Amazon's Consumer Electronics Distribution Questioned
from the oops dept
Wired is running an article about Amazon's entry into the consumer electronics space and they question if it's the right move for Amazon. More interesting to me, however, was the bit about the questionable way in which they are sourcing their products. Sony, for example, does not have Amazon as a certified reseller, and therefore they are apparently getting the goods in a questionable manner. I especially like the quote from Outpost.com's CEO saying he's heard "rumors" of Amazon's products having the serial numbers stripped off.
