The zero-moment point came Monday, and in the crassest, cruelest, more heartless way possible.
Barnes & Noble has slit its own wrists. Now we just wait to bleed out.
Barnes & Noble needs to double down on becoming more than just a bookstore. They've already diversified their inventory by selling dvds, toys, and even their own electronics. Many also have cafes now. I think all this has helped kept them afloat thus far in the face of the behemoth that is Amazon. But are executives at Barnes & Nobles just delaying the inevitable, or are they actually committed to diversifying and competing?
