Forgot that the Best Buy near me also sells guitars. I couple of Les Pauls, Stratocasters, and Telecasters, amplifiers and speakers the size of cabanas might suit me just fine. Also forgot the camera and gift cards for stocking stuffers. This could be fun.

A fully loaded MacBook Pro, Mac Pro, 4 30" cinema displays, 4 Apple TV's, 4 Mac Minis and a 4 more apple LCD displays. Gotta have one in each room of the house :) Oh yeah.. a dozen TB of hard drive space/storage to run everything along with a couple of Gigabit ethernet switches/routers to network it all up. Then to the photo/video dept. Load up on the higest end DSLR they sell with lenses and the most expensive HD video cam. Accompanying this in the cart would be high speed SDHC memory cards. In the 2 remaining minutes I had left, I'd toss a couple of huge LCD televisions and home theater setups in for good measure. The kids playroom is still not HD yet! :)

I'll pack all the apple inventory as mentioned before but I will place it inside a couple of pianos and then roll them out.

No Ipad for me yet. I'd probably get a netbook, and a new flat screen to replace my CRT at home. The Fry's near me has a grand piano, so I would tow that behind my shopping cart. A digital slide projector? Yes. I would also grab a few drives, a laser printer, and a top of the line scanner.

I love Fry's in Tempe! Granted, it's probably not the best place to buy capacitors & PCB etch chemicals -- but really, what other brick & mortar stores carry electronic components anymore? I go to Digikey or Mouser online when I need that stuff. But Fry's is great for building a new PC, or adding new life to an old one -- more DRAM, bigger hard drive, newer graphics card, etc. Can't say I've had any run-ins with surly clerks, but they seem to have a lot of employee turnover. Go back in a month and that guy will probably be gone.

I just realized, may be Brian has forgot to mention that the cash registers will be locked, only the electronic items will be free to take :)

The vast majority of the embedded designers I know typically create MCU-based systems -- they rarely even consider using a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA).

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
