Best Buy nukes tablet partners, resumes HP TouchPad sales

Best Buy nukes tablet partners, resumes HP TouchPad sales

So much for my heaping praise on Best Buy. The retailer has decided to unload its unsold stock of TouchPads after all. It’s an atomic blast that will have grave consequences for Best Buy and, more importantly, its other tablet partners. Apple might just laugh all the way to the bank.

Perhaps not nothing, but Apple would be much less than it is today. Apple Store allows the company to take product risks competitors won’t or can’t. Meanwhile, Windows PC users feel more comfortable taking the risk to buy Macs and iOS devices.

Move over iPad, Kindle is coming to an AT&T store near you

Move over iPad, Kindle is coming to an AT&T store near you

By Joe Wilcox, Betanews

Today, AT&T announced that, starting March 6, it will carry Amazon’s Kindle reader in its retail stores nationwide. Timing is interesting, given iPad 2’s imminent launch and Apple App Store subscription changes that could compel Amazon to curtail or even stop distribution of Kindle software for iOS devices. Buyers considering iPad in AT&T stores will now have option of the lower-cost and ebook reading-dedicated Kindle.

Is Microsoft Store just a cheap Apple Store rip-off?

Is Microsoft Store just a cheap Apple Store rip-off?

By Joe Wilcox, Betanews

Tech bloggers, particularly those in the Mac camp, have repeatedly slammed Microsoft for imitating Apple and doing so badly. But as the saying goes, imitation is the best form of flattery — and imitation is quite common in retail.
