Geeks

What a treat! We have cable TV here at Ramona Canyon. That is unusual in our travels. And Jim felt quite lucky that it happened on the first weekend of football!! Yes, that's our TV - a window shade, using our projector to give us a 3 ft+ image!
It also means we got to catch 60 Minutes and watch a wonderful segment called "Get me the Geeks!" I especially loved the conclusion: Geeks may inherit the earth, but they have no desire to rule it! If you missed it, you can watch the whole segment online. The video is on the right of the screen - click the play button to watch it. The video is primarily about The Geek Squad - a technology support company now owned by Best Buy. People often confuse us, "Geeks on Tour" with the Geek Squad. There is *no* relationship. "Geeks on Tour" is just me and Jim, but we thank The Geek Squad for popularizing the term and making sure people relate it to computer support! We focus on computer education for travelers. We sometimes send people to the Geek Squad if they need their hard drive recovered after a crash, but we'd rather teach them to make their backups regularly before a crash! Check out Geek Squad Services and Fees and Geeks on Tour Services and fees. If you watch the 60 Minutes segment, you will also meet my *favorite* geek - David Pogue. He is a columnist for the New York Times, and he knows his geek stuff! But, the best part is that he is funny. If you're still with me, and you want an educational laugh, go view this video - it's 20 minutes and worth every second. Probably the funniest part is right in the beginning.
