Notice to all Buzzboard readers & posters: A requested server migration took place Saturday evening. Unfortunately, I did not re-point my DNS records to the new server until roughly 7:45p ET on Monday, November 12. As a result, any posts and new user registrations occurring between the nighttime hours of 11/10 and approximately 7:45p ET on Monday, 11/12 have been lost.

This was unavoidable, and the longer I waited to re-point to the new server, the greater the number of posts that would've been lost.

Please feel free to resubmit any threads / posts you created. They will NOT be lost this time! Many thanks for your patience these past couple of weeks while I've worked to migrate the Buzzboard to a more secure, more robust platform.

Radio Shack name bought

Post by Marcus » Wed May 13, 2015 1:30 pm

Standard General LP has just bought the name for $26.2 million at a recent bankruptcy auction. Standard General is a New York investment firm at standardgenerallp.com

This was an intellectual property sale which includes both the Radio Shack name and its customer information.

I wonder what value there would be in the name of a failed Company.

It should read: Your customer data sold (along with Radio Shack's name)

The domain name alone is valuable to a company like monoprice.

My earlier comments about Sprint were displaced - they are simply renting space in the Radio Shack locations. Separate employees and everything.


Ask not what your country can do FOR you; ask what they are about to do TO YOU!!

All those times when i bought batteries and gave them my contact info....


You'd have thought that Carlos Slim would have bought it and merged it into his other business interests.

Does this business move that the www.radioshack.com website will live on?
