Will Geeknet (NASDAQ:GKNT)s iCade be an iBlockbuster?
Connect the dots...iCade was unofficially announced at CES January 7th (1.) and broken by this blog but [to this day never formally/fully disclosed by GKNT] .
April 8th Atari tweets it released their 100 Greatest Hits:

Also on April 8th, Slashdot (owned by Geeknet) posted that "Gaming is the Most Popular Use For Tablets" (see iCade).

All indications are that iCade will be a blockbuster but only time can confirm that. Thinkgeek estimates June 2 (Q2) launch...
But something is still missing at Geeknet...ThinkGeek's prodigious accomplishments, in addition to ThinkGeek's April Fools 2011 which was unprecedented...brilliant but betray products which should exist...why hasn't Geeknet released a kickass (as in without peer) iPhone and Android app nor why haven't both Geeknet's and ThinkGeek's website's maintain/demand a more timely (superior perceived value) look, feel, next-generation integrated ecommerce site/distribution/scanning/shipping [and] ThinkGeek emerging as the Zynga of eCommerce for Facebook to bring parity with said certain [recent] accomplishments?!
1. iCade buzz still going strong 3 months later through today.
