This isn’t new, but I just discovered that Fry’s Electronics acquired Outpost.com late last year and is running the Outpost.com web site. Fry’s is famous for low prices, huge inventory, and exquisitely horrible customer support. It should be interesting to compare prices there.
Fry’s apparently had made a play for Egghead.com, but bailed out after it acquired Outpost.com. Egghead wound up becoming part of the Amazon family, presumably just to keep the brand name alive – by the time that deal was done last year, Egghead had nothing left except its brand name. Here’s the Egghead “Powered by Amazon” web site.
