    UGH!!! As much as I LOATHE both Best Buy and their Geek Squad ($50 to install an App on your computer!), I don’t see how a normal person without any computer skills or any friends/relatives who are tech savvy can get by without them (or a similar company). I mean, if your computer breaks down and your only two options are either to (A) Take it to the Geek Squad or (B) waste two hours of your life talking to the computer company’s barely-intelligible customer service rep in a country far, far away, I would always go with option (A).
