"To my shock, not only were the fruit colored iPods not rotting on the shelf, but the stores were jam packed. At Best Buy, consumers were picking up game consoles (Xbox and PS3), DVDs, HDTVs, etc. I still have yet to find a store with any inventory of Nintendo Wii. The booths to fill out an application for a Best Buy credit card were full! The interest-free credit on HDTVs and other goods combined with decreasing prices has clearly motivated buyers. Even Circuit City. . . was busy."
