> So ..... Radio Shack is (more or less) finally dead.

RadioShack had it essentially right in the 2014 Super Bowl commercial - the 80s called and they did want their store back. What they screwed up was thinking that meant the old store had to go and be replaced with the current monstrosity.

RadioShack should have brought back the store of the 1980s and updated it items like cheap cables, Raspberry Pi kits, etc. I.E. hobbyist and do it yourself stuff. Yes, they still would have to close a number of locations (do you really need a ratshack on every corner?) but what would have been left behind would have thrived...
