Here's another cool How-to from I fix screens. In this tutorial we will show you how to make a bootable OS X Yosemite USB key, so you can boot OS X Yosemite from anywhere using a USB.
Step 1: Connect a 8GB or larger USB key to your Macbook
Step 2: Launch the Mac App Store
Step 3: Go to the OS X Yosemite application page in the app store and click on the Install button. *If you have already downloaded OS X Yosemite on your mac or have installed it, you will have to click on the "Download" button again.
Step 4: Launch the Disk Utility application. (This will be in the utilities folder)
Step 5: In the Disk Utility application, select the USB dive (This will be on the left and side)
Step 6: Click on the Partition Tab
Step 7: Under Partition Layout: set it to 1 Partition; change Name to: Yosemite; and Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
Step 8: Click on the "Options" button and click on the botton that says "GUID Partition Table" then click OK
Step 9: Click "Apply" to save all your changes. When you are asked to confirm, clock the "Partition" button.
Step 10: Open and launch "Terminal" on your mac, (this will be located in the utilities folder)
Step 11: Make sure you do not have any other versions named "Yosemite" (other then the one we just created above) and make sure your empty USB stick is still inserted.
Step 10: Type or copy the following command into the Terminal Application window.
sudo '/Applications/Install OS X Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia' –volume '/Volumes/Yosemite' –applicationpath '/Applications/Install OS X Yosemite.app' –nointeraction
Step 12: You will be asked to enter your password. This is the administrative account password for your mac.
Step 13: After about 15-20 minutes your USB install Key for OS X Yosemite will be complete, you should see a "Copy complete" and "Done" on your window.

Let's See What Some Have To Say
Collin is the master. I had a broken iPad mini. Began by getting a quote from Collin. He answered me right away before this business hours even started. I dropped off the broken iPad mini screen and he was finished in about three hours. They called me up and had it ready. Collin was friendly and knows his stuff. I suggest anyone who broke their screen to check them out.
My husband and I just got both of our iPhones repaired at the Shirley location. We couldn't be more happy. Our iPhones look and feel brand new!! Both technicians, Ali and Marisol, are wonderful, knowledgeable, professional and caring! Being, that we walked into the store fifteen before eight we were afraid that we would have to leave our iPhones there until tomorrow.
My 9 year old dropped his iPad mini shattering the screen and was devastated. I found this place through groupon and immediately purchased a voucher. The carle place store is amazing. Very clean and faster than i had expected. I went in and Nora greeted me. She is courteous and professional. I asked how long it would take and she surprised me by saying less than an hour.
