RIP - Fry's Electronics 

It's kind of a sad day in the tech world.

I used to go to the Fry's near Portland, Oregon when I was getting more into computers while an undergrad in college. I loved seeing so many gadgets, electronics and the people who knew a lot about it. Plus, the prices were pretty competitive. Need a weird adapter for a USB mic? Go to Fry's! 

I guess COVID and the internet have won yet another battle in the brick and mortar war. This timing isn't just about COVID, it is also about the trends of online availability for better or worse. 

Anyway, thanks for the memories Fry's, and may your workers find solace soon.
