    iPad 2 Rebirth

    Compliments Apple re: customer service. My iPad 2 (5 years old this August) died last week. From grey screen to black to the iTunes symbol / charging cable display.

    Screen protector ?

    Have not used screen protectors on 3 generations of iPhones. Same with iPad 2 now almost 4 years old. Screen has zero scratches. Like others have said - daily gentle wipe does the trick. AA

    iPad 2 WiFi Problem

    Re: iOS 8 & above. Guess I was one of the unlucky ones. My iPad2 was problem free until the update. All functions including tapping out text have noticeably slowed. Everything takes forever. Apps crash, etc. Happily, WiFi connectivity wasn't affected. I don't disagree that many iPad2 users...

    Thousand Islands park is a 90 minute drive from my location - but it's not the location in the challenge. Too far south. But both share the same connected fresh water system. AA

    Is it the steam vent field at 'Volcano National Park' Hale Mar, Hawaii? AA Edit: I'm guessing what looks like ice is silicate or calcium deposits. But maybe it's ice and therefore not Hawaii.
