    Oooh, they beat me to it. I've thought of getting something like its business model here - 'cos people sure could use random presents for 'building up rapport', or just for the heck of it.

    hahaha.

    I ordered random t-shirts (2 of them) from http://shirt.woot.com and I'll report what I got. I'll not be falling for this one... no way.

    Question: Does this business model lean towards gambling?

    Pretty much. Consumerism with a twist of surprise... it's just not for McDonald's any more I guess.

    Interesting. If so, how does this business model lean towards gambling?

    it's an awesome fad for such an over saturated product market. I wonder how long it will last...i'm honestly surprised that there have been 1000 woot/something store knock offs...Even woot knocked off their own site with wine, shirts and yahoo...where's everyone else?

    Sort of reminds me of this movie The Game, where one pays for surprises.

    I note you relate woot with somethingstore, which I feel have different selling points - but for the record I get your point.

    was thinking about this and decided to order something today. summer is over and fall is here.... Life has become boring and i'm thinking random items will spice it up till the snow falls and i can start doing some winter sports.

    Why not hit the casino? That's random too.
