    NewsFlash - From the ashes to a tiger

    Just got off the phone from talking to my contact at TigerDirect. I was told that TigerDirect has purchased CompUSA. They are going to re-open some of the stores that have a history of being profitable. Tiger will bring cheaper prices to CompUSA.

    Merchandise in the closed stores will be sold through TigerDirect.

    ... So that pile of bricks at Columbus Circle will actually be affordable?

    Last night, I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know.
    love, piaqt

    I bet the bargain-bins of software/hardware are going to get swamped on
