It’s official: RIP Fatbrain.com, as the Barnes & Noble.com division of B&N redirects Fatbrain.com visitors to the new (?) Barnes & Noble.com Professional, Technical and Business Bookstore. One of my other favorites was Egghead.com. Last year though, Egghead was apparently aquired by Amazon.com.
In a way, I always thought that a merger between Fatbrain.com and Egghead.com would’ve provided a combined branding and revenue stream for an interesting and potentially strong partnership. Such a partnership could’ve offered just about all the technical software and content a software geek could want, sort of like an Amazon for geeks.
Oh well, I guess we’ll never really know, now. Again, RIP Fatbrain.com.
Do you think B&N will continue where Fatbrain left off, when it was acquired by B&N? Please share your thoughts.
