Ugh, why can’t we have a fucking REAL electronics store in the Mission? Is that so much to ask?

Best Buy?

No, a REAL electronics store.

curious, what qualifies as “REAL” electronics store?

Other than Best Buy (which is horrid, yes) how could a brick & mortar electronics store possibly survive nowadays? what with Amazon, et al. Even Best Buy is having trouble staying afloat.

This store takes a different approach, stocking boutique items not readily available elsewhere, which have a high liklihood of appealing to mission residents. Seems like a smart move to me.

Nice try, DijitalFix proprietor.

… Radio Shack.

I went in there before Christmas, and it seemed to be about half-filled with device cases, with a few novelty speakers thrown in for quirk value. As I looked around, two things I was not concerned with were the staff’s favorite albums or “inspirations in the field of technology.”* What I wanted was the management/ownership to work harder to find cool things to fill the space with.

* A. WTF does that even mean? B. Whoever invented indoor plumbing.

A help-wanted ad requiring that you submit a photo is not a good sign.

It might be illegal.

I guess they are going for hipster irony by calling a company that seems to focus on analog gear - DigitalFix??

1. My favorite record is Rickey Henderson’s 130 stolen bases for the 1982 Athletics. Nobody has come even close since.
2. Biggest inspiration in the field of technology is the money I make in the field of technology. That paycheck gets me out of bed everyday.
3. Biggest inspiration in the field of photography is Ginger Blaze. I could stare at photos of her all day and night long.

Do you have to shower daily?

Yes, but the shower can be golden.

‘Steel Reserve 211’ golden? Or ‘Steel Reserve 211’ golden after it circulates through my urinary system? I know, they both look/smell/taste the same, but i’m still curious.
