Turn In Your Brackets!

Hello M:R Nation –

The NCAA Tournament starts today and there is no better way to kick off spring time! Even if you are not a basketball fan, you have to admit, it’s fun to fill out a bracket and try to win a few bucks. This year, even Warren Buffet has gotten in on the fun and has decided to put up $1,000,000,000. Yes, that is 9 zeros! I wonder what his bracket looks like? Do you think he has Nebraska or Creighton going farther?

Given that we reside in a state where the creator of basketball is buried, you can say that we are naturally a little basketball crazy. You should see it, the Mission Repair staff goes hog wild this time of the year. We have a mixture of Kansas, Wichita State and Kansas State fans among us and they are not afraid to throw their team under the bus when it comes to their brackets!

You see, we don’t constantly obsess over Tablet and Smartphone repairs around here. This is proof that we are somewhat human and like to have fun just as much as you! Speaking of you? What do you do for March Madness? Have any crazy superstitions to help your team win? Does your office have a bracket challenge like ours? If you care to share, email me at Troy@missionrepair.com, I just might have some surprise savings for your next repair!

Cheers, Troy

The Kindle Fire Is Gaining Momentum!

Hello M:R  Nation –

I recently read an article that talked about web usage per tablet. Something interesting came out of that article. The Kindle Fire is out there in droves! With the iPad maintaining the highest percentage of users at 78.86%, this is actually a decrease for them. 7.14% to be exact.

The Kindle Fire is showing up as a massive 7.51% which is actually a very large number considering the ever so popular Samsung Tablets are only at 4.39%. What has caused this? Some say it has to do with increasing sales of the Kindle Fire, others say that it might just be that a good amount of iPad users are also iPhone 5 users which just happened to soar to a 8.27% usage share. Keep in mind, we are talking millions and millions of units here, so while these %’s seem small, it actually reflects a huge number.

Either way, this has a large impact here at Mission Repair. The more these devices are use, the more support our customers need. We love to be the company offering this support on the very wide range of technology that is out on the market today.  so if you find yourself in need of this kind of support, give us a shout at 866-638-8402 or email at support@missionrepair.com

Cheers, Troy
