Is Geek Squad Now the ‘Peek Squad’?

From NewsFactor:

When Best Buy Co. Inc. bought the Geek Squad five years ago, the two companies pledged to “protect the world from the assault of computerized technology Relevant Products/Services.” Geek Squad “agents” even wore badges and drove vehicles resembling police cars.

But as this squadron of techno-nerds has mushroomed into the largest collection of computer troubleshooters in the world, it has become increasingly difficult for the firm to police its own employees.

In recent months, allegations of agents copying pornography, music and alluring photos from customers’ computers have circulated on the Internet. Some bloggers now call it the “Peek Squad.”
