SFSailor: (Weren't they the ones that did porn and condoms in addition to ice cream and skittles, or was that another short-lived SF-only bubble toy company?)


I don't know if Kozmo.com sold porn or not. But they were famous for the "one bag of Skittles, no markup, no questions asked" policy, which is of course what did them in. Delivering individual porn DVDs would probably have been a viable business model, at least until your delivery employees started getting raped and murdered. (And, well, broadband. But the raping and murdering would have shut you down first.)

I can't wait for Kozmo.com to come back. I want a single bag of Skittles delivered to my door, for supermarket retail prices, in the middle of the night, with no delivery charge and a no-tipping policy! Because it's the glorious internet future!

Hmm, if the good old days are coming back, better break out my old .sig file.

planes: [www.global-air.com image 150x195]

As cute--or possibly annoying--as the sock puppet was, Pets.com was never able to give pet owners a compelling reason to buy supplies online.


Sure they were, but with some of these businesses, that was precisely the problem.

Suit 1: "Let's sell fifty-pound bags of dog food over the Internet and offer free shipping!"
Suit 2: "It'll really drives the eyeball count up! We'll have mindshare! Conversion rate of ad banner clickers into paying customers will go through the roof!"
Intern: "But doesn't that mean we lose money on every sale?"
Suits (in unison): "We'll make it up in volume!" 

And 20 years later, there was Groupon.

Joe Peanut: Freshdirect never went away. I actually hate them. I live in a neighborhood with lots of great food markets. But for some reason some of my lazy neighbors rather use Freshdirect. My apartment is on the first floor, facing the street, and there is a fire hydrant right outside my window. So when the FD truck comes to the neighborhood, they park at the fire hydrant right in front of my window, and go do their deliveries around the area. Since the truck is refrigerated, they have to keep the engine and big AC system running, sometimes for a few hours on end, right outside my window. One of these days they will come back to find something pierced their radiator while they were away.......


Sticking your penis in a radiator is never as pleasurable as you would think.

/or so I've been told....
