iPhones are known to be a lot of things - design savvy, sleek, powerful. But one thing they aren't known for is their ability to hold their own after taking a nasty fall or being dunked in a bathtub. This isn't to say that the delicate nature of these devices means that they aren't worth it. No, they just need a little extra TLC in order to stay in solid working condition and Digital Remedy Repair is here to help.
If your iPhone isn't staying in perfect shape, it's probably because of one (or more!) of these five catastrophic scenarios you're constantly putting your iPhone in.
1. You stick your iPhone in your back pocket and accidentally sit on it.Think #bendgate is all hype? It's not. These suckers can bend. While that might not seem terrible in and of itself, a bent frame puts pressure on the screen and can cause it to crack or pop out, and if you already have a small crack to begin with, it can make it spread quickly.

It is no secret that the world is in love with Charleston, her history and her beauty. Now at Charleston Krewe, located on historic King Street, everyone can enjoy the Southern city’s iconic prints on locally inspired bow ties, pocket squares, belts, dog collars, jewelry and more. One of Charleston Krewe’s founders, Cecile Hardy, saw a niche for high-quality, Charleston-inspired products at great price points, something she calls “attainable luxury.” Hardy has already been remarkably successful with NOLA Couture, established 2006 in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
A New Orleans native (who spent a summer at the College of Charleston) and well-versed with unique cultures, Hardy joined forces with her brother, Joe Reiss, a College of Charleston graduate and Charleston resident, Elizabeth Hiers, to open Charleston Krewe, sister brand of NOLA Couture. The store opened its doors on March 14, 2015. With four partners in the company (including director of retail, Lauren Hozey) having attended the College of Charleston, the connection between New Orleans and Charleston was made immediately. “Krewe” refers to a fun social club that sponsors parties, balls and parades in New Orleans, especially during Mardi Gras. Thus, “Charleston Krewe” was the perfect name to display the mélange of charm of the two cities.
Hardy said, “our customers feel a sense of confidence and pride while wearing our products. ‘Show your Charleston pride in a Rainbow Row bow tie’ about sums up our mantra.” According to Charleston Krewe managing partner, Reiss, “our Charleston-centric designs made in the South have been well-received.” From Rainbow Row, palmettos, the pineapple fountain and shrimp boats to “Ducks and Bucks” for the sportsmen in your lives, there is something for everyone. With the brand’s wide age range of customers, kids, ladies and gentlemen alike can sport an emblematic design year-round.
Charleston Krewe is continuously adding more iconic Charleston prints to the line. And a portion of the proceeds of certain designs (like the Rainbow Row prints benefit One80 Place and the sea turtle print benefits the South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Rescue Program) go right back into the community.
“Charleston Krewe products are an expression of one’s personality and love for Charleston and the Lowcountry,” said Reiss. Visit their shop at 363 King Street in the King Street Fashion District.
What’s the difference between a coaster and a cocktail napkin? Not something Cesi thinks about a lot - until ibu commissions hundreds of handwoven cocktail napkins from her. When ibu founder, Susan Hull Walker, met Cesi last December, she had traveled many miles through the mountains to present her with piles of her work. The work was beautiful, but the finished item was neither coaster nor cocktail napkin, but something in between.
It’s one of the hardest things ibu encounters when working with artisans in other cultures: what to do when your designs get lost in translation? Susan went back up the mountain with Cesi and met the other weavers in her cooperative. She saw their looms at work, talked through their challenges and successes, and told them the crunchy squares would not work where she lives.
"We are a team. A business. A movement in the world, and we must work together in excellence. This is not a charity. It is a collaboration of equals. We have to get it right." By that afternoon she was back on the loom, determined to make it right.
