Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

This has nothing to do with pay and everything to do with idiocy.

The only way I can interpret that comment is to guess that you have in mind what redstar noted above, namely that Best Buy "restructures" too, so that both chains are equally brutal with their workforces.

But I do agree with you that Circuit City stores usually come across as seedy, and that that might have something to do with their present difficulties. Nevertheless, I have found on two occasions Circuit City to have specific products not available at other local stores, so that I ended up buying from them.

And I don't think the use of profanity is justified just because a retailer doesn't carry "Mac stuff". That kind of attitude might have made sense in 1984 (my first computer was a Mac Plus), but it doesn't today. Today, the rational platform to use is Linux, and any big box store will carry plenty of hardware for that.
