No time off for you.

What it do, everybody? Fall is officially here according to the UPS calendar on the wall, and that means it’s about time to head to the cider mill or the pumpkin patch, break out the hoodies and long pants, and start raking leaves. Ugh, I hate yard work. But who can say no to jumping into a pile of red, orange and amber with the kids? Not me.

You may or may not have heard that Apple is declining vacation requests from employees during the first week of October. And that could only mean…. retail patronage influx for the IPHONE 5!. Huzzah. Maybe its just me, but this year seems a little light on all the iPhone ado- maybe it’s because there’s no hugely dramatic design change, maybe it’s because Steve Jobs isn’t driving the buzz, or maybe it’s just the three extra months of waiting that has everybody turning up the ambivalent knob. Still, it’s exciting to anticipate what Apple has in mind for the iPhone 5, as well as the Sprint iPhone and the rumored iPhone light (4S?). Here we go.

And, as is a fall custom, a quick check on football. Chiefs = still bad. With nearly half the roster on the DL, it’s a wonder that they came within half a field length of beating Philip Rivers and the Chargers. Broken, battered and incompetent is no way to go through life, son. If you live in or pay any attention to the midwest, it’s time to panic again in the Big 12, which is now a mathematical anomaly at nine schools. Tired of losing to everyone in the third or fourth best conference in the NCAA, Texas A&M has officially moved to the SEC, the best conference in the NCAA. Smart move, Aggies. And thanks for pushing the rest of us to stay and support the league over the last few months. Not that anyone can blame you. Let’s go Big 9! Now if we just drop one more it’s back to the good old days:

Ok, everyone, I think it’s about time for me to stop ranting. Have a great week, and we’ll be back with more iPhone news as it happens.
