What do you call a national chain of small electronics stores that once catered to the hobbyist set and a generation of tinkerers that is now best known for selling cell phones? One more hint: this company has virtually no moat!

Radio Shack, Radio Shack. How far you have fallen. Time was it was a respectable place where you could buy diodes, pick up programming on a TRS-80, and buy first-generation rechargeable batteries. You're but a shadow of your former self. Really, bud--take a look in the mirror! It's time to freshen up and greet the day!

I can't imagine how Radio Shack could be relevant to anyone. Its one advantage is the small store footprint, but how many cell phones in a near-saturated NA market do you have to sell before you're profitable? Honestly, selling cell phones out of those carts in the mall might be more lucrative.

Radio Shack, I'll be seein' ya, in all the old familiar bankruptcy courts...
