Proving once again that installation of electronic doo-dads is just too darned hard, Wal-Mart will get into Best Buy's "Geek Squad" business by launching Solution Stations. Walmart and Dell (initially) will install and train customers how to use things like HDTV, home theater, wireless, and computer upgrades.

A dozen of the centers will open in Dallas - seemingly the home of the hopelessly inept.

No word on how to make the universal remote work universally. The solution to the blinking 12:00 was to kill the whole videotape industry and convert to DVD with no clock.
