a real person. No matter how it happened, we like to hear about it  (only because we can relate AND we can help!). It also helps lessen the pain of repair costs.  And who knows, maybe your story will help some other poor soul down the line who thinks their cat is the first one to bat their phone onto the tile floor.

So, in the interest of healing a community (ok, that’s an overreach, but our intentions are good!) TechRestore is hosting a contest. The randomly chosen winner will receive a Super Nano Pro kit for iPhone or iPad (a leader in screen protection and a $19.99 value!) and EVERYONE who participates can take $5 off a screen repair.

Here’s how it works:

  • Now through September 14th on FaceBook or Instagram
  • Post a picture of your broken screen and tell us the story about how it happened (in a few words). If you can’t post it, bring it to our Louisville location and we’ll post it!
  • Use the hashtag #TRbrokenscreenstory or #TechRestorescreenstory
  • Tag “TechRestore” on FaceBook or “iTechRestore” on Instagram
  • Share this contest with your friends!

Of course, there are stories that really are too traumatic to recall, so please, don’t relive it if that’s the case. But, if your story is funny or ordinary or nonexistent (we had a customer come in once with a terribly shattered screen … protector .. the screen was actually fine and we put a new tempered glass on for her anyway!)  then please, by all means, share it!! You may be helping someone else who’s feeling embarrassed about their own broken screen.

If you haven’t yet repaired the screen in question, let TechRestore take care of that for you (and take FIVE BUCKS off for participating!). Not only have we seen it all and repaired it all, we have a LIFETIME guarantee on iPhone repairs and at least a one year warranty on the rest. We also sell screen protectors and cases that are much more functional than wrapping your device up in bubble wrap!

PS – Mention that you have participated in the contest to get the discount. We will compile the hashtags and tags for the Super Nano Pro winner. This offer cannot be combined with any other discount – you must post a picture to be eligible (if you bring it in, we can post it for you!).

TechRestore vs Siri Where it Really Matters

Oh, Siri, we love you!

“I value you.”

Well, she is the Sassiest AI Assistant. She first came to us on the iPhone 4s in October 2011 and  “Wowed” us with her weather telling, message answering, music playing and seemingly endless pun-filled answer giving.

Siri has hung out and had wild adventures with celebrities. Some people even make Siri a full time occupation.

Deep learning networks that map your habits and preferences are what makes Siri so smart. Some say that soon she will know you better than anyone (yikes!). It will be a while still before she (or he, depending on your ‘personality’ choice) responds in a really conversational manner. Apple has a large team that works on improving Siri constantly. She works across many platforms and has slightly varying levels of skill on each one.

This Fall, with iOS 12, Siri will utilize Workflow. You will be able to organize a series of tasks: playlists, HomeKit actions, send messages, check itinerary, etc. So you give one command and Siri sets a whole scenario in motion.

And Siri is wonderful! She can make you smile and answer questions and send messages for you. But …

She can’t see you smile, or shake your hand or listen to your concerns. She can’t repair your Apple devices and she doesn’t remember how long you’ve  been working on a particular issue.

You’ve probably guessed that we’re going to tell you who WILL fulfill all those gaps

TechRestore, of course!

We’re here to help with problems that require natural, human intelligence! We’ve been in the Apple repair business for over 14 years and our techs not only hold multiple Apple Certifications but have a combined 50+ years of hands on experience. One of our favorite things is to spend time getting to know our customers and dazzling you with our top tier service (before, during and after!).

So, if you’re having trouble with your iPad, iPhone, iMac, MacBook, MacPro, Mac Mini, Apple Watch … let’s just say, “Anything Apple!”, come see the Pros at TechRestore. Our staff is friendly, our store inviting and we sing better than Siri (so we’ve been told by the Sassy Assistant herself!).
