I would just like to point out that Jenny gave me the best travel coffee mug I've ever had. It's made by Nissan Stainless. I poured hot coffee into it at 6:20 this morning, and at 9:40 it's still pleasantly warm. It doesn't leak, it's easy to clean, and it's nice and roomy. Highly recommended. :)

Ah, irony -- my favorite form of humor (scroll down to the two paragraphs about Josh Peyton. The ironic bit should be obvious if you have a decent grasp of grammar).
In other incredibly bone-headed moves: Best Buy has comparison shopper arrested. Yeah, okay. I mean, there's two courses of action here:
- Throw out comparison shoppers. In this case, you have zero chance of selling to the shopper, since they're not even in your store any more.
- Don't throw out comparison shoppers. In this case, there's a chance the shopper will discover a lower price elsewhere, and a chance they will not. Which means there's a chance you'll sell to the shopper.
Call me crazy, but if I'm a retailer I'd at least like a chance to sell to the shopper.
Credit to Jenny for alerting me to this particular ridiculousness.
