Hello everyone, yet another cold day in Kansas City with lots of snow on the ground still and we are all more than ready for spring to be here. All over our website we have reduced prices on several repairs! Below are some of the most popular reductions we have made! As we are able to purchase quality parts for less – it means we can pass along deals to you at a cheaper cost without losing the world renowned integrity of our products and services! Here are some of the price reductions:

13″ MacBook Pro Glass Panel Replacement Service – $129

Also, very soon, we are expecting color backplates in Red, Baby Blue and Pink! We will update our website as soon those are in stock, so keep checking back! While I’m thinking about it, here is a short ‘How To’ video on replacing your iPhone 4 backplate video that we’ve recently posted – check it out!
Be sure to stay tuned to our website, blog, and updates as there is so much more happening and coming out in the near future. You can place an order on our website anytime or, if you prefer giving us a call during business hours at 888-447-3728 and speak with any of our sales representatives, that works too. Our flat rate repairs do not include shipping, but we have amazing shipping rates with UPS and are happy to pass them along to you.

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,

One of our beloved Kansas City Chiefs is in a new YouTube video encouraging us all not to text and drive. Good advice! I’m still waiting for someone to invent a device that you can add-on to your vehicle and disable your SMS ability while your car is in motion. I think it would be especially useful for parents who have teenagers. I know if I had a teen child, I’d be very worried and concerned about them texting and driving… iPhone users or otherwise. Anyway, here’s the video (special thanks to Eric K. for sending this over to me when I got to work today):
Who is that guy? Well, I’m pretty sure the Chargers know who he is. Hint: He’s the man with the long locks returning the punt for a TD on the opening “Monday Night Football” night:
I hope everyone enjoys their weekend. I know that several of our staff, including myself, will be at the Chiefs game this weekend against the San Francisco 49ers. I’ll also be in Columbia on Saturday to watch the Missouri vs. Miami (Ohio) game. Lots of driving for me, but rest assured, no texting!
Stay safe and have a great weekend. Keep ordering those repairs and we’ll be back Monday.

How do you get a baby astronaut to sleep? Rocket!
Please pardon the astronaut puns and jokes. There really is a reason for all this nonsense. I recently traveled to the city of Houston, Texas. In case you didn’t know, it’s the home of the Johnson Space Center which is a NASA base. I’m sure they are tired of the, “Houston, we have a problem” quotes ever since Apollo 13 came out.
The reason I went to Houston shall remain top-secret, but I did stop by the Galleria while I was there to drop in on the Apple Store. If you ever go, make sure you talk to Mary — she’s the best. Here are a couple of pics that I snapped from my iPhone (In the first, check out the real live Texas cowboy):
So there you have it. I will say though, not EVERYTHING was bigger in Texas. The iPods and iPhones were still the same size; I checked.
ONE LAST THING — I wanted to give y’all (Texas style) a shot at 10% off an approved repair. Good through February 26 2010, email Mick (email@example.com) with the coupon code ASTRONAUT plus your order number and he will apply the discount. Remember, this expires at 5PM CST on Feb. 26 and only will apply to approved repairs, not on shipping or part only orders.
Have a great weekend and don’t mess with Texas!

This is Raja — my girlfriend and I just rescued her from the pound about a month ago. She is a 5 month old German Shepherd and a real sweetie. I guess you could say that the folks of iResQ are into rescuing fluff-bombs, vanilla-furs, poof-heads and other fuzzy animals. Eric has been blogging about his rescue dog for awhile, so we felt it was the right thing to do by bringing in another addition to our farm (house).
At first she and Dub didn’t really get along. Dub was a little jealous, actually. But now they’re BFF (best friends forever — check your old yearbook and you’ll remember) and we can barely keep them separate.
One of Raja’s ears is starting to pop up in true German Shep fashion. The other one’s a little late to the game. Notice the wonderful blankets made by grandma Janice. Perfect for hyper pups.
So why not offer a QPON in honor of our new rescue pup? I’ll honor 6 bucks off any repair. Just email me the QPON code “RAJA” and your web confirmation number to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll apply the discount. As usual, this does not apply to diagnostic services – only repairs.
Alright, well, have a great couple weeks and remember to keep us in mind for all of your iPod, iPhone, PSP and Portable needs if you’re interested in world famous repairs!
