So we just answered a call at Mission Repair…

Good afternoon folks and Happy Wednesday!

One of my customer service reps sent me an iChat saying “I just took a call and the customer thanked me for answering the phone”.

I wanted to send up a quick blog because it seems that we get this all the time. In fact, I’ve even answered the phone and at times the customer will state “I’m giving you my business because you answered my call.”

Give us a try. 866-638-8402. When you’re looking for an iPhone service center, the least we can do is answer the phone for you, right? Well, as our phone system is set up, it always rings our call center (which we just expanded recently by the way) and you’ll always get a live person during normal business hours. Now, I have to admit that we have had a few exceptions recently. . .we only have a certain number of telephone lines that come into our building and if they are all full, they you may temporarily get a busy signal. This is being rectified as we are adding 12 more lines soon.

Other than that, I just want to say “you’re welcome” and you can always expect someone to answer your call here at Mission Repair. It’s just part of business.


Prototype iPad with Dual Dock Connectors?

Hello folks, did you see the auction listing with the iPad that has dual dock connectors on eBay? The subject was discussed in depth on the MacRumors site Monday. They mentioned that we here at Mission Repair had discovered a backplate back in 2010 and we had been talking about this issue for some time – you can read my original blog about the dual-dock connector iPad backplate here from 2010 to see what I was talking about! Here’s a picture of our backplate:

And here’s a picture of the iPad that ended up on eBay, see the similarity?:

I just went to the eBay listing and the iPad sold on May 28th – for a whopping $10,200. At least it included free Ground shipping ๐Ÿ˜‰

So it got me thinking. . .we here at Mission Repair need to start working on a prototype iPad with dual dock connectors, right? With sales on these units at $10K/piece, there’s certainly a market out there for some diehard iPad landscape docking fans. Listen, when we develop a landscape docking upgrade, we won’t charge you $10K – it will be half price ๐Ÿ˜‰

I know it’s a one of a kind Apple prototype but thanks to MacRumors for the repost of our original story.

Take care, Ryan

I’m going to share an old family secret recipe with you!

Good morning folks, what a heck of a weekend. We were busy. I mean like so overwhelmed that meals were not even a luxury we could stop and enjoy. So last night my General Manager, Troy came over to my house so we could prepare for the short “after-Memorial-Day-Weekend” week that we have begun today.

Frankly it was getting late, and since I hadn’t had dinner yet, I pulled out an old family favorite because I thought Troy was ready for the experience. It was time to share Ryan’s Famous Bean and Bacon Sandwiches with him!

I know what you’re thinking. This has to be some sort of Midwest thing and only someone from Kansas would concoct such a meal. Well, I hate to disappoint you, but this recipe was taught to me be my Grandmother back in Southern California back in 1995. She had been making these for years as her mother (my Great Grandmother) taught her, and I am going to continue the tradition by passing on the love for as many people as I can ๐Ÿ˜‰ Please note that this is not a “healthy” food – it’s a “comfort” food and I would not recommend this as part of any diet plan!

So let’s get started.

First you’re going to need a few slices of bread, a can of Bush’s baked beans, butter, cooked bacon, and slices of american cheese:

Next, you should start by heating the beans up in a saucepan on the stove. Just get them bubbly. While the beans are heating, spread the bread with butter on a cookie sheet:

The next step is to layer the hot beans over the buttered bread. Just a thin layer is preferable. You don’t want the sandwiches to be too mushy:

Then you’ll break up the crispy bacon and layer it on top of the beans:

Finally, add a slice of american cheese over the bacon to complete the building of the sandwich:

Now place them into a preheated broiler, just for about 3 minutes. Watch them closely as the cheese will burn quickly – you’re going to want to get the cheese nice and bubbly and cooked to your liking:

Once they are done, eat them “open face” with a fork, or if you let them cool a bit, you can pick them up and eat them “on the go”:

We gobbled these up at about midnight last night and oh boy were they tasty! As Troy was scooping his last bite, I was able to get him to say “These are multifaceted pieces of artwork”. Good enough for me!

So when you’re up late one night or just want to try a new tasty treat, come back to the blog and I’ll take care of ya. If you’re in town and want me to do the cooking, just give me a call and I’ll invite you over and we’ll eat them in my kitchen!
Ok back to work (I’m talking to myself) and we have a huge week ahead of us. I’ll be back soon with some Mission Repair news later today.

Take care, Ryan
