What the...

What's next, Best Buy picks up HH Gregg and Circuit City? Let's not have any variety of stores anywhere.

That's very surprising.

I would have thought it would have been the other way around.

I agree.

This kind of thing never seems to be very good for the consumer.

Just look at radio stations. Clearchannel owns something like 6-7 in the Cleveland area out of a total of maybe 9 or 10. It's ridiculous.

Reminds me of Henry Ford's answer to the question someone asked what color the Model T's come in. "You can have it in any color as long as it's black"

Nah... AOL/Time Warner will just buy all of those stores at once.

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Yep.

And most of those stations have the same playlist. Which is only about a 18-20 song rotation.

Sickening. You used to be able to listen to the radio without hearing the same songs every other hour.
