    As The Inquirer so eloquently puts it, "only in LA". After answering a Best Buy Geek Squad call, technician Hao Kuo Chi was accused of hiding a camera phone in the shower of Sarah Vasquez. Sarah Vasquez got suspicious when she saw a little red blinking light in her shower. Thinking quickly, she found the camera phone, disabled it, and ripped out the memory card. Taking the thing to her local Verizon store, they quickly discovered all the steamy shower footage. However, in a move that Hao Kuo Chi will probably regret later, he left footage of himself setting up the camera phone on the camera phone. The Best Buy store knew absolutely nothing about this camera being hidden in one of their customer's showers, so this is going to get very interesting very quickly.

    The Inquirer also points out that if this had happened in the UK, it would have been quite embarrassing, since the Carphone Warehouse is promoting Geek Squad heavily.

    Maybe Best Buy was trying to get better footage for a new Geek Squad commercial.

    LOL sad to see that a Japanese can be so retardly stupid..

    Nothing bestbuy can do about it really besides maybe adding a medical/legal backround check to their hiring process.

    Well actually, they can show a video of this guy being "oh so intimate" with his new cellmate Bubba, to all potential employees. That might curb their enthusiasm.

    The guy is a perverted retard, no doubt about it.

    Please watch your comments, they are on the brink of being racist, and are inappropriate.

    Ignorant asshole.

    I'm pretty sure that name is either Chinese or Vietnamese. Seriously though, listen to Zalmann's suggestion and watch what you say.

    I wasnt trying to offend any Japanese people, I was more or less saying that they are smart people who I would not expect to see do something this stupid... but yeah I guess every place has to have some idiots.

    I guess I shouldn't of said LOL, but I said it because I found the guys stupidity funny.

    Edit: yeah I know hes not Japanese now anyway:p I do not know much about Japan/China surnames elc, because that is not where I am going to spend my life.. it would take to long learn another language and than proceed with life.

    Sorry if I came off looking like an asshole.

    hmm i think the key to the problem is Geek Squad just another horror story resulting from using the Geek Squad...Beware stay away from Geek Squad service;) They will not fix your issue they will charge you and then you will probably be coerced into buying something you dont need .

    Wat the heck does Asian or Japs got anything to do with this? After all, we all have ill-perf-csycho-minded in all races. :shadedshu
    And in this case, what a waste.

    ROFL LiNKiN, so true. I think its distasteful and goes to show why everyone needs to be somewhat computer literate. That way, things like this wont happen.
