Today on E-Gear and Dealerscope

Monday's story: Best Buy hires a new executive with the express purpose of building the brand among women, and jump-starting sales to the female audience.

Tuesday's story: The Star Tribune publishes an investigative piece detailing a rise in complaints that Best Buy Geek Squad employees have been peering at, and sometimes copying, photos and other files from the hard drives of customers- while quoting a former employee as saying that "any attractive young woman who drops off her computer with the Geek Squad should assume that her photos will be looked at."

Have fun handling that, new executive.

Also, Panasonic introduces three new cameras- and a new TV for Mayor Bloomberg, XM will offer a la carte pricing, and TiVo introduced a $300 HD box, which has not a single essential feature that I'm not already getting from my $12/month Comcast DVR.
