Why doesn’t a consumer electronics store work this way, in the age of the Internet? You walk into the digital photography section. On a slanted shelf sit 15 different cameras, each tied to its stanchion for security. But there’s a big screen behind the row of compact devices. And a keyboard in front. You lift up a camera which interests you and the wired system senses it’s the Nikon Coolpix S10. Up on the screen appears pictures of the camera, pictures taken by the camera, some technical specs and links to more. Maybe there’s a gallery of photos taken by the device. Or a video about some of its key features. You put it down and pick up the next one. This time the screen automatically throws up data and images about the Samsung HZ10W. The drill repeats itself, for as many cameras as you pick up. But, along the way, you use the keyboard to access consumer reviews of the cameras and pricing at other stores and online sites. When you’re done, you even … [Read more...] about Brick and Click Stores: How Circuit City Could Re-Open Its Doors
