What it do, everybody? Fall is officially here according to the UPS calendar on the wall, and that means it’s about time to head to the cider mill or the pumpkin patch, break out the hoodies and long pants, and start raking leaves. Ugh, I hate yard work. But who can say no to jumping into a pile of red, orange and amber with the kids? Not me.
You may or may not have heard that Apple is declining vacation requests from employees during the first week of October. And that could only mean…. retail patronage influx for the IPHONE 5!. Huzzah. Maybe its just me, but this year seems a little light on all the iPhone ado- maybe it’s because there’s no hugely dramatic design change, maybe it’s because Steve Jobs isn’t driving the buzz, or maybe it’s just the three extra months of waiting that has everybody turning up the ambivalent knob. Still, it’s exciting to anticipate what Apple has in mind for the iPhone 5, as well as the Sprint iPhone and the rumored iPhone light (4S?). Here we go.
And, as is a fall custom, a quick check on football. Chiefs = still bad. With nearly half the roster on the DL, it’s a wonder that they came within half a field length of beating Philip Rivers and the Chargers. Broken, battered and incompetent is no way to go through life, son. If you live in or pay any attention to the midwest, it’s time to panic again in the Big 12, which is now a mathematical anomaly at nine schools. Tired of losing to everyone in the third or fourth best conference in the NCAA, Texas A&M has officially moved to the SEC, the best conference in the NCAA. Smart move, Aggies. And thanks for pushing the rest of us to stay and support the league over the last few months. Not that anyone can blame you. Let’s go Big 9! Now if we just drop one more it’s back to the good old days:
Ok, everyone, I think it’s about time for me to stop ranting. Have a great week, and we’ll be back with more iPhone news as it happens.

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,
