I remember the first time I shopped in a Fry’s Electronics store. I felt like a two year old in a candy store!
I was never a nerd, but I loved the cables and components that you can buy there. More than once I had a young man explain to me how a computer was built and what a motherboard is. Which did nothing for me, but just seeing these components is intriguing. If this sounds sexy to you, you might consider a visit at WeirdStuff in Sunnyvale. WeirdStuff feels more like a garage meets maker faire. You are surrounded by electronic equipment, both old and new. I actually found myself on memory lane browsing the aisles – VHS tapes, keyboards and cables. Do you remember the Cherry keyboard?
But Weird Stuff also takes your old computers and parts. Which I see as a great service to our fast growing electro trashing society.
This is one of the best stops on your tech tour in Silicon Valley!
Do you have a thing for computer parts?
