• With the number of recent threads from brand new users that we have observed in our Classifieds forum selling goods under questionable circumstances, we have instituted a new policy restricting new members of iLounge from posting new threads in the Classifieds forum until they have reached "Regular Member" status.

    New users become Regular Members once they have made 10 posts and been a member of the iLounge Forums for at least 7 days. Prior to this time, members may still read the Classifieds forum, and even respond to existing threads for items being sold by other members, but they may not create new threads advertising their own items for sale.

    This will hopefully help to protect our user community by discouraging fraudulent users from signing up and posting classified ads without having at least a very basic level of established membership in our forums.

    Obviously all users should still exercise due diligence when making use of our classifieds forums, but we hope that this restriction will help to decrease the number of blatantly fraudulent ads that we have been seeing in recent weeks.

    Please be sure to review our Classified Forum Policy for more information.

Hi users, Have you any experience with the 'hinge' coming 'loose' ? Suddenly my screen leans forward---the tension or friction formerly holding it at the desired attitude is gone. . Make sense? Thanks for your help

If the device is less than 3 years old, you can contact Apple Care and they should fix or replace it.

There are a number of hacks out there using wedges and plastic clips to fix the issue for devices out of warranty.

Dear cjmnews, I take it that it's not really fixable for the home user--and mine is 6 years old. For something taking so little 'abuse' it seems pretty flimsy of a part. But I guess building muscle into the sleek style has its' limitations. I'll join the 'Hacks' you mention and rig something up. Thanks for your advising. Cm
