My iPad died. It simply won't charge. I've tried what they call the "two fingered hand job" 
but it won't wake up. Does anyone know how to revive a dead Ipad mini or should
I sell my 600 dollar only pleasure in the whole world toy to amazon for 50 bucks?

Also still no India, for my friends who are wondering. And no food for the one hawk I have left
so I'll probably have to sell her in a couple weeks. But apart from that things are fantastic!

Just to add to the suggestions, when checking out TV's, pay attention to the (probably) plastic surrounding the screen. Does it have a glossy finish? If your room where the TV will be situated has a lot of natural light or is just well-lit period, the glare may be quite distracting while watching. Pet peeve of mine, so I always look for flat finishes.

Good luck!

most manufacturers make a decent set

i like sharp, samsung, lg, and sony

before i drop a grand or so on a tv i go and look

walk into a best buy and look at the wall of sets

look for the best picture (a good place to start)

talk to a rep and ask about incentives and returns

also i'd go a little bigger than you think you need

if space is an issue, consider wall mount (sets are very thin and very lightweight now)

i don't use smart features, i have an external box for that like roku

there are also several buying guides online

4k is coming soon (or inputs that upscale your feed to the 4k standard) so that may be a consideration

my next purchase will probably be a 4k rig

good luck

On the flip side, I picked up a Panasonic plasma TV in 2008 that is still beautiful despite being disconnected and moved a bit by thieves (they got it to the front door but were interrupted) and then moved to a different home by uHaul, and then carried by dolly up a damned steep hill in the mist by yours truly. Looks better than the Samsung I bought a couple of years ago.

Of course, it's heavy as hell and generates enough heat that I can make coffee on the top of it. But still...

Sorry to hear about your condition.  Surgery on humans is outside my scope of experience.  Are the carpenter ants in your esophagus or bowel?
