DigiKey mobile app

Ever need to cross reference something? Or find a part fast? Get it ordered and on the way? No longer satisfied with the meager Radio Shack parts selection? Don’t have time to run to Radio Shack?

DigiKey has a mobile app for you.  Its not that I like Digikey better than any of the other major parts dealers like Mouser, Newark, Allied, etc.  They seem to be the first ones with a searchable mobile app and it seems to work well and it saves time.  One of the things that I do not have very much of these days is time so anything that can move a project or repair along is welcome.

I also don’t have anything against Radio Shack, either, they have simply moved away from the parts business.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. To be your own man is hard business. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
