    Eggs, milk, cat litter and some Sonus Faber Liliums to go. What else would you shop at Walmart before x-mas?

    Re: Walmart?

    Anyone remember the Moto RAZR? Selling those at Wal-Mart for $99,- after selling them for $500+ two years earlier in the operator channel is what started Moto descent into oblivion.

    Where's Moto today? Yeah right, sold to Google for patents and then ejected shortly thereafter.

    Flip phones, so sad .

    Point is rather about channel strategy, once you go mass market the brand is ruined.

    A brand isn't necessarily ruined by going mass market, it is finished when a product within the brand becomes a commodity.

    the question is which happens first and which one is the result of the other.

    Re: Walmart?

    It would be interesting to see if Buyoo is an authorized SF dealer, and if SF is aware they appeared at Wal-Mart? It's a bit ridiculous as WM has nothing that could drive a SF properly.

    It's also interesting we see quality electronic's prices continue to climb, yet they feel the way to increase business is to sell direct or go to online retailers. Time will tell how things go for McIntosh.
