    Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think this ad abuses the apostrophe. The computer actually does belong to Radio Shack, so there should be a possessive apostrophe. Right? Just sayin’.

    Funny, I didn’t even notice “Radio Shack’s”, my eye was immediately drawn to the ugly one. I think they should get a bonus demerit for capitalising “Very Best” as well.

    So it seems that Capitalizing Every Word To Make It Look More Important is nothing new.

    Good grief…
