>...Why are electronic components so damned hard to buy?

Electronic components often go on allocation in the run up to Christmas to ensure production for large manufacturers like Sony, Toshiba, Nintendo, etc.

I've had this problem at work. Couldn't get hold of a particular (very common) ferrite transformer core set anywhere from October onwards. Presumably it's used in a laptop or phone charger or similar high volume consumer product.

Things should return to normal in the new year and there'll hopefully be some stock for us smaller buyers!
