Posted April 6, 2007 - By Stephen Johnson

TheFeed rags on Second Life pretty hard, without having ever actually set virtual foot inside the massively multi-player virtual world. Sometimes we think: "Maybe we're wrong and we should give this thing a second chance." But then we hear about some other corporate entity that's moving into the virtual space and we think: "No thanks. I'm marketed to enough in my first life."

Today's corporation moving into Second Life: Best Buy. The unhelpful retailer with low prices is opening "Geek Squad Island," a spot in Second Life where its Geek Squad technical support workers offer free computer advice to avatar with gigantic fake penises.
