I shop brick and mortar because they take cash and they don't ask for my name, address and phone number.
It only took RS thirty or so years to get that clue.
I was beginning to believe the Radio Shack mantra, until I wandered into my neighborhood store the other day. They had an impressive array of sensors and kits for stand-alone, Rasberry Pi, Basic Stamp and Arduino, as well as the aforementioned systems themselves. Also the LittleBits stuff, including the Korg synth.
They made some effort to get on the Maker bandwagon a few years ago. I think it's only now starting to pay off, where the geeks (like me) are discovering that they actually have some interesting stuff again. Sure, you'll pay a few bucks more than web-order, but you'll get it right away, even on a Sunday. But then again, there's a Fry's ten minutes from where I live, and just their components section alone puts RS to shame. Silly RS closed the two stores near me (one because the strip mall people wouldn't move their sign up into vacated spaces from stores that left), but kept the one across the street from Fry's.
South Korea has already mentioned plans to take this film, put it on dvd, and float balloons across the border to incite rebellion in the population.
That's nice. Do they also plan to float DVD players across the border too, so it's not just a shiny drinks coaster?
But... but... but... MUH APPLE MUH-NOPOLY!
Never mind that Sony had already pulled it and is now changing their mind at the last minute. Nope, can't let the facts get in the way of a good clickbait story.
I already watched Team America: World Police, a much better movie.
Also, AMERICA, FUCK YEAH!
Hey, I still haven't seen Star Wars episode 1, 2, or 3!
But I finally saw Team America last week after all that hubbub about The Interview.
I wonder when businesses will stop trying to put band-aids on this problem and actually build a WAN between themselves that isn't the Internet, nor is connected to the Internet directly.
It won't happen unless they hire people who have a lot of clue and know how to make such things work. Which is apparently the exact opposite of what they have been doing.
Except that there aren't any "undocumented" Cubans. They just have to reach the beach and are automatically on a fast track to citizenship, with no need for Harry Reid to pander to them. A big reason for the embargo was that Fidel's Cuba basically seized the property of Cuban citizens who escaped to the US, and there are still a lot of expats and their descendants who aren't happy about basically having all their stuff stolen from them.
The undocumented from Mexico and south of there don't care about Cuba.
