Nerd Alert rocks home tech repair boat

Consumer and small business tech support is a $30 billion industry with U.S. households accounting for 40 percent of that, according to Parks Associates, a market research and consulting firm based in Dallas.

The Geek Squad offers on-site training that starts at $149 an hour, according to the Best Buy website. Data recovery services are $49.99 if you ship your computer to the company or have it done in-store.

Nerd Alert charges $40 an hour for training and troubleshooting, and the clock starts ticking when the tech enters the home. The tech keeps 70 percent and Nerd Alert gets 30 percent. They are hooked up with customers through the Nerd Alert website, nerdalert.com.
