I highly doubt there are "techs" that do not go through at least some e-learning module before they attempt to repair computers. I would assume there is an internal forum they have as well that works similarly to this one but for the company. It is true that there are a few bad apples here and there though.

And no, I don't work at BB.

I couldn't imagine saying, " oh yeah, call up walmart, they repair PCs" ..lol

I think you have a loose definition of what a respectable opinion is, then. To be respectable, at the very least an opinion needs to be justifiable, without blatant disregard of information in order to make it justifiable. If someone covers their ears and yells "la la la la la la la" whenever something contrary to what they believe is said aloud near them, then you can't exactly say their opinion should be respected.

And before someone complains, I am not singling anyone out here.

This is a forum - it for discussion. If everybody just put their opinion out there and never reacted to others' this would be a pretty boring place

The list goes on, and quite frankly, saying "Wal-Mart owns" is like saying "I like getting daily colonoscopies without sedatives!"
Well it's cheap and convenient for me.....unfortunately that's what I'm looking for in a grocery store

I buy from Kroger as well, but only when on that side of town....I don't really have the time to concern myself with the politics of retail stores.

Fortunately my local economy can support small, medium, and Wal-mart sized grocery/retail stores. They all serve their own purpose for the customer. Some people don't want to go to Wal-Mart because it's massive and often busy.
Some people (myself included) choose smaller grocers like Kroger due to specialty cheeses, meats, etc.
I'll drive a block to Dollar General when I need some chips or aluminum foil, but I won't do a full shopping spree there.
A lot of their success is dependent on their innovative business model. One of the innovations that made them successful was refrigerated trucks IIRC....not many companies (if not any) were using these to transport food from warehouses to stores.
It's really about what niche they fit in......you may view Wal-Mart is evil, but %95 of America disagrees with you. Sorry

On a more OT note, I think this a wise expansion of their business model. They obviously see the ludicrous amount of money being lost to outside sources, and they're getting a piece of the pie. They would be fools not to capitalize on the millions of PC ignorant people that buy computers from them......
Whether you think that Wal-Mart is an acceptable place to shop or not, you'd be hard pressed to say that they don't know how to operate a retail company.

95% of America doesn't know any better so that doesn't count.

How many people would still shop at Petland if they understood what puppy mills are? It all goes back to what the consumer is aware of. Of course there will be those who couldn't care less, but a lot of people would think twice if they knew the whole story.
