Back to school season means parents everywhere are looking for pencils, paper, backpacks and more to prepare their kids for the fall. It also means questions for the Geek Squad on what technology will best help their kids with their school work. Thanks to the explosion of cheap netbook computers, one of the more common questions we’re seeing is “Netbook or Laptop, which should I get?”
As a Geek Squad Agent, I get a lot of technology questions. Many stem from Internet myths. Lately, I have been getting a lot of “Can a cell phone really explode” after the report of a Chinese man allegedly being killed by an exploding cell phone battery.
