It sure has been a while hasn’t it? Sorry about that. Business has been tremendously busy this entire summer. And as the summer winds down, we are gearing up for Apple’s latest round of press conferences and announcements. With rumors looming over us that the iPhone 5 will be released sometime in early October, we can’t wait to get our hands on one. It is so close, and yet so far away. And guess what, we will be ready to tackle any of your iPhone 5 repairs upon its release. We love every thing about new Apple products here, especially learning how to fix them!
Now, let’s talk about one of our featured iPod reapair services: iPod Touch Gen 4 Screen Repair – $100. The iPod Touch seems to be the most popular iPod out there. And that’s for good reason. If you don’t own or even want an iPhone, the iPod Touch is the best thing out there. In my opinion, the one thing that would make this device perfect (other than lowering the price…) is adding some kind of network coverage similar to the iPad (think iPod Touch with 3G). I’d be willing to bet that this will be a feature on the iPod Touch in the future, but I may be wrong. Either way, if you find yourself with a Touch Gen 4 that has a broken screen, iResQ can save your day.
Moving on to our next featured repair, we have iPad 2 Screen Repairs for only $209. That’s right, we will fix your iPad 2’s cracked glass for only $209. So don’t be distraught when you see your precious iPad 2 tumble to the ground. iResQ will get your iPad 2 fixed as quickly as possible.
Well, that’s all for now. It’s Friday, the Chiefs are playing tonight, and I’m ready to relax.

A famous Beatle once stated, “all things must pass”. There comes a time when great things must settle down and move on. That time has come for one of the most successful computer models in history…the MacBook (not to be confused with the MacBook Pro). Yes. Today marks the official day when the MacBook has been discontinued. Farewell my old friend.
Now, the cheapest Mac notebook on the market is the amazing MacBook Air. Obviously, Apple see’s the MacBook Air as the future of their notebook line. The MacBook Air is truly a technical achievement, and starting at $999, it is more affordable than ever. Despite its current shortcomings (limited HD space, no optical drive…), the MacBook Air is a marvel. Oh yeah, HELLO THUNDERBOLT!! If you don’t know what Thunderbolt is, read this article from Gizmodo.
Still, to me, nothing can replace the simplicity and convenience of the old MacBook…except the 13.3″ MacBook Pro 🙂
At the time of its release, the MacBook was, quite simply, a revolution not only for Apple, but for the notebook industry. Let’s face it, Mac OS X was awesome with a PPC processer, but with the Intel processor, the darn thing just soared. My old MacBook (purchased in 2007) still runs circles around some of my friend’s newer Windows based computers. The only flaw that I truly felt with my MacBook was the fact that its integrated video card was not that great. Sure, not being able to play Portal on my MacBook sucked, but that’s what I have an Xbox for.
Let’s not be sad of that fact that the MacBook will no longer be around, let us all celebrate it. Here is to looking to the future…
Farewell ye olde MacBook.
