Any of you out there who may be following NFL preseason antics, either on field or off, probably heard about Chiefs Head Coach Todd Haley’s attendance at the Lil Wayne show at the Sprint Center this weekend. Like the guy or not, think the whole thing was a publicity gimmick or not, the story is at least entertaining. After the show, Weezy tweeted the following:
“KC was krrrazeeee!!!! Props to Tech 9 and the KC Chiefs Coach Haley and # 24 B. Flowers for the luv! I had fun tonight…Afterparty!”
You can read more at huffingtonpost.com. Incidentally, if you’re a fan of Mr. Wayne, you should follow his props and take a listen to Tech 9’s most recent album.
On the iPhone front, Apple is offering a third wireless carrier! That’s right, The Wall Street Journal reports that when the iPhone 5 launches in mid-October it will be available on the Sprint Nextel network as well as AT&T and Verizon. This is great news for Apple consumers everywhere, as the iPhone will now be available on about 85% of networks across America between the three. Sources report that a Sprint version of the iPhone 4 will also be available. We’ll update you as we hear more.
Have a great week, everyone, and enjoy the last two preseason games before the real action starts.

If you’re a regular to the iResQ blog, you should know good and well by now that a good bulk of us at iResQ are Chiefs fans. Come football time, we get excited. This year in particular is especially exciting. With the lockout lifted just last Monday, the floodgates have been opened for free agent signing. One acquisition that the Chiefs made yesterday was well received. Steve Breaston, formally of the Arizona Cardinals, will sign a 5-year contract with the Chiefs tonight. Chiefs fans have been clamoring for the team to beef up their core receiving squad, and based on our first round draft pick in Jonathan Baldwin along with the recent acquisition of Breaston, it looks like the Chiefs are doing just that. Go figure, this is Todd Haley we are talking about.
Now the fact that we got Breaston, a proven receiver in the NFL, is great. The icing on the cake, at least for me, is this:
Ok ok, I hear ya. What does this all have to do with getting your Apple products fixed? What does this have to do with repairing your broken iPhone, your busted iPad 2, or the cracked screen on your MacBook Air? Well, the answer to that is….not much. I just like talking football. What I can tell you is that iResQ is doing better than ever. Not only are we performing a record amount of repairs (ESPECIALLY on iPads) we have more positive feedback than we can shake a stick at. Check out what our customers have been saying about us on the interwebs. Or, you can check out iResQ’s A+ rating with the BBB.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Also don’t forget to watch this Sunday’s installment of the best sitcom of all time, Curb Your Enthusiasm.

There’s a lot of stuff going on right now at iResQ – among those things:
1) Snow Leopard comes out Friday
2) The Chiefs have played 2 preseason games
3) College football starts in about a week and a half (Sept. 5 for me)
4) iResQ has a new featured employee
Jumping right in…
Snow Leopard! – That’s right, it comes out this Friday the 28th of August. You can bet that most of the employees here (myslef included) are currently making backups and preparing for the upgrade. Personally, I’ll take it slow and only put it on one computer for now as there are usually some inconvenient bugs in the newly released versions. Also, since iResQ is a member of the ACN (Apple Consultants Network), we’ll be getting a free copy sometime very soon. Thanks Apple!
Chiefs football – OK, so we’ve seen two games under the new regime of Scott Pioli and coach Todd Haley. I am not weighing too heavily on the preseason games because I know the transition from terrible to playoffs will take at least a couple of years. It sounds like Haley is running a tight ship and does not tolerate people who aren’t there to work and do thier jobs — I like the concept; let’s see how it plays out over this season.
College football – It’s no secret around the office that I am a Missouri Tiger fan. I went to college there and even though I live and work in Kansas, I will always be a Tiger fan. We do have at least one other Tiger fan in the office (the infamous Keith), but I won’t go into too much detail on the Tigers. Let’s just hope they continue to dominate (yep I said it) the big 12 North.
Nic Besel is our new iResQ featured employee – and you can click on that link to check out his profile that was posted yesterday.
No new coupons to give out today, but you can still scroll down and check out Mick’s last post if you want to save some cash this summer. Back to work for me, that’s all for now!
