Cinco de Mayo at iResQ
Hello all, and Happy Cinco de Mayo!
Much like when General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguin and the Mexican Army conquered the French in the Battle of Puebla, the iResQ staff is busy conquering the enormous stack of iPods, iPhones, and iPads that came in today. OK, that simile was a little bit of a stretch. What you really need to know is that we are in our usual “zone” and knocking those repairs out. If you have anything that needs a fix, or look, you know where to find us! And if you don’t, here’s our phone number: 888-447-3728
As Eric explained in a previous post, there’s a ton of Apple stuff going on right now. I’m not sure the old phrase, “Any publicity is good publicity” rings true in this case, but I think this company has proven they know what they’re doing–at least long term. If you’re interested, you can watch Jon Stewart’s rant about the whole missing iPhone prototype fiasco. Jon is not the only one.
Anyway, it’s Spring and that means baseball season. If you’re anywhere around Kansas City, that means Royals. If you are a Royals fan, that means another long and grueling season of losing. But guys, it wasn’t always like this! The Royals won the World Series in 1985 (and I am a Cardinals fan, and we lost to the Royals so I know). I won’t go too far into the specifics of that series, but there was a great, great player on the Royals named Willie Wilson.
I bring all this up because I went to see Pearl Jam at the Sprint Center on Monday night, and Eddie Vedder came out during one of the sets with a Willie Wilson jersey. Apparently, Vedder and Wilson are old friends.
So there you go. A little Royals history and a little rock ‘n roll. Unfortunately, my $80 tickets didn’t get me close enough to snap a decent pic with my iPhone and they didn’t allow cameras. But all in all, a really cool experience and a great show.
Once again, Happy Cinco de Mayo. If you are celebrating tonight, make sure you get home safe.
Keep sending us repairs and take it easy,
