We all know how it is – the home computer has shut down and no amount of restarting it is working and everything that needs to be plugged in is in the right socket. Who do you turn to since you’re not a company with a tech department?
Well Geek Squad, a company set up 12 years ago in the USA, have now landed in the UK and, as smstextnews.com reports, launched MyGeek, a subscription service for home computer-owners.
The service costs £7 per month with a three-month minimum contract and the company is on call, via a freephone number, around the clock. A geek will then fix your problems remotely by taking control of your mouse through your internet connection, or they’ll make a home visit - although this costs extra. It's just like having an IT expert at work…
Extremely handy whether you work from home or simply have a computer at home.
