Best Independent iPod Repair, August 2008
iPod death: a harrowing eventuality of modern life. When the sad-face icon appears on your screen, resist the urge to stuff your broken mp3 player into the obsolete-gadget drawer or to shell out for the latest model. Instead, visit Joe Kempe at the iPod Repair Clinic. During his four years in business, Kempe has successfully operated on hundreds of dead batteries, stalled hard drives, cracked screens, and kaput headphone jacks, often in less than 20 minutes and for less than what online retailers charge. Even Apple agrees: Southern California stores regularly hand out his cards.
