GeeknetThinkGeek (GKNTD GKNT),  /(bb | [^b]{2}) ? That is the question.


Something is simply missing at Geeknet/ThinkGeek...Angry Birds would have been a prescient strategic alliance for Thinkgeek but that opportunity was lost to Toywiz ...and why isn't TK-421 not carried by the obvious majors e.g. Best Buy, Verizon, AT&T, et al...and Kids Rock Shirts not in Costco, Walmart, Best Buy...? Groupon turns down $6 Billion offer from Google...while Geeknet gave away Linux.com and dumped ohloh.net as an asset sale (3.)


But the most telling and tragic miss as in irreversible and priceless lost opportunity costs/shareholder value was when ThinkGeek blew it by 1.  not making this (free) video the winner of their Electronic Guitar T-shirt Contest held last April, and  2.  that this video has not gone viral into the millions of views...one of the best marketing opportunities/potential coups in marketing/advertising history...something that comes along once in a lifetime if one is lucky...staring ThinkGeek in the face...handed to them on a silver platter yet ThinkGeek completely, negligently, and incomprehensively...blew it(.) and exacerbating this travesty further ThinkGeek has not even associated the video ThinkGeek misguidedly proclaimed as the winner with the kids rock t-shirt line ?!@##! One more time...Electronic Guitar Shirt (Step Back)... PURE GENIUS (*, 1, 2) ...and Geeknet did nothing with it.

 

Geeknet, ThinkGeek: /(bb | [^b]{2})/ that is the quetsion...thus conscience doth make cowards of us all, and thus the native hue of resolution is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought...Who is Geeknet's Mark Zuckerberg?
