Picking out gifts can be hard. It’s much easier if you know that the person you are getting the gift for has an iPhone. There is a treasure trove of some of the very best iPhone 6s cases and accessories to choose from. Here is a little help with that pesky question “What gift should I get for…”

Mr PQ has left me to stand in the iPhone 6S line at our local Apple Store, because, in case you haven't heard iPhone 6s and 6s Plus arrives at retail stores tomorrow. I haven't been much of a line stander since he had us queue up in our sleeping bags and overnight on the sidewalk to snag an iPhone 4S in 2011. I had to hide my shoes inside my bag so they wouldn't "walk" away in the middle of the night, and I'm still scrapping gum off my bag.
Well there is no line as yet, so I'm off to run the lakes, because after all, what Mr. PQ doesn't know won't hurt him.
Good Idea: maximize your time by fitting in a workout between training clients.
Bad Idea: Leave your work out clothes at home.
Good Idea: Decide to do your weight sets in spite of wearing your personal trainer uniform pants. Should work, you move in multiple planes while training clients, how is this any different?
Bad Idea: Going with “should work”
Good Idea: Walking lunges with arms extended overhead and holding a 35 pound weight to build stabilizer muscles for hiking and rock climbing.
Good Idea: Listening to a sweeping rendition of Con Te Partiro on your iPhone 6 while doing said lunges.
Bad Idea: pay no attention to static sound that has never been present in this piece before.
Good Idea: don’t allow distractions to interrupt your workout, keep lunging.
Bad Idea: Keep lunging until you realize that “static noise” was really your work pants splitting open from crotch to knee, exposing you for all the

“Mom, can I see your phone?”
“Mom, how is your iPhone?”
Normally when one of my kids wants my iPhone it is either to play a video game that requires a larger screen like the iPhone 6S or it is because they want to enact some treachery on their technology deficient mother, like planting “shortcut” bombs into my keyboard or switching the home screen to something unseemly.
However, with the pending arrival of iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, two fortunate Quills are getting an upgrade as the release of each new Apple model generates a succession of hand me downs that rivals the excitement of opening day for Star Wars,The Force Awakens. Oh, who am I kidding? Mr. PQ will have us lining up for the midnight of the midnight showing in December.
The fortunate kiddo who inherits my iPhone 6 is diligently insuring that it is well tended. Dear, it’s been in a Luxury Pocketbook since day 1, and it is in immaculate condition, except for the fact

Mrs PQ is busy prepping for iPhone 6s and 6s Plus cases in Addition to prepping the Quills assault on higher education and the oncoming school year. She will return with musings and hilarity next week. Not that she thinks she so insightful or funny, but summer is over, back to routine and as Jimmy Fallon Tweeted: "First day of school, the day moms can go back to drinking their wine in clear glasses rather then a Gatorade bottle."
Big Apple week coming up, big announcements here at PQ!
Some friends of mine and I were recently discussing our adventures with surfing, focusing primarily on the times when, having been rolled by a wave, we exited the surf with significantly less clothing on then when we entered. Being as we were all wearing bikinis at the time, there isn't much modesty remaining when a significant amount of your clothing is shredding down the beach with the returning tide. We all agreed that about the only antidote to death by embarrassment (bar ass just shouldn’t be the formative part of that word) was to observe someone else in the same predicament. Never underestimate the value of a sympathetic soul.
I have recently grown a very sympathetic soul for grannie panties. Not because I have aged up to that category of lingerie, but rather because a few of our customers have been blighted by this affliction of their iPhone case. At least that is what they have taken to calling the over stretching of the elastic band on their Little Pocket Book, Luxury
Mr. PQ wants me to write my assessment of the pending iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. I imagine this has more to do with the fact that I keep referring to the new “free touch” feature and that he has been away on business for a week; Mrs. PQ talking free touch is sounding pretty sexy right about now. While dreams of “free touch” have floated through Mr. PQ’s head, I’ve occupied my evenings reading up on MacRumors, 9 to 5 Mac, The Loop, CNET, Wired etc to broker an understanding of what all the hub bub is about.
Last night I learned that there is no such thing “free touch” in Apple iPhone parlance; rather the term is “force touch" which frankly doesn’t sound appealing at all. Especially as I just

Contrary to Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, the answer to the universe is no longer 42, the new answer is Apple Watch. At least this is the conclusion the myriad of alarms sounding across my many Apple devices is driving me toward. The new universal question should be, what color wood Pad & Quill Stand for Apple Watch should I purchase to complete my new horologic experience, Mahogany or Cherry? It seems the universal question within the tech world is whether Apple Watch will really be that big of a thing.
“It’s just a ploy to sell more iPhone 6 and 6P.” That’s a bad thing? Not for our many Apple Store reps and techies who like their jobs and the great peripherals like Macworld.com, 9to5mac.com, MacRumors.com and others.
