    I went in Jaycar today and noticed they didn't have any Silicon Chip
    magazines. I just went to the Jaycar website and they list it as out of
    stock. Do Jaycar no longer stock SC?

    The November 2006 issue? Pehaps the bundled DSE catalog has something
    to do with it.

    The November 2006 issue? Pehaps the bundled DSE catalog has something
    That would explain it.

    Yes, fairly petty if so, considering DSE isn't any cheaper for similar
    items, so is hardly going to steal business from Jaycar anyway.

    sorry, but lol.
    Only a fool advertises their competitor.

    And what do you call someone who thinks that is advertising their
    competitor?

  7. In that case they should have removed the DSE catalog and slipped their
    own in there.
    Would have been a great stunt if nothing else.

    On the flip side, at least Jaycar still know what they are selling. DSE
    wouldn't even notice.

  8. Last time I went into my local DSE (fully owned store, not a stockist),
    they had maybe half a dozen IC's in stock, and only 1's and 2's of
    those. They didn't even have 555's. I noticed half the resistors and
    caps were gone too. They used to have 3 stands of components, now it is
    only 2, and many of the drawers of those 2 are empty. So it would appear
    they are clearing out of components so they can focus on gadgets. I'm
    sure Dick would be ashamed of what it has become since he sold out to
    Woolworths.
    I went into DSE on a recent monday morning, and was the only customer in
    there (when they had components, they were always fairly busy) - after
    browsing their piddly range I left in disgust without buying anything. A
    quick look at jaycar's website revealed that there is now a local
    stockist, so I went in there. It is an out-of-the-way shop tucked into a
    minor shopping centre, yet there were half a dozen people in there
    buying components when I went in. Seems to me that DSE are in their
    death throws, while Jaycar are going from strength to strength.
     
  9. Correct for hobby electronics, except that you are about 10-15 years
    too late with that analysis!

    I doubt very much if Dick Smith himself cares about anything other than
    making money and telling us what a great Australian he is - after ripping us
    off for years, stuffing up the aviation industy etc etc. Ask anybody
    involved in Air Traffic Control what they think of him!
    I heard a runour that Tandy (also owned by Woolies) is taking on the
    'electronic' side of things, while Trickie Dickies is doing the gadgets etc
    like Tandy have done in recent years.
