Tucson Radio Shacks Listed in Closings

Over the past few years, Business Experts have been trying to predict how long Radio Shack was going to stay in the game with retail locations in Malls as well as Free Standing Stores.  Radio Shack has rolled with the punches over changes in technology and continued to adapt however it seems those days of Radio Shack as the GoTo for that last minute electronic are dwindling.

ABC News reported today the first Wave of Closures could begin as early as February 17th 2015. This will usually mean sales on everything from In Store Items to fixtures. Years ago when CompUSA did its closures I purchased a Computer Worktable from the Stores Tech Department, the best $75 I’ve spent.

Tucson Arizona, according to a Document filed on the 5th of this month, will lose 3 stores in the first Tranche – Golf Links, 3927 Grant and Tanque Verde. A Second wave of Tranches will take out The Tucson Mall location along with the Oro Valley store. a Third Tranche should bring the total number of closures to 1784.

How to get the new U2 “Songs of Innocence” album {CONFIRMED!!!}

According to Apple, it was supposed to be too simple:

“Your album is already in your library, waiting for you to download. On your Mac or PC, open iTunes, then select the Albums tab. Select Songs of Innocence. Select a track to listen or click the iCloud icon to download.”

WRONG!!!  (Can you see the frustration in my text?…)

Another website gave information…that did not apply to me. My computers that have iTunes installed are using Windows 7 as the operating system. The instructions on http://radio.com/2014/09/10/how-to-download-delete-the-new-u2-album/ were incorrect for my configuration. In the comments section of that article, Nathan Bowhay (my new hero) is the person who provided the correct instructions that worked for me:

Click iTunes Store in the top right (not library)…
…click the house/home icon to the left of music…
…on the far right there is a QUICK LINKS section…click Purchased…
All your purchases including Songs of Innocence should be there and you can click the cloud on them to download them.

Thank you, Nathan!  Now maybe the throbbing that’s been in my head and neck the past few days will subside.
