Yeah, RadioShack is turning into the Shack

So RadioShack is now the Shack. They’re also going to put a huge laptop in New York and one in San Fran. You’ll be able to chat with people on these laptops. Homeless people will eventually pee on both.

I personally think this is one of the stupidest ideas ever but hey, what do I know. After all, naming your store after a place the guy from Sling Blade would hide out after he killed his momma might be a good idea for some marketing executives and remember. Clearly a ramshackle old cottage that has become a haven for crack fiends and pederasts is exactly what they want me to think about when I’m shopping for TVs. I, for one, probably won’t be going into any Shacks for the next few decades.
