Ever get the feeling that woot has this cabal of product buyers who line up various wares for the upcoming wootoffs...
Then, as each item comes up in the queue, the associated buyer who lined up the item anxiously watches as the sales specs start rolling in...
And there they sit, on 475 re furb 3D blu-ray players, watching as they sell at the blistering rate of one every 47 seconds. They quickly do the math on the sales rate...
"Ugh, 6 hours to sell out?"
As they sit at their cubicle, they receive a call from an office extension they recognize. 'Dangit, that's the Marketing Manager'
'Debbie, whats up with these Samsubg Blu-rays?'
'I don't know, Mr. Samuels. They're 3D!. I could've swore these sold at top-10% rates when we had them on in the summer.'
'Yeah, I'm looking at the specs. That was a non-3D Samsung, and it was under the $30 price point.'
'Well, looks like we'll have to minimize this one and kill it at 25 units. Would that keep this one under an hour?'
'I think so.'
'Deb, see me on Monday.'
'But I was supposed to have Monday off. OK, I'll be in.'
