This is going to be a more lighthearted entry in our blog world, every now and then you just need it. It’s that beautiful time of year when the grass turns green and the vast desolate lands of bare trees begin to bud. The air is crisp and cool in the morning and warm and refreshing during the day. I’ve said this time and again, spring may not be my favorite season of the year, but it is truly the most beautiful. This all takes me back to my glory days during college. Around this time you begin to notice every student walking to class with an iPod on and earbuds jammed in their ears as each of them is in their own little worlds. I remember when I was a freshman in 2002 not that many people had iPods. As a matter of fact I can still remember some students still walking around with portable cd players. It wasn’t that long ago, folks. Before too long the iPod ruled the roost. Kids walking around with iPods was as ubiquitous in college culture as flip flops and cargo shorts.
The same thing could be said about laptops in college. I was at college at just the right time to see two or three laptops used in lecture halls to well over 50% by the time I left. It was no surprise that there were more Apple notebooks used than any other type of laptop. First it was iBooks and PowerBooks that dominated the classrooms followed by the MacBook and MacBook Pro.
So where does this all lead us? Well it leads us to the inevitable. Where there are college students, there are iPods and MacBook Pros. You combine the two and here is what you come up with: broken iPods and broken MacBooks. You do keep your MacBooks in your backpacks, dont you? What happens when you overstuff it with heavy textbooks or drop it? The screen cracks and all your work is almost inaccessible. That’s where we come in. Have a broken MacBook Pro or a MacBook with a cracked screen? iResQ caters to the poor college student with affordable repair prices. After all, fixing your broken laptop is cheaper than buying a new one.
And what happens when your iPod Touch suffers an untimely death as it meets the pavement? Our iPod Touch screen repair is best in class.
Talk to you later.

Well well well. Apple Apple Apple. Rumors rumors rumors. Developers developers developers. What do you have in store for us, ole mighty Apple? I guess it’s nothing new. Whenever we approach the impending release of Apple’s newest incarnation of its cellular device, people get excited. Rumors begin to surface. Technical specifications tend to leak out. Drunken software engineer’s leave iPhone prototypes on barstools. You name it. Well, just when you think you have heard it all, our very own Al Gore gets involved in the picture purportedly stating that the iPhones (yes that was plural) will be coming out next month (October). iPhones. Not just one. What does this mean!!! Oh my! Will Apple release an iPhone 5 and an iPhone 4S? Will Apple release only an iPhone 4S but with multiple carriers? Is the new iPhone going to be Nintendo’s next Wii Remote? What will they do!!!!!
Sorry for the exclamation. All this talk has begun to fry my brain. To be honest, no matter what Apple releases everyone that loves Apple is going to love it. I’m going to love it. And guess what? iResQ is going to love it. And love it we will. From the moment the new iPhone is released, we will be sure to offer repairs on it no matter the model, no matter the carrier. iPhone 4S repairs…no problem. iPhone 5 repairs…yep. Rest assured, we are on the case.
In the mean time, we are still offering the ever so popular iPod Touch 4 screen replacement service for only $100. Think about that. How much did your iPod Touch cost you? $229? $299? $399? By fixing your Touch instead of buying a new one, you are going to save yourself AT LEAST $100. This is no chump change.
Well, the week is almost over and I am looking forward to the weekend. My home at Lee’s Summit is hosting its annual Oktoberfest and I am stoked.

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.
