Why you shouldn't trust Geek Squad ever again

Uh....yeah...never would (or will I) ever let the Geek Squad" touch anything other than my TV.

Best Buy has quite a support service in Geek Squad. It's the only national tech service center, and it makes house calls. I had a tech come to calibrate my HDTV set, and the difference was night and day.
