I thought this was old news? This has been well known for years.

It is very old news, but the fact that Geek Squad is still in business proves that not enough people know about it.

The FBI has a program for rewarding 'leads'. I would be surprised if nearly every repair shop is not doing this.

Everyone does this. If you give anything to anyone they look at your browsing history. If you give anyone your data you are retarded.

The case stretches back to November 2011 when an image of a young naked girl was found on the hard drive of Californian doctor, Mark Rettenmaier.

It's older than fuck.

The problem I see is if you're paying people to find "X", you have no idea if they planted it or not. It has nothing to do with "Kiddie Porn" and all to do with a system that can be easily abused. Is there a customer you don't like? Spend a few hours on a seedy torrent, find some files and put them on his computer and make money.

There's something wrong with someone that wouldn't report child pornography. All they need to do is distribute reminders to technicians. There's something creepy about conditioning people to think that trying to rescue children is something you do for $500.

This may be old as some proclaim; but this is the first I have heard of it. Thanks

I will never ever take a computer, hard drive, phone, tablet or any device with storage to get "repaired". Yes, I'm paranoid. However, that doesn't mean they aren't out to get me.

If you dont know how to fix something. Then you probably shouldnt have it. I know every piece of my computer and I can build my truck from the ground up but I dont know fuck all about microwaves so I don't own one.

I can't wait to hear your excuse for being alive, 'cuz you can't fix that shit either, yet here you are.

Good to see you are still on the site. At least one sane person is here.

...being alive, 'cuz you can't fix that shit either...

Nothing a simple belt can't fix.

What's to fix with being alive?

Retarded logic. I don't know how to repair foundation, but I have a house. I can't repair a tv or cable modem, but I have those. What about an oven? It's almost like society works because no one person can do everything, so we have to help each other. And buildinga computer is literally Lego tier. You just plug the shit into the pre determined slots. Are you creating the hard drive from scratch? Did you mold all the plastic? Do you now how to machine an engine block if your cars motor goes bad? Yeah.

Lol your definition of "fixing" something is buying a part to replace a broken one. Congratulations you know how to use a screwdriver and a socket wrench.

You have no idea of how to truly fix broken components on a computer or an automobile so cut the bullshit.

[–] Anoxim 3 points 0 points (+3|-3) ago 

Is replacing broken parts not fixing the issue? Do I have to smith a rim of wrought iron and vulcanize my own rubber for tires every time I replace a flat? Some fixes aren't as easy as pulling a dent or cutting out a rust patch. Some fixes require OEM parts. But you can keep calling Geek Squad or the mechanic every time you need something done. I'm sure they appreciate your money.
