Computer repair blues

(even if you're not Canadian there's a bevy of useful info there)

Ever wonder how calling up one of those "Geek Squad" computer repair services would work out? Well The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Markatplace program did an undercover investigation on how on site computer repair sevices like Nerds on Site and Best Buy's Geek Squad perform. The results are astounding; so much so it prompted other computer repair professionals to remark that if things keep going like this their profession will be thought of no better than used car salesmen (yikes!)

If it wasn't so'd be funny.
