    CEO clueless why NOOK sales suck -- was touting on CNBC what a great product -- he is a dud -- no sense of emergency - says going to evaluate what happened

    Pays Jamie Iaonne 450k yr plus to fumble some more........

    Doesn't complete Walmart until days before Christmas.......

    Hyped advertising campaign that was "Hardly Visible Overall".........

    NOOK in-store merchandising looked like an "Easter Egg Hunt" where visits were made.........

    Barnes And Noble Web Site Is A Cluster FV

    • (IAONNE)

      You were warned at BKS he needed to go but kept him........... So make him part of a package deal now and spin away NOOK or get rid of him. You can't mix the position of someone in charge of wholsale loss leaders with a merchandising loser being in charge of it as a sensative high volume retail merchandise item and retail web operations. The retail and wholsale don't mesh nor cross over without this mess. There is no other person to blame except Iaonne. As well as Lynch and Riggio for his hiring, job outline, pay and continued employment. Growth has slowed and the rest regarding the NOOK and the web is sloppy, sloppy, sloppy.

      (BKS) CANNOT FUNCTION AS A MANUFACTURED PRODUCT WHOLSALE INTERNATIONAL DISTRIBUTOR AND PUT THAT DIVISION IN CHARGE OF EVEN ONE SQUARE FOOT OR A BYTE OF A RETAIL OPERATION OR IT"S MERCHANDISING.......

      IF MERCHANDISING DOESN'T KNOW THAT, IF OPERATIONS DOESN'T KNOW THAT, IF DIVISION OR STORE LEVEL SUPERVISORS CAN'T SEE THAT........ THEY ARE CLUELESS!
