Geek - A person with an eccentric devotion to a particular interest.
Learning new things including the things not related to us, will usually help to improve our life + life style.
Geek, being as a geek is different where they know most of the real and imaginary world things :). But as a human being, we should be a little bit of geek so that will really help to improve our life or at-least reducing our cost of living. The reason why I’m saying this is, every day I see lots of people with problem where those problem can be solved by theirself by taking a single step forward into that problem , but most of the time that problem goes to third party to solve.
Here is one experiment that i faced recently,
My friend’s Galaxy S II got some OS problem that will cost $40 and minimum of 1 Day to solve it by authorized Service Center but if you are a little bit Geek, it’ll cost $0 and 1 Hour.
Another experiment, This time it’s a hardware problem that will cost $210 but if you can put little bit of effort, you can finish that job for $ 120 with your self-satisfaction :).
Note: Those hardware parts can be purchased through online (Eg: ebay)
So whenever you got a problem, first try to solve it in a Geek perspective. If geek-gorithm not working then go for alternative ways.
