What happens when a local television news station (one in Canada where they actually have real news) stages a computer problem and calls in 10 computer repair companies to diagnose the problem? NERDS!!!!

I saw this segment when it aired. This video is actually an edited down preview. The full segment is a bit more detailed.

As a computer guy, I'm not surprised. On the one hand, I know how hard it is to identify a problem and make a correct diagnosis on the spot. On the other hand, I've had technicians try to bullshit me before.

Let's be honest. The computer repair people are the lowest rung on the IT ladder anyway. Most of them would abandon such jobs if it weren't for the fringe benefit of getting to suck all the data and porn off your computers during the repair process.
