Getting your tech presents to work

Yay! Someone gave you a GPS for your car this holiday! But, uh, how do you install it?

The Geek Squad has created a series of videos called "Two Minute Miracles," where they will show you how to set up your new tech gift. So before getting frustrated and returning it to the store, visit the site and see if they have an answer for you.

The videos they currently have online are for

  • Car GPS
  • Car MP3 player
  • Digital photo slideshows
  • Game system streaming
  • HDTV connections
  • Setting up a wireless router

I did a story awhile back about what its like to have the job of a Geek Squad agent, and the agent told me that tons of people return wireless routers because they can't get them to work, but nothing is broken with the router. As an agent he often has to come out to get them working, and even he admitted it wasn't easy the first few times. So before paying for someone to come out and help, perhaps this two-minute video can help. (Then again, if wireless could easily be set up in two minutes, it would be a miracle...)
