Executive Brief (excerpt):
→Traditional solutions for liquidating luxury merchandise have been outlet stores, sample sales, trunk shows or warehouse sales. In the past, they have been an effective method of selling overstock.
But—in a global economy that is moving away from an old paradigm and into a new one, both economically and culturally, with a younger, busier affluent consumer, the unstoppable expansion of social networking, and the ubiquitous use of mobile technology worldwide—do conventional methods of selling overstock still make the most sense?
Businesses need to stay current. How consumers are thinking, what they’re doing and buying—these are important questions. The more quickly the climate changes, the more important it becomes to anticipate and adapt to future trends. Utilizing the Internet in some way makes sense, but to do so in a way that doesn’t undermine retail sales is essential.
This paper explores the use of Flash Sales as an alternative way to liquidate luxury items. It explores what Flash Sales are, how they work and which websites are hot. It will also consider the changing landscape and the challenges associated with this opportunity.

Do you know what you’re holding? A revolutionary new way to listen to music. ClickRadio is Web radio, without the Web and without the radio. Leaving only one thing: lots of great music in residence on your hard drive. You hear a song you like? Click on “Thumbs Up,” and ClickRadio makes a mental note. “Thumbs Down,” gets clicked, and ClickRadio’s nixed that sorry song. ClickRadio learns your musical tastes so when it downloads all sorts of new stuff from the Net to update your system, it remembers what you like and gets more of that. That’s what I call brains. And sound quality, my friend, that blows both MP3 and Web radio right out of the water. So, what’s the beautiful part? It’s all free.
