What is a crossover cable? What does it do?

Re: Is RadioShack that confused?

I can think of an amendment to your question: Since the global citizenry are turning more to "green", should the trend which has lead to the invention of the disposable society be allowed to continue on unabated, or will it eventually slow or stall? Is all progress good? Well, that is a shift in th...

Re: Is RadioShack that confused?

Within this thread, though, I do expect salespeople to have a firm grasp of their stock, at least in their section, so as to be able to assist customers effectively. The salesperson is the first link in customer service. I'm really the wrong person to ask. Radio Shack lost me as a customer years ag...

Re: Is RadioShack that confused?

With technology comes the responsibility of knowing something about that technology other than how to turn it on and off. User manuals are included for a reason. I'm not saying that one needs to know the most minute detail about everything they lay their hands on, but knowing the basic rules of own...

Re: Is RadioShack that confused?

It's the same with people who drive their automobiles with faulty brake lights and the little "Check Engine" light glowing on their dash. As long as the car starts, off they go, happy to be yet another End User. That would be me. My 1997 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer has a brake warning light that come...

Re: Is RadioShack that confused?

WOW- I am impressed at all that great detective work. For someone bashing MrAl and his time wasting efforts, you sure do seem to have a lot of time on your hands! I'm not bashing MRAL . Why would you think that? He is a perfect example of why you don't want to upgrade the staff at a Radio Shack. In...

Yes I do. (On Fridays, that is. I have the day off, but also do all our laundry).

Re: Is RadioShack that confused?

Yawn indeed. This used to be a technical forum. You have posted on a wide variety of topics recently. None were started by you. Help me understand if you consider them appropriate for a technical forum or not? 1 Re: Is RadioShack that confused? Posted: Fri Apr 03, 2009 4:07 pm 2 Re: Perimeter Intru...

Re: Three compfusers on the same internet provider ?

A friend that knows less than me needs to have 3 WinVista PC's sharing an internet service, which is wireless, enters the premises over the air; (no landlines involved) and been told by the provider AT&T, the signal/service comes from a cell tower to a single USB stick with antenna plugged to only ...

Re: Is RadioShack that confused?

Radio Shack is definitely a different beast than what it used to be. I guess that's the price we pay for living in a disposable society. Technically ignorant society. Products are disposable for three reasons: (1) Unwillingness for consumers to buy 'quality' - lowest selling price is a major buying...

And the reason that the independent store closed, but the OandO didn't?
