WSN: iHospital Doctors fix Apple products at the iHospital in Shakespeare and Co.

Written by iHospital. Posted in Media Coverage

A new Apple product repair shop has quietly settled into the back of the Shakespeare and Co. Bookstore on 716 Broadway.
iHospital, a repair store not affiliated with the makers of the iPad, opened for business on Sept. 8 and is branding itself as an alternative to the Apple Store.
The store provides a wide range of repair services for iPads, iPhones and Macbooks, from fixing cracked screens to repairing broken headphone jacks. iHospital provides services for Apple product users without the need for an appointment, and most repairs are covered by a one-year warranty.
“I’ve already been here about four or five times,” said Gallatin junior Nina Gruber, who came to the iHospital with her broken iPhone. “[The iHospital doctors] have been really nice. They got the right parts for me and they fixed it — even though when I originally went to the Apple store, they told me that I would need a completely new phone.

Crapgadget: ‘it seemed like a good idea at the time’ edition

Written by iHospital. Posted in Apple News

We’re sure that most inventors out there are genuinely looking to make the world a better place, but the best intentions don’t always produce the best inventions, and while the following gadgets will all likely appeal to someone, somewhere, we can’t exactly recommend, say, an ear-shaped iPhone case or a $300 toothpaste squeezer. But as the saying goes, “one man’s crapgadget is another man’s treasure.”

Read – It’s like a beanbag chair for your iPad! For your lap!
Read – At $300, this toothpaste tube squeezer should pay for itself exactly one day before the sun burns out.
Read – How is this iPhone case different than all other iPhone cases? Simple: it makes it look like you’ve contracted some sort of engorged ear disease. Never get bothered during important phone calls again!
Read – It’s a battery charger! For the ladies!

Android powered 56 percent of smartphones sold in the last three months

Written by iHospital. Posted in Apple News

Nielsen survey

When last we checked in with Nielsen (which was earlier this month) Google’s mobile OS had a sizable lead, powering just under 42-percent of smartphones sold, while Apple had cornered a more than respectable 28-percent of the market. In the few short weeks since, Android has seen its share grow to 43-percent. More interestingly, of the over 25,500 surveyed who had purchased a smartphone in the last three months, a whopping 56-percent chose to go with the Goog. Apple held a steady 28-percent across the board. Big G’s gains came at the expense of RIM (only 9-percent of phones sold in the last three months were BlackBerries) and the ambiguous “other” (Symbian, Windows Phone 7, Bada, MeeGo, etc… accounted for 6-percent of sales). More important than choice of platform though, is that smartphone sales in general are climbing — accounting for 58-percent of all handsets sold in August and driving smartphone penetration to 43-percent.

Apple Again Tops ACSI Customer Satisfaction Survey

Written by iHospital. Posted in Apple News

Apple has topped the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) in the personal computer category for an eighth consecutive year, achieving a score of 87 points. This is Apple’s highest score ever on the index and nine points ahead of second place HP. The ACSI includes tablets in the PC category, and the organization says in its press release, “Apple’s winning combination of innovation and product diversification — including spinning off technologies into entirely new directions — has kept the company consistently at the leading edge.”

Rover App-Controlled Spy Tank gives your cats another reason to hate your iPad (video)

Written by iHospital. Posted in Apple News

If the only thing standing between you and the purchase of an iPad is the existence of a large, remote controlled spy tank, we’ve got some rough news for your bank account. Brookstone is offering up the Rover App-Controlled Spy Tank, an iPad / iPhone / iPod touch-controlled toy tank that can capture audio and video and send it back to your iOS device. The tank can be controlled at distances of up to 200 feet and works around walls. The app is available as a free download and the tank will run you $150. That price includes six AA batteries, but apparently won’t cover therapy for distressed house pets.
