    I try to keep phandroid dedicated to Android-only news and in a roundabout way, the fact that Circuit City is closing 155 stores (see list below) is directly related to my experience with Android. You may remember my Live Blog Failure from the T-Mobile G1 Press Conference in New York City… well, Circuit City played [...]

    There's one closing about 30 minutes from me. I hope they have some good deals. I want a laptop.

    Circuit city has been on its deathbed for years. The fact is their prices on acsessories are down right insulting, i've seen cables and connectors being sold for twice what you would pay at a radio shack (and with them you already expect to be paying more).

    Everytime i've gone into a circuit city I usualy leave in disgust. The stores are usualy barren, they never have good deals, and when I do try and buy something they somehow make it the most painfull experiance possable since they never seem to have anyone working ata register. Its almost like they want people to steal :eek: because last time i bought anything from them I had to FIND someone to pay.
