Already a global device, the iPhone 4S has made major strides by launching on China Telecom today. The Chinese market is the best region to capitalize for Apple. Already vastly popular in China, Apple and the iPhone are gaining more steam each day. China Telecom is the second carrier in the country to offer the iPhone and is the largest carrier to offer the 4S on the CDMA networks according to a recent Mac Rumors article. I know there are a ton of non-Apple smart phone users out there (and Apple haters for that matter) but let’s face it, the iPhone is dominating the market. Personally, I love my iPhone. It has almost completely replaced me using my MacBook. Less and less do I find the need to open up my old laptop when I have my iPhone by my side wherever I go. It’s things like this that make the iPhone, and particularly the iPhone 4S so popular.
So what are the implications of China Telecom offering the iPhone? Well, offering the iPhone on different carriers can be enough to push someone unwilling to buy one over the edge. I know plenty of friends that waited and waited for the iPhone to be released on Sprint before buying one. The same thing goes for the wonderful folks in China. More carriers equals more people using iPhones. And that means more money for Apple. Which in turn can (hopefully) lead to more innovation from Apple and more investment money in new ideas. The possibilities are seemingly endless. I want to see Apple continue to innovate, to continue to make such beautiful and user friendly products.
(You knew this was coming) More importantly, I hate to see these same beautiful products broken. What makes me sad is seeing an iPhone 4S with a cracked screen. Do yourself a favor and repair your broken iPhone, because we all know what a broken iPhone is worth….GETTING FIXED!!

iPhone 4S repair is always an option if you happen to drop and break your iPhone 4S. Shattered glass is always just a few feet away if you’re not careful. Not only is shattered or cracked glass on your iPhone 4S unsightly, it is dangerous. No one should ever use an iPhone with cracked glass. Take it from us. We see tons of iPhones come in with cracked screens and shattered glass. Once we take these out of their boxes, tiny shards of cracked glass pour out along with them. These tiny pieces of glass can very easily end up in your skin causing pain for weeks. Luckily, iResQ specializes in exactly these types of repairs. Whether it be an iPhone 4S with cracked glass, an iPhone 4 with a busted screen, or even an iPhone 3GS with a cracked digitizer, iResQ can and will fix it for cheap.
Don’t risk it. If your iPhone’s screen is cracked, get it fixed. You don’t want to have to suffer through the pain of having a glass splinter in your finger or even your ear for that matter! One thing to consider is that even the tiniest, cheapest case can prove to be an effective tool agains shattering your iPhone’s screen. But, if you are like most of us and don’t want to use a case to protect your iPhone 4S and simply want to revel in the sheer beauty of your iPhone 4S, your iPhone is more at risk of being damaged.
Moral of the story, have an iPhone with a cracked screen? You can get it fixed for a price cheaper than you ever would have expected with iResQ’s iPhone Repair Services.

With all of this talk about the iPad 3, any news about the iPhone 4S and iOS 5.1 seems to have been eclipsed. Let’s remember that Apple is more than likely going to announce more than just the iPad 3. This event is going to be big. We may hear something about the next iteration of the Apple TV, new Macbook Pro models, or even (gasp) the Apple TV!! Ok, maybe not the Apple TV but who knows?
Among the topics that Apple may discuss is iOS 5.1. Seeing iOS 5.1 in more detail is going to be great. There are many reasons to be excited about iOS 5.1. While iOS 5.1 may initially be available only for the iPad 3, rest assured, when its the iPhone 4S’ turn to receive the iOS 5.1 update, it will take full advantage of it. A more capable Siri? Yes please! Apple has done an amazing job updating its mobile platform with each iteration.
So before selling or throwing out that cracked or broken iPod Touch or iPhone 3G S, iResQ can repair it for you to get it ready for the new iOS. Remember, we just reduced prices on iPhone 4S repairs dramatically. iPhone 4S Screen repairs are at a record low of $99.

iResQ is blowing up this week with iPhone 4S repairs, MacBook screen repairs, and iPad repairs. But we have pause briefly to discuss some very important ballyhoo. Yep, I just said ballyhoo. March 7 is the date we’ve been hearing this week. Apple’s March 7 Media Event should mark the arrival of a new iPad with Retina display (LCDs with a 2048×1536 resolution according to tinkers at MacRumors). And multiple retailers such as Target and Best Buy are lowering the prices of their iPad 2s, presumably in anticipation. So what does that mean for the fate of the iPad 2? Well, not much really. At least not in the immediate future. There are still plenty of iPhone 3GS in use (we see a plethora of 3GS and 4 iPhones for repair despite the iPhone 4S release last fall), and early indications seem to suggest that, aside from a speed bump and twice the resolution there aren’t necessarily going to be major fundamental differences between the iPad 2 and the iPad 3. You 3D proponents out there are going to have to wait a little longer.
Just a quick note on the Academy Awards, since I can’t help but dispense my opinions on movie culture. It’s no surprise that Hugo and The Artist cleaned up- both were beautifully stylized without being heavy-handed and both were earnest homages to film history at large. It’s the least I have disagreed with the Oscars in quite a while. What was interesting to me is how the Academy seems to respond when there isn’t a clear frontrunner in a given category, like this year’s Animated Feature. Nothing against Rango (I’m a big fan of Gore Verbinski), but it seems like when there isn’t a heralded Pixar picture then the judges essentially put recognizable names on a dart board and fire away (*cough* Kung Fu Panda 2 *cough*). The lack of a great Pixar film in 2011, and the In Memoriam montage serves as a reminder of, like him or hate him, how influential Steve Jobs was on so many facets of popular culture. Apple is moving forward, and I can’t imagine Pixar won’t as well, but I hope it’s with the same gusto and attention to perfect detail that we’ve come to expect. Ah, now I think I hear the music playing me off. Goodnight, everybody.
