Radioshack

It’s sad that RadioShack closed. Not because the stores were nice (that’s why they closed) but because of the historical significance of the company. There no other store that is what RadioShack was before it got the urge to suck badly at mobiles and big screen TVs. This is despite the dramatic resurgence of the ‘maker’ culture that fueled its golden age. The company’s failure to attach itself to this movement is one of the great ironies of business and one of the greatest failures of managerialism.
