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,

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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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!
