  • Radio Shack rebranding: Why? Why!?

  • Radio Shack doesn't understand the Xbox 360

    So yeah, this picture isn’t possible. Any Xbox 360 owner knows that you cannot sit the console on the HDD side.

When will you return to your random electronic parts origin and leave the low profit margin gaming stuff to the big… Read More

    Since the launch of Apple’s super-popular iPhone, competing handset manufacturers have been scrambling to produce phones that at least somewhat replicate Cupertino’s device. So it should stand to reason that the look and feel of Apple’s stores, which are quite popular with shoppers, might begin to appear in competing retailers’ stores. Case in point, it’s… Read More
