Florida iDoctor traces its origins to 2001, long before the invention of the modern smartphone, and back when most cellphones were still powered by coal. Throughout the years, the company's technicians have adapted well to the ever-evolving world of personal electronics, boasting an intricate knowledge of iPhones, iPads, laptops, and desktop PCs. The Better Business Bureau accredited company, which has an A+ rating, can repair a cracked iPhone screen in less than half an hour and undo water damage with pickup and drop-off service. They handle everything from cleansing viruses from a computer's hard drive to replacing a tablet's broken power button, helping clients breathe new life into their favorite digital companions.
TigerDirect.com's vast virtual warehouse distributes computer parts, software, and gadgetry around the world, backed by their brick-and-mortar stores around the nation. Home to PC and computing experts, the stores dole out repair and advice in equal sums, answering questions about virus issues such as pop-ups or nasty computer-sneezing fits. Founded on the principles of putting the consumer first, TigerDirect offers same-day shipping and business-to-business sales, and they boast a spyware-tight website security guarantee that will cover customer liability up to $50.
Founded by an Apple-trained Mac Genius, iMergency returns iPhones, iPods, iPads, and Mac computers to working order with a suite of repair services. The fully licensed and insured staff fixes cracked glass and LCD screens, swaps in fresh batteries, and performs chassis color conversions. The technicians are also well versed in the ways of Mac computers and can install upgrades such as hard drives, RAM, or a digital abacus that counts all the way up to 100.
The computer engineers at Respectable PC Services outfit their customers with the equipment and knowledge they need to get the most out of modern technology. The staff can improve performance with hardware or software upgrades, recover lost data, vanquish viruses, and even build custom personal computers. As an added assurance, services are backed by a 30-day warranty, and a six-month warranty protects all items purchased new.
Before earning a set of scrubs and the title of Doctor of iDevice, each employee at iHospital—featured in the The Wall Street Journal—must first pass a series of technical certifications. Just as real doctors specialize in either plaster or papier-mâché leg casts, the technicians focus their abilities specifically on Apple devices, including iPhones and iPods, performing many repairs in minutes. The store also carries a range of accessories from brands such as LifeProof, OtterBox, and Speck.
