Some people get their kicks from tearing apart things. Robby Stanley, owner of iPhone repair site DirectFix.com, got one of the first iPhone 3G S phones today. Then he proceeded to dismantle it and post on YouTube a “take apart repair” video.
Stanley started his Morgan Hill, Calif.-based company in his garage in 2001. He tore apart and repaired various things that Apple couldn’t or didn’t. Now he has a 4000-square-foot office and a staff of seven to repair iPhones and other equipment. Last year, 2.5 million visitors hit the company’s web page. This new video of the iPhone 3G S is one of more than 60 iPhone repair videos the company has posted.
