Best Buy Not Best for Podcasting Supplies

Have to say my trip last night to Best Buy ® to purchase Podcasting tools was a major disappointment. The place looked somewhat decimated; my wife says they never restocked after the holidays. I wanted to buy a device that records phone calls (nope, didn’t have); a digital audio recorder (lousy selection) and a microphone (poor choices, but bought one anyway).

BB had lots of DVDs (low margin product if ever there was one), video games (ditto) and blank DVRs by the bushel-load. Did that many people get DVD recorder for the holidays?

Well, looks like I have to make my way to Fry’s to get what I want. Sadly, both Fry’s Electronics in my area are a good distance from here.
