Gateway finalizes eMachines purchase
The cow has swallowed the cud. I repeat. The cow has swallowed the cud.
Now analysts are wondering about the fate of the Gateway Country Stores.

But then don't we all have a local computer shop like that already?
In other news, PA is taking on the Apple retail stores as an Abercrombie & Jobs kind of outfit. Here in Kansas City, we're not even cool enough to have an Apple store in the area.
