How to apply a screen protector?
So, please know that I am not a complete australopithecine. I'm a fairly handy fellah', but applying a screen protector to the iPad has been a very frustrating affair.
I have tried it three times.
Each time the result looks like I made the attempt after two martinis and three Percocet.
I have flawlessly applied screen protectors to my phone, to my iPod Touch, but the sheer acreage of the iPad screen is making the application impossible.
1) I do not live in a NASA approved "clean room".
2) So many bubbles which when I attempt to smooth them out with my most perfectly edge credit card unit, disband, move behind enemy lines, strafe me with sniper fire, and generally refuse to go away.
The first two times I applied a protector they were of the smooth, clear sort and the attempt to remove bubbles marred their surfaces so badly that even were I to have removed the bubbles, the end result would have been terrible to distraction.
This third time was a glare reduction screen protector which got so bad with bubbles that I just pulled it off in frustration, crumpled it, and threw it away in a very Annie Wilkes kind of way. (so embarrassed now)
So, please, anyone... Help? Tips? Tricks? Magic spells? Contracts with Old Scratch?
P.S. I know the screen is sturdy and I am actually pretty good to electronic devices (the back of my 3 year old iPod Touch is still mirror perfect) but I want a glare reduction film to, well.... reduce glare.
