Security firm Comodo is billing its upcoming "GeekBuddy" software as "your own personal geek, anytime." Summed up, that's exactly what GeekBuddy purports to be, offering a bonanza of tech related help, from virus detection/removal to email setup, and even optimizing your PC to run a little greener.
"GeekBuddy is the easiest way to get instant support with common problems which keep computers from functioning at peak performance," Comodo claims. "Our next-generation computer support service combines hands-on support with Comodo software."
You can think of GeekBuddy as a support service and software rolled into one. Comodo promises its technicians will be on standby 24/7 "to perform all problem diagnoses and repairs via a remote connection," giving users constant access to a technician to help with all those mundane tasks your family usually calls you up with in middle of the night.
GeekBuddy will ship in September with an estimated street price of $50/year, with a 30-day free trial available now.
