Alot of 16 year olds are consideribly more tech-saavy than people twice their age.

This is coming from a 17 year old, so old people can take it as a challenge/insult.

why not just start your own business?
then you get to keep ALL the money(except for uncle sammy's cut). and you can take off and go see TOOL or whoever when you want.

lol like they are going to know your age?

the whole "people will take offense to a 15 year old fixing their pc" is dumb

most people who have to call geeksquad probably wish they had a 15 year old neighbor that could help them with their pc and just give them like 30 bucks instead of giving some geek squad 100 or so an hour
