Fixing PC requires PI license in Texas




from PC Mag comes this additional reminder to be happy I don't live in Texas:

A recently passed law requires that Texas computer-repair technicians have a private-investigator license, according to a story posted by a Dallas-Fort Worth CW affiliate.

In order to obtain said license, technicians must receive a criminal justice degree or participate in a three-year apprenticeship.


(It seems likely that this is based on an unintended wording of the Texas law, not an attempt to eventually deputize the Geek Squad.)
