Heh if walmart really wants to compete with amazon they need to start carrying more types of products as amazon does. But they both need to make their sites a lot more easier to navigate when it comes to pc components to be honest. And walmart needs to start carrying pc components for diy pc building. But thats my 2 copper cents.

Exactly and this is actually what Amazon wants since they are already selling them at a loss ( cost of materials and assembly for the $79 Kindle is $85 ) so having to also add in a subsidy for giving the retailer a profit on selling the device costs them even more - so they would prefer that all sales of the device come directly from them anyway !
That's fine b/c I f'in hate Wal-Wart anyways. I have finally begun to like shopping online, my wife loves the hell out of it, and since Wally is making this move, it just guarantees my wife to get her next Kindle from Amazon instead of her beloved Wal-Wart. Thanks, Wally.
The war is lost, I haven't stepped foot in a big-box store (other than a grocery store) for more than 3 years. Amazon rules, Wally-world drools. I mean go rub elbows with the unwashed masses and deal with the traffic or make a few clicks and my order is at my door in 2 days? Not really much of a decision.
