It would be nice if the price of the Geek Squad labelled items were to be reduced... Most comparable items on line or at other stores are about half the price.

Best Buy is a sinking ship.

Why is this a story? Honestly. When did a new CIO become front page news?

hires of this level are very rarely made in 48 hours - this had to have been in the works for a while - that's the story. I've seen companies go months without a CIO while looking for a new one - unless the replacement came from within - which this one didn't.

The problem Best Buy has is that when all you do is hype everything regardless of any actual substance, such as many of the in-store promotions, they start to believe it themselves and then don't take real action to improve the company. From this press release you would think they just brought Steve Jobs back from the dead and hired him, when in fact this guys claim to fame is getting high-speed internet access for Starbuck stores and then putting a wireless router in the store.

Geek Squad steals money from customers who don't understand computers. They give you stuff you don't need and charge a ridiculous price on it. Half the time it is a minor fix.
