As the holiday shopping season fast approaches, retailer Best Buy is planning to shrug off concerns that many internet users are simply using their stores as a showroom for products purchased online by price matching.
It's gotta hurt being the only major U.S. carrier without the iPhone, and the proof of this dilemma is certainly being shown in T-Mobile USA's second-quarter, during which time more than half a million subscribers jumped ship for greener pastures.
