Sadly, Radio Shack is following in the final footsteps of a whole slew of other national chain electronics stores who have gone on to take a dirt nap. I'll give them credit though, they managed to stave off the death rattle for a long time, certainly a lot longer than most. I'll miss them because they always seemed to have that odd adapter, connector or cable I was looking for. Unlike the other stores, this is the place from which you could purchase the items for whatever hobby that you had unique geek-dom type passion for. I thinks that's what made them unique. This was also the place where so many techno-phobic (usually elderly) folks would purchase technology items, at a huge marked up premium, as the counter help would gladly explain how items worked and how to use them. As if this were a virtual wake for the famed Tandy retailer, makers of such price inflated, cultural electronic icons as the cube shaped weather radio, please share what you'll miss about them after they're gone, better yet, if you can post a pic.
