Best Buy Closing UK Megestores

Best Buy will close its 11 megastores in the UK, the company announced today. The company's eastward expansion plans from three years ago failed to materialize, which would have seen Best Buy open 100 stores across the island nation before invading mainland Europe. This follows Best Buy's retreat earlier this year from opening branded stores in China and Turkey.

I saw that.

Apparently, 200 stores were planned, but only 11 were opened.

Shame about the people losing their jobs, but if customers weren't coming through the door, that's it I'm afraid.

Yes, retail stores are hard to run with lower cost online options available.

help! IE has a 10-second delay when closing
I have Windows 7, been using it a couple months. Suddenly, beginning yesterday, when I click the X to close my IE browser, there's about a 10-second delay before it disappears. Every time. It's really annoying, especially since it's a new problem. I'm not saying it's a W7 problem, but...
