Anyone who has called upon Geek Squad to help them out of a tech jam probably noticed the badge our Agent had clipped to his or her belt. In front. On the Agent’s left side.
What most people don’t know is there is set of principles and standards surrounding the way an Agent handles their badge. For instance, according to tradition, an Agent is required to carry their badge at all times. And Agents “may not use your badge to obtain free donuts more than once a month.” The badge is a symbol of being a member of an elite band of technology warriors and Agents, as a group, take them very seriously.
With the holidays nearly upon us, many of our Agents and clients will be travelling sometime during the next ten days. And it’s a good bet that at least some of those travelers will be going through Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, the third busiest airport in the US in terms of total passengers.
On February 4th, the Libary of Congress in Washington DC hosted the Digital Learning Day Expo, a conference promoting digital learning and technology education in the classroom. Geek Squad was there, presenting on the Game Programming class taught at our Geek Squad Academy camps.
So, you’ve done it again. You waited until the eleventh hour to take care of those hard gift decisions. Yeah, you figured something would jump out of some TV or online ad, it would be the perfect thing and your problems would be solved. No such luck.
Each time I return from getting my teeth cleaned, I swear it will be different this time: I’ll develop better dental health habits – brush after every meal, floss at least once a day – in order to avoid the uncomfortable gum scraping (and guilt-inducing “tsk-tsk”) from my hygienist.
The digital age has revolutionized everything around us — including cooking dinner. Whether you’re a novice in the kitchen or a skilled chef, there are a number of smartphone apps, online resources and gadgets that can make your time in the kitchen much less frantic, and much more productive and fun.
It’s that time of year again. Time for togetherness and fellowship, Holiday parties and Open Houses, seeing old friends, entertaining relatives and sitting down for large, traditional meals. In today’s world, your guests will bring more than cheese balls and fruit cakes – many will be visiting with their own devices and special technology needs.
Not a lot in our lives these days is more personal than those cool slabs of connectivity in our pockets – our phones. No matter what systems power our devices – IOS or Android, RIM or Windows – we each make the device ours in countless ways by adding everything from apps to maps, from tunes to tweets. It’s how we talk to the world, how we listen, how we play – and how we work.
Thanksgiving is the time of year for family, food, football, and shopping. It’s also a time for getting lost on the way to visit relatives, cleaning up crazy kitchen messes and dealing with crowds of people looking for a great sale. Fortunately, Geek Squad is here to help you learn about how your smartphone can help.
