Hack A Day has a great piece on the news about Radio Shack declaring bankruptcy.
This is not a eulogy; Radio Shack isn’t quite dead just yet, and eulogies are reserved for the loved ones in our lives. Radio Shack is neither. We all have a rich history with Radio Shack, and next time you’re buying some resistors on Mouser or Digikey, just remember we’re living in a different world now.
Yup, a store that will gladly sell you a cell phone, satellite TV or an old digital camera, but you’re much better off looking for that resistor you need in the shelf yourself.
