The Geek Squad is going where no geek has gone before.

Best Buy Co.'s tech-support service is expanding to eBay Inc. and conducting trials at some Target Corp. stores as the world's largest consumer-electronics retailer seeks new revenue from fixing computers and tablets.

EBay recently added around-the-clock Geek Squad support with service plans costing $29.99 for three months and $49.99 for six months, said Gregory Boutte, vice president of eBay electronics and motors in North America. Best Buy also is rolling out the Geek Squad at 28 Target Corp. stores in Denver and one in Minneapolis.
