I went there last week to get a 3.5mm cable extension, so I asked to employee if he knew where they were. He asks me what it was and told him a cable with a headphone jack on both end. He tells me there are none and walks away. I turn me head to the left and find them for the ridiculous price of $15 for 3 feet.

I was in there the other day to buy a Snow Leopard disk for my *cough*Mac*cough* and decided to ask how much a "2x 2GB kit of DDR2" would cost just for giggles, and it takes the Tard Squad employee about 15 minutes to figure out what I was asking him and if they even had any. They didn't even have a single 4GB kit or even single 2GB sticks of DDR2. What kind of electronics store is that?

15 dollars! hot damn! I think the craziest thing I saw was a 5750 last time I was there for around 220, oh ho but it didn't end there. For a paltry 20 bucks more you get Geek squads 2 year replacement hooplah

I could have told you that worked there from 03 to 05. Look at the markup on TV's and appliances sometime.

That's the AudioQuest brand cables, isn't it?

And this isn't "MONSTER QUALITY" or anything.. This is a chinese HDMI cable with no extra features or even excuses as to why the price is jacked up.
Are you trying to say that there's any excuse for a HDMI cable (monster or not) to be anywhere near $30? :barf:
