Result:how to remove scratches from aluminum

My new iPad just got a scratch on the back (Im a very careful person so this was a bit devastating for me) and I was wondering if someone had any easy ways to remove scratches. The scratch is about a half-inch long and not too deep. Does anyone have some tricks or home remedies they could share? I would greatly appreciate it! MB292LL (iPad) Other OS...|remove-scratches-ipad

Per previous suggestions, I change my airport extreme to 5 ghz only... The speed on my IPAD jumped dramatically to 13.8 Mbps... I was impressed! The next day the speed dropped very dramatically to 733 kbps (not Mbps) while still on 5 ghz.... I only sit a few feet from airport extreme... My average daily speeds hover between 1 to 5 ghz.... Plus random drops from wifi completely... the aluminum brick saga continues.... Today it is failing to connect at all, numerous times... Finally quit using it!!!!!

I fired up my new iPad today and noticed the screen looked like it had scratches on it. I went and changed the wallpaper and they were gone, so the problem must be in the default wallpaper image. Below are some pictures displaying the marks. They are in the upper part of the screen.

Hi, Recently I purchased a iPad off craigslist and on receiving my iPad I wanted to erase out all of the data and start from the beginning.. In doing so I consulted the online instructions and my question is how long should this take? It has been 24 hours and the iPad only shows the apply sign. I cannot turn it on or off and if I reset it, it just shows the same apple sign.. If anyone knows what I can do please let me know.. Its a 64g wifi. Im just worried I killed it.. Not really, but I just wanted to know if anyone could help me.Sincerely, Jason ...|erase-remove-settings-ipad
