It seems like our digital privacy is under increasing attack lately, whether it's the U.S. Border Patrol searching your electronic items for WMD's or the computer repair guys stealing your "adult entertainment".  A number of former Geek Squad employees have admitted to viewing and copying images and other digital content from computers brought in for service, after a lawsuit was filed against the company because an anonymous Geek Squad-er wrote to a consumer advocacy group bragging about similar activities.  Said that mystery employee - "If you have any interesting pictures of yourself or others on your computer, they -- will -- be -- found."  Actions and admissions like this can further damage the credibility of all computer repair shops, and may in fact push more consumers to explore the DIY market.
