    I agree with all these points but I would add that there are distributors in let's say the Sporting Goods market that will sell their "house branded" hockey pucks and the name brands at the same time.

    Sorry if this has already been discussed but I think Apple dropped the headphone jack so they could control credit card processing. Can't plug in a Square type device without the port. Maybe there are wireless options out there?

    I like this quote Those Slurpees came in at an astounding .18 cent cost factor, selling for a 1.99 per cup -- that's what made the store money.
