    Well, there goes the hip

    Hip factor that is. When Radio Shack starts selling a particular product, what was once cool becomes commonplace and ubiquitous. But the iPod has already been this way for a quite a while now. Still love mine though.

    HP version

    I believe I've seen the HP ipod in RS already... I wouldn't think HP would be too happy about this. btw..I keep seeing HP versions of the ipod and ipod mini at my local costco..about $10 cheaper than elswhere.

    HP Version Has Been There

    I've seen HP iPod's in Radio Shack for months. And the "we've got blank stares" comment is unfortunately coming true. It's sad because years ago employees there seemed to be a lot more knowledgable about electronics.

    Radio Shack

    Radio Shack has always been the whipping boy for the geeks out there- People have been saying the same thing 10 years ago..and probably 20 for that matter. Gosh, is Radio Shack employees give you blank stares, what do you get when you ask a Best Buy employee a question?!?! The whole statement about employee knowledge is sooo tired. Give them a break. They are paid the same way they have been for 20 years too.

    re: Radio Shack

    "You've got questions, we've got blank stares." -- I thought it was funny - but you are right, pretty much any retail establishment these days. :-(

    back in the day, Radio Shack was hands down the best place to go to get CB paraphernalia. ( 'citizen band radio' for don't remember the movie Convoy and Smokey & the Bandit ) :-)

    RS

    Everybody makes fun of Radio Snack but it has always been a great place of last resort to find a component you need. Having said that . . . Apple is really on a f'ing roll now, Farina is gone from HP and SJ is moving in.
