Want to thank the fine folks @nfmtweets for hosting us yesterday and taking us on a walk-thru the electronics store in Omaha. Nebraska Furniture is one of the underappreciated and hidden gems in CE retail.
This was a great discussion. TV will see revenue growth in 2018, despite consistent predictions of its demise. Like so much of tech the TV sales mix is getting richer. 55" and above TVs revenue in 2018 expected to grow 10% vs less than 2% overall. Bigger is better!!! 
Drones remain a very bifurcated business for consumers. Lots of committed hobbyists who spend a lot (and are great early adopter tech customers) vs a much larger mainstream consumer who seems them as toys or irrelevant to them. To keep growing that needs to change. 
This is beyond sad😓😓. When we were starting Staples in 1986 TRU was one of the category killers we really looked up to.
