    Tried to replace the battery in my iphone. Seemed to go okay, but won't boot.

    Any advice on where to take it? (Yes, I should have just gone to the iphone shop or replaced it in the first place...)

    I used SimplyFixit at Brunstfield when I got a new battery.

    @iwrats, that looks quite a complex phone, maybe even takes pictures. I use mine just for texts,

    @unhurt that is not a phone, it is a tablet

    @unhorsed - Luckily it wasn't THAT high.

    (is it still breaking the forum rules if it's in hieroglyphics?)

    eta: I found a useful(?) thing.

    There's also the Morningside Mini Mart place opposite the Church Hill Theatre. Probably the sort of thing they could help with.

    Snake? I do not have that feATURE on my phone? maybe Unhorsed does IWRATS?

    Simply fixit in Juni Green charged 90 quid to fix eldests laptop after she sat on it.

    Simply fixit in the Waverley steps about 75 quid to fix an iPad.

    The bruntsfield one I assume similar prices. But surely cheaper to unlock or reboot a phone?

    My phone has evolved past mere Snake. It probably supports some sort of Midgard Serpent game.

    Tetris was tricky but candy crush is a skoosh

    A number of KORG synthesisers and a digital audio workstation on mine. All I need now is talent.

    I lost one year of my life to Asteroids and three to Tetris. Tetris is worse.

    Tetris (played on a Mac LCII into the wee hours while chain smoking Regal Kingsize) was either the only thing that got me through my final honours year in Glasgow or one of the main barriers to me getting through my final honours year in Glasgow.

    We still have our original GameBoy and it still plays Tetris if you're *very* nice to it

    Advance Wars on the GameBoy Advance SP. The most addictive game I've played (after Tetris of course).
