Well, as many of us here at iResQ feared, the season is over for our beloved Chiefs thanks to a merciless rout at home at the hands of John Harbaugh, Ed Reed and Rays Lewis and Rice. Despite the devastating Sunday afternoon (and setting an NFL record seven consecutive playoff losses. Ouch), we fans are still proud of the worst-to-first jump and the winning prospects over the next few years. And now you don’t have to listen to me go on and on about them ever again. Until August.
On the iPhone front, Tuesday is going to be an exciting day for those of you who have been clamoring for an iPhone but have no AT&T service where you live. Though Apple isn’t scheduled for a product launch until March, Verizon has a press conference on Tuesday at which, according to major media outlets, they should announce the arrival of an iPhone that runs on their own network. Not only that, but rumor has it they’ll be able to hit the ground running with unlimited data plans, something that AT&T recently abandoned in favor of two limited usage 3G plans. So those of you on the East and West coasts who depend on Verizon should hear some good news. There’s no confirmation about any major design changes, though there have been whispers of a smaller version. Until Tuesday, or until Apple makes the announcement themselves, we can assume that it will look something like this:
Guess what, though. A different carrier doesn’t mean the glass is any less explodable upon impact (yes, I made up the word explodable. What’s it to you?), so we’ll be here to bail you out if you Verizon customers happen to drop your shiny new iPhones. Or iPods. Or MacBooks.
If your team is still in the playoffs, congratulations and enjoy it this week. Until next fall, everybody.

Like Brian said, it’s been nuts here at iResQ this week- new year, a whole slew of new repairs to be done. We’re full on into January, and it’s cold here in Kansas City. Everyone is bundling up in warm clothes like this:
Oh, whoops. That’s a 2010 AFC West Champions hoodie. How did that get in there? Yes, that’s right. The Chiefs are hosting a playoff game this Sunday at our very own Arrowhead Stadium, and it’s going to be a tough one, to be sure. Since we’ll need all the backing we can get against a playoff-experienced Baltimore Ravens squad, lend us a word of support and I’ll give you a nice discount off your next MacBook, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air repair service. Email “GO CHIEFS” to firstname.lastname@example.org between now and Sunday for $25 off your repair. This offer is valid on flat-rate or approved repairs, not free diagnostics, and be sure to include your order number so the discount can be applied. And guess what? If the Chiefs win Sunday the discounts will keep coming, so unless you’re a Ravens fan, keep cheering on the West. Quoth the Raven, ‘Nevermore.’ Have a great weekend, everybody.
