The last week I have tried to find a silicone sleeve for my 13" laptop and a DVR enclosure case. All the office supply stores, Best Buy and Circuit City did not have these things. I didn't really expect them to, besides I just have to make a trip out to Fry's. Fry's will have it (confident, affirming head nod). Yeah...um, remember the magical times of the late 90's? When any tech you could imagine you could find at Fry's and beyond. Yes, the days when every nerd and geek swore angels sang everytime they walked in the doors. Party's over - Fry's Failed.
They had neither the Si cover nor the DVR enclosure. They did have a sleeve of the right size, but only one and it was poor. I was truly stunned. Fry's had to have it. I was just looking in the wrong place. So I walked up and down the aisle and halls. I even checked all the end displays. Nothing. Nada. Do not pass checkout. Do not spend $200. Disappointed, defeated and worst of all disillusioned I returned to my car.....purchasless. So now I search the web for what I need. Sigh. I am one step closer to becoming a shopping shut-in; leaving the house only for work and pick-up food orders.
