Happy spring, everyone. It’s certainly warming up here in Kansas City- I spent a good part of my weekend fighting the lines at Home Depot to get mulch and grass seed. Everyone has yard work and basketball fever this week. In case you didn’t know, Kansas is also playing in the NCAA National Championship tonight, much to the delight or chagrin of iResQ staff, depending on who you ask. No matter who you root for, if you’re like me you love a come from behind victory. Especially when it’s in the form of a defensive smackdown. Take a look at one of Jeff Withey’s seven second-half blocks:
Let’s make a celebratory deal on MacBook and MacBook Pro display glass repairs. Call it April Madness.

Good morning to you all. It’s Thursday, which means it’s almost Friday, which means it’s almost time for the Final Four! Huzzah! For those of you not in Kentucky, Ohio, Kansas or New Orleans, my condolences. It’s very exciting for the rest of us, though. Even Jason Sudeikis is plugging the tourney, being a die-hard Jayhawks fan. If you caught him on Letterman Tuesday night, you may have heard multiple nods to the metropolitan area we here at iResQ call home. Overland Park, where Sudeikis grew up, is adjacent to Olathe where our headquarters is located. In any case, it’s always fun to hear a local product get big and mention his hometown and the local culture. If you didn’t see it, here’s an amusing anecdote about his first Final Four experience:
And now a quick plug for an iPhone App that has me glued to my iPhone 4. If you love the social aspects of Words with Friends, but you’re looking for something new (or you’re fed up with WwF’s rejection of actual words), try Draw Something. It’s a simple concept- you draw something, the other iPhone/iPad user you’re playing with guesses what it is. Easy enough? There’s a learning curve in drawing with your finger tip, so if you’re like me most of your early attempts will look like malformed stick figures, but eventually you may do this:
There’s a free version in the App Store, so go at it. And remember, if in the midst of a frantic drawing or guessing session you drop your iPhone 4, iPad or iPod Touch, don’t fret. As always, we’re here with repair services for all your iDevices. Have a great week everybody.

Yep, everyone has the fever. Like Brian said, the Sprint Center in downtown Kansas City just played host to the Big 12 Tournament, and it was crazy on Saturday night. Predictably and deservedly, Kansas won the conference tournament for the fourth time in five years, leaving the much-improved but always-a-bridesmaid Kansas State in their wake. But fret not, Wildcat fans. A two seed in the NCAA Tourney ain’t bad. The brackets are up on the web, so go at it. I’m going to throw it out there right now, at least for one of my brackets. Kansas, Kentucky, Nova, Kansas State. Final Four. Blammo.
I’ve talked to a few of you out there on the phone and via email, and it sounds like you’re revving up for iPad delivery already. In case you missed it, the new Apple device went up for pre-sale at Apple.com on Friday and should be shipping out by the boat load in just a few weeks. So hooray for you if you’re on the list.
Now, something that I’ve been meaning to bring up since Keith posted his creed of the balds not too long ago. There’s a sub-culture that some might consider the opposite of the balds that I have to show my profound support of. We bearded folk have been adding to our numbers over the last few years, and it’s about time we give ourselves a pat on the back for strengthening our community. We have a long and storied history of influential men in our ranks. Just take a look:
But there’s one man that you and I know that balances these two cultures with the grace and finesse of a bald man with a beard. Because that’s what he literally is. Everyone’s favorite sales manager, Mick Myers.
Sure, go ahead. Applaud the man. He’s making two worlds collide.

Well, if your NCAA brackets are doing as poorly as mine right now, you may welcome the change in sporting season. As always, after a promising first round and a 99.9th percentile standing in the ESPN rankings, I blew it in the Sweet 16 and now I’m fourth in the annual office pool. Phooey.
But don’t fret, sports fans (that address is literal this time, not just my usual term of plural-possessive endearment). Apple has got you covered. According to MacWorld, Major League Baseball has launched At Bat 2009, the successor to last year’s stat tracker with a cool new feature- live audio from games around the country. Ok, ok, countries. Sorry Toronto. Forgot you guys were still up there. So go get it now at the App Store and cheer your team on everywhere you go. Enjoy the Final Four, friends. Go ‘Nova.
