If you get a call out of the blue from a "technician" saying you have an infected computer, it's likely a scam. Share this with your friends and family to protect them from fake tech support fraud.

And remarkably the GUI used to access the file system was quite similar to the "fly overhead viewing down on blocks that represented files" interface used in Hackers and Lawnmower Man, because that's how the big boys rolled back in the day.

It's not a typical summer camp with bonfires and sports. Instead, the Geek Squad Academy gives students a chance to interact with the newest technology on the market, including 3-D printers and robotics. 

More than 100 students attended the free 2-day camp at Miles Park school in Cleveland, Ohio. The goal is give students hands-on experience and get them excited about a career in the field.
