Little league baseball is upon us!!

Hello all, if you’ve followed my blog over the years, you already know that I’ve been coaching and managing my very own little league baseball team for many years now. The “Slammers”. We were the Slammers because Buffalo Wild Wings was our sponsor, and “slammers” are little hamburgers on their menu. I know, I took the BWW theme too far, but nevertheless the “Slammers” grew into formidable foes on the field and we nearly won the tournament last year.

Nearly only because of bad coaching (my part). The boys did what they were told and I tried my best, we just got skunked by the Pop Cardinals in the semi finals. Ok, moving on – My boy is in 8th grade, I will let him move into High School baseball next year so this will be my last season as a coach.

This year the league has informed me that ALL of the other teams in my league have backed out. So we’re going to have to “play up” with the Gold Glove teams. Well, I love my guys, and we play well together, but Gold Glove? I’m most certainly not a Gold Glove coach that’s for sure!

So 8 of my guys want to play. That’s 8 out of 13. This means that I need to draft 5 more new athletes and within the next month mold them into Gold Glove standards. I’m very nervous. I’ve called on batting coach and ex-pro baseball player Charlie Hovey to help with the batting and pitching. Charley is a good friend of mine (we’re going to the Royals home opener together this year!) and he’s awesome with the boys. Is Charley going to be enough?

Your guess is as good as mine. We have until 5/7/11 before our first game and we’re in for the season of a lifetime. Wish us luck!! I’ll be in touch with games, status and results. Yikes!


3 ways to navigate, 1000 ways to save.

Hello all- we’ve made a few new changes to the website. Being a web-based company it makes sense, right? My webmaster is the best in the business and he’s always looking for ways to improve the site and the customer experience. I mean, if he didn’t do that, what else would he be doing?

We’re now introducing 3 ways to navigate our site. Take a look at the diagram above. Webmasters, take note, this is how it’s done:

1. Top Navigation Bar. This is an “automated” drop/drill down to all of our products and services. Just hover over the device name of the repair you’re looking for and click on the exact link you need. This is the quickest way to get to where you want to go!

2. Left Navigation Bar. This is a complete list, in simple text form, that allows you to quickly see general categories and drill down to the product or service you’re looking for. This will “walk” you though the “Full-Service” or “Do-It-Yourself” categories and lead you to the proper place.

3. Graphical display of our services. This is also a complete list, in graphics form, of each of the main categories of services that we offer. Click on any one of these graphics and it will lead you through a complete drill down starting with the basic question “do you want us to perform the repair or do you want to repair it on your own?”

So what does all of this mean? Well, it’s easy to find what your looking for on the Mission Repair website. This is our #1 priority. We want our customers to easily place an order and/or get the information that they need from us. Our services and style of business are setup such that we want to be known as the easy to use, best service iPhone repair and iPod repair site on the internet. Don’t take my word for it though, check out Top Ten Reviews. We’ve been #1 for 3 years running and with no sign of slowing down.

Mission Repair, The intelligent Choice.

Thanks, Ryan

Droid X Logic Board Repair Service-

Hello all, good morning! We’re happy to announce our newest line of services this morning, and we are successfully repairing Droid X Logic Boards effective immediately.

Our surface mount technicians are skilled at diagnosing and getting to the root of logic board issues and repairing them. Many customers report water damage or other issues with logic boards in their devices. The logic boards, (a.k.a. mother board, main board, main circuit board, memory board) is the “brain” of your device and is what does all of the processing and “thinking” in your phone. Without a properly working logic board you can have many symptoms including no power, restarting issues, sound issues, backlight problems or any other malfunction. The logic board is the more integral part of your device and also the most expensive. In almost all cases, the logic board will comprise the bulk of the cost of any device.

Subsequently, replacing a logic board can be an expensive prospect which is why we have committed ourselves to re-learning our roots. You see, back in 1994 (When I entered the Apple repair market), I ran a component level service center and this is really where my talents lie. It’s a win-win situation for us as we are now happy to offer a repair on a logic board (rather than a replacement) and we are also offering logic board repair to many dealers around the country. Watch our list of logic board repairs come to life, we are already performing these repairs:

iPhone Logic Board Repair
iPod Touch Logic Board Repair
MacBook Pro Logic Board Repair
Droid X Logic Board Repair
iPad Logic Board Repair (COMING THIS WEEK!)

Hey, it’s just one more reason that Mission Repair stands out among the competition. It’s our game!

Thanks, Ryan
