All is well, folks. The Chiefs are back atop the AFC West. Thanksgiving is just two days away. And the holiday rush is weighing heavy on the days at iResQ. We’re getting the usual November-December surge of MacBooks, MacBook Pros, iPods, iPads and iPhones, but that’s no reason to sit back and take it easy on us. You got a problem with your Apple device? We’ve got you covered. And now with new repairs like Solid State Drives and Gen 6 iPod Nanos, and extending our hours (we’re now here until 6:00PM CST), we’re here for you more than ever before. And now, take a look at what is to come and count down with me the ten greatest things about Thanksgiving:
9. Canned cranberries with the can ridges still in them
8. Sweet potatoes
6. Assorted casseroles
4. Mashed potatoes and gravy
Man, I don’t know if I can wait another two days. I’d better go make a sandwich.

The Autumn months are quickly passing us by and 2010 is nearing its end. This is easily the best time of the year, at least in regards to sports, in the Kansas City area. Too bad we don’t have a NBA team because that’s started up already. But what we don’t have in NBA, we make up for with college teams. Missouri, Kansas, and Kansas State are all huge out here. Throw in some sprinklings of Nebraska and Iowa State and we have a pretty wide variety of fans here in KC. You probably already know our feelings about the NFL and college football from previous blogs.
Let’s get to the point here regarding the “White Winter” reference in the blog title. On Tuesday, local meteorologist (or weather man — great Nic Cage movie by the way) Gary Lezak released his prediction for snow storms this winter here in KC. There’s a lot that goes into his prediction and you can watch the video below, or read about it on the NBC Action News website.
So how much snow did Gary predict we’d get this year?
A measly 13 inches!!!!! That’s 31″ less than we received last year. The forecast is actually fine by me. Snow is pretty and all, but once it starts melting and getting that muddy-water look, I’m done with it. I also don’t like the slick roads and traffic accidents that can result. It can also slow down delivery trucks (and planes) and hinder our employees getting into work. Now that I’ve gone over the negatives, I guess snow’s not that great. I might not even have to break out the Snow Beasts this year!
If Gary’s correct, we should have a pretty easy Winter season here. Thanks Gary — we’ll see how your prediction goes over the next few months!
In the meantime, we’ll be doing our usual, repairing Apple products by day and cozying up by the fireplace by night.
Until next time,

Hey all (or y’all),
I will be heading down to the great state of Texas this weekend to visit family, friends, and watch football. I’m trying to decide how many of my Apple devices to bring with me on the trip. The iPhone is definitely coming, but what about the MacBook Pro or the iPad? Decisions, decisions.
Two years ago I flew down to Dallas and then drove over to Austin. Last year I flew into Houston and spent some time. This year I’m flying into Dallas and then driving to College Station. I’ll be attending the Heath vs. Rockwall high school football game on Friday night and the Missouri vs. Texas A&M game on Saturday. If you’ve ever read my blogs before, you know I’m a football nut and this should be enough evidence to prove that theory for you if you were on the fence. I’m excited to visit Kyle Field and see the game, even though I’ll have to listen to the Aggie Yell Leaders (below).
To change gears a little… We have been slammed with repairs, emails, and phone calls lately. I attribute that to a combination of things, but recently there are two articles that were published online that I want to point out:
The first is titled, “Apple May Surpass Exxon As World’s Most Valuable Company.” Guys, these folks running Apple are doing something right. I know there are a lot of haters out there, but you can’t argue with the success over the last few years.
The second article is called, “Study: iPhone 4 more fragile than previous models.”
When you think about both those articles, even if you only read the titles, it’s pretty easy to figure out why iResQ has been so successful. People are buying tons of Apple products — portable products that you can take around with you. Some of those things are going to break. Combine that with our easy-to-use website, amazing pricing deals, and exemplary customer service… It’s easy to see why we’ve been around since 1994 (and we’re not going anywhere)!
Folks, we’re here if you need us, no matter where you are in the USA.
See you in Texas!
Until next time,

I love fantasy football. Thank goodness it’s right around the corner. I don’t know how much more baseball I can handle (Well it IS a little bit easier since my Jayhawks won the national championship). This part of the year always kills me. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Royals but NFL/fantasy football is where my heart lies. For those of you who play fantasy football – I’ve got the 7th overall pick in my league. There are 10 members. I’ve got what’s generally regarded as the worst pick. I’m thinking about loading up on rbs early or possibly snatching up Tom Brady at that spot.
I don’t really know yet. Anyway… back to waiting for football season, the new iPhone and wishing I had a bigger iPod.
Now for a couple of random images – this first one is dedicated to my man Keith.
