“Clash Of Clans” Anyone?

Hello M:R Nation –

Have you ever heard of a game called “Clash Of Clans”? This game is something else. I have not only been obsessed with it since seeing a national commercial for it, I have been kicked out of a clan by my own brother and denied access to a new clan by Lennie, one of my employees here at Mission Repair. So I guess what I am saying is when it comes to this game, having blood relations nor signing someones paycheck matters. It is every person for themselves.

I have been playing the game for about a month and this is as far as I have gotten: photo

If you play this game, you can tell that i’m at a pretty intermediate level. I come nowhere close to some of my technicians and I think ever Ryan (Owner of Mission Repair) is doing better than me 🙂 I mean, can you really blame us? Even the Kansas City Royals are addicted to this game and they… well play games for a living.

So where is the relevancy here to broken stuff? Well, let me just tell you about an email I received yesterday that is the motivation behind this post.

I received an email from a VERY upset mother from California who had just witnessed her son throw his iPad Mini due to an “epic loss in an Attack”. She said “not only did he throw the iPad, he almost took out the TV in the process! Now the screen is cracked and it won’t do anything when he slides his finger on it.” While I didn’t dare tell her that I understood the frustration her son felt, I wisely identified with her and mentioned my experiences, as my son had also cracked the screen on his iPad…3 times.

In short, we were able to set her up with our iPad Mini Glass Repair Service  and at the same time, give her son a well needed break from this horribly addictive game, that feeds of the impatience of blokes such as myself. I guess thats why the makers of this game rakes in $5,000,000 a day.

Anywho, if you find yourself in the same position as this poor mother, give us a call @ 866-638-8402. We will not only repair the device that your child or husband threw, but we can also hold onto it for a few weeks to give them a much need cleansing if you’d prefer :-).

Cheers, Troy

Adopt An iPad?

Hello M:R Nation –

Our marketing department comes up with some pretty clever stuff. Some of the ideas come to fruition and some never see the light of day. Something interesting that came across my desk recently was a play on pet adoption. Instead of a cute puppy or hamster, it utilizes iPads and other devices that we see abandoned here at our Kansas City location. While we might still use this idea, I though it was cute enough to share to our over 800,000 unique blog readers (shameless boast). Here is our “Adopt a device” program in its infancy:

Meet our iPad Mini!

This scuffed up guy once enjoyed playing angry birds, watching netflix and surfin’ the net for new restaurants in the KC area. After being dropped, resulting in a cracked screen this iPad Mini’s owner decided to replace him instead of repairing. This neglected tablet is looking for a forever home and a new LCD Screen! Adopt this iPad Mini and take it home for only $150. (Adoption fee includes new LCD screen and repair costs by our certified technicians!)

Our plan here is to take unwanted devices and offer to you for free and all you would pay is the price that it would be to repair the device. While this sounds like a great idea to us, we would like to test this with our readers. Our goal is to keep these devices out of the land fills and get them out of our building to be completely honest. So what do you think? Would you adopt a device? You have a chance for a low cost device that will last you years to come!

Take a moment and let me know what you think via the above poll.

Cheers, Troy
