The Death Of Dick Smiths

This is interesting:
"The death of RadioShack in the US a year ago, with $1 billion in debt, should have been a warning sign. Radioshack went from being very geeky and selling electronics parts to being just another place to buy a mobile phone — a path Dick Smith also seems to be on."

When Dick Smith sold things I wanted to buy I could spend a lot of time and money with them, now I buy online, not because I want to but simply because I have no choice as they don't stock in their stores items I want to purchase....

Update: 4/12/2015.
