Episode 1585 (1:40:04)

Aaron from Los Angeles, CA

Aaron broke his iPad and wants to know if it's worth repairing. Leo says probably not, and they're not really designed to be fixed. But they're getting cheaper all the time, so it's probably better to just buy a new one.  Keep an eye out for sales, because consumers can get a new iPad for around $300. Here's a link to a refurbished iPad for $239 from Apple. It's great for reading comics!

How about the Kindle Fire Tablet? Leo says they come with a highly customized browser designed to sell you stuff. Can he buy it from Amazon? Leo says he should always buy from the manufacturer. that way he is not buying someone else's problems.
