They left out the fact that pretty much everyone, even on Fark, agrees that Best Buy is a sucky store to shop in, deal with the employees of, or find a decent price in.

But but but the Geek squad.
If anything, they can take care of your granny's computer so you don't have to bother, right?

That's a whole lot of paragraphosity from someone who apparently has no idea how long Newegg, Amazon, etc  have been around, taking huge chunks out of all retail shops..

/'de-bestbuyification' isn't nearly as bad as 'phablet', which might be the most retarded phrase since 'tweet'

The amazing thing about Best Buy is how their enormous stores can have so few things I want to buy. The local stores have 1/10th the size and actually carry better selections of computer stuff and somehow have prices that are actually competitive.

How Best Buy is still in business is beyond me. It's the new Radio Shack.

You might want to pick up a decromulabulatrix in order to prevent that from happening again.

Of course, if you just want to make a repair, you could use a reencromulator.

many times i've posted on FARK of my excellent experiences buying in person at BestBuy stores. and it's a rare day i ever set foot in a store that doesn't sell groceries; nearly all my purchases are made online. the many folks who splooge all over themselves at the thought of empty malls and brick & mortars across America forget a few simple things. there are people like my wife who actually like to go shopping and see items in person (she works a lot, rarely gets to shop, so for her its fun). second and most important, people are still social creatures. while the geeks who love to buy technology gladly stay in Mom's basement and are on first name terms with all the couriers in the neighborhood there is still a farkload of people who enjoy the store shopping / mall experience. i think people watching, trendy overpriced items, food courts and maintaining credit card debt is the allure for those folks and they will keep hitting stores and malls for the rest of their lives. and it's kind of a shame because malls could be turned into housing for so many people.

So, your wife works a lot and rarely gets to shop, but the brick and mortar store are supposed to stay in business because she thinks it's fun?

The problem mall stores have isn't that people don't go, it's that people go, pick out what they like, try it on, and then go home and order it online for a third of the price.

I don't think malls or brick and mortar stores are going away completely, but they are losing their primacy, just like big downtown department stores lost theirs when malls came along.
And one day online retailers will lose out as well.

Two words I cannot stand.

-In college, my Shakespeare professor constantly used the word "happenstance". She was an idiot.
-When I listen to SiriusXM's Coffee House channel, one commercial mentions the "accoustification" of today'shiats. It makes me feel so dumb that I usually change to Blue Collar Comedy when I hear it.

Those two words are banned from my lexicon.
