    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The company, back in 1997, decided they needed to start experimenting with the Internet, not knowing how successful it would be, or frankly, even knowing what it would take to start a successful Internet business, ...

We're taking advantage of customer service and created an independent organization that we think is allowing us to build on some of the unique things Best Buy does.”

How do you select a product off the shelf? The same thought has to work for consumers on the Internet. They can click one button and be gone.”
