By the way we found this Amazon item useful when recording the Twitter Influencer event lst week at NatWest Bank:

Cracked Tablet/Phone Solution

I clumsily pushed put my tablet into my small dinky handbag just to hear it crack and so that sent me off looking for help and advice. See below:

Fixing cracked Tablet and Phone Screens quickly and easily

Published on May 18, 2014

With 99 cent tools ONLINE vendors shipped for free, was able to disassemble and with the help of a new razor blade to sever the glued screen from the frame, removed the old cracked screen with a little effort. If we can fix screens, we can fix you.

Treating yourself to a new gadget can be so exciting that it’s easy to forget just how much you’re spending, particularly when the toy is a shiny smartphone or tablet that you’ve opted to pay for over a lengthy contract.

But you’ll get a stark reminder of the value when your gizmo is lost, damaged or stolen – you could be facing a loss of hundreds or even thousands of pounds.

That’s why it’s a good idea to invest in some insurance: a few pounds spent now could save you big in the future. Here’s our guide to choosing the right insurance for your electronics.

Because according to new research, the average Brit has six bust appliances or gadgets that they continue to use simply because either they can’t afford to replace them (according to 21% of those polled by, or because the gadget was actually fine if ‘used in a certain way’ (11%).

Most of us have experienced that unfortunate moment when your phone slips out of your hand and the screen is smashed to pieces. Not only is it unsightly, it can make your phone impossible to use – but fixing it doesn’t have to break the bank.

If you’ve got a cracked screen, first you should assess how bad the damage is. You might be able to live with small cracks that don’t block your view too much, but larger cracks should probably be dealt with immediately.

If the colours on your screen are abnormal or some pixels are no longer displaying, the damage has gone much further than the glass on top and has affected the LCD panel beneath.

Drop your phone and the first reaction is probably ‘please don’t let it be broken’. But a new video shows just how tough a phone can be.

Called ‘Gravity’, the video is the second in a series designed to showcase the tough credentials of the Cat B15 smartphone, developed by construction manufacturer Caterpillar.

Made from aluminium and rubber the Cat B15 chassis is as tough as they come, it’s impact resistant, drop-proof from a distance of 1.8m and water resistant to 1m for 30 minutes.

Good luck — I’m still using my cracked tablet.
