Roundtable:: More Than Distribution
Swanke: Pads, pods and e-readers are hot and we have started selling them now.
Alifano: 3D TV may have positive impact in the future, but for now it has generated nowhere near the projected amount of units the industry had hoped. The technology just did not provide enough of a reason for the consumer to replace a display when so many of them had just upgraded to a flat screen. As a distributor, we hedged our bets and did not take a large inventory position in this area.
Dealerscope: Are your dealers asking for any specific support or services from you that they are not being offered by vendors or buying groups?
