Best Buy and Apple team up for repairs

When I lived in Montana, I was about six hours away from an Apple Store. Still, today, I am an hour away from one.

How close is the nearest Best Buy? 10 minutes.

That’s why I love this news.

Best Buy can now perform Apple-certified repairs. This includes same-day iPhone repairs. Being a certified repair is a big deal because it will keep your warranty in-tact.

Repairs can be requested at support.apple.com/repair.

Apple’s press release is here.

Apple’s New iPod touch

It took me a little bit to wrap my mind around this one because I wasn’t satisfied with the news. Last week, Apple announced a new iPod touch. The iPod hasn’t been updated since 2015…and it shows.

The biggest updates are a new processor (the same A10 chip from the iPhone 7), new colors and updated storage options. Not very exciting.

I was so bullish on it at first because it is not for me.

But, this is the cheapest option to get someone into the Apple and iOS ecosystem. At $199, this allows kids, Android users, developers and those who are curious, join in the Apple fun. Also, as a designated music player, it isnt a bad idea to have something this small. With a 4-inch screen and super slim body, I can see the benefit of going out for a run with something like this.

Obviously previous generations of the iPod touch were selling enough for Apple to put out a new one. Just because I dont have a use for it, doesn’t mean that it is a lame product. So, there is a use for the new iPod touch.

Do you have any intentions on buying the new iPod touch? Let me know on twitter and Instagram!

The Game Boy Turns 30

Y’all remember the Game Boy?

It is unbelievable that this thing is 30 years old today.

I can’t remember at what age I got my Nintendo Game Boy but this was my introduction to the video game world.

Tetris, Mario, Ninja Turtles and Pokémon were just a couple of the games that I remember playing with my cousins. I remember my cousin bringing over the Game Boy camera and different friends sharing different accessories. It is amazing how far we have come.

This led me to the path of Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo Switch.

While I’m not a hardcore gamer, nor am I any good (ask my wife), I have always had video games in my life. So cheers Nintendo! And happy birthday Game Boy! Thanks for the memories.

AirPower is Dead

Sad to say, it is true. AirPower is not happening.

From TechCrunch:


“After much effort, we’ve concluded AirPower will not achieve our high standards and we have cancelled the project. We apologize to those customers who were looking forward to this launch. We continue to believe that the future is wireless and are committed to push the wireless experience forward,” said Dan Riccio, Apple’s senior vice president of Hardware Engineering in an emailed statement today.
