Why is Target Selling a Toy That Won't Work After January 1 2009?
I don’t own and don’t plan to buy this toy, so I have no personal axe to grind. I’m just asking: why is Target selling — even at a steep discount — the Net Jet Online arcade system from Hasbro when apparently the online servers for Net Jet Online will be shut down on January 1, 2009? There appears to be something to the rumors: even the typical buy now button has been switched off for Net Jet Online on Hasbro’s own website. So again I ask: why is Target selling these seemingly soon to be defunct systems? What’s the ethical standard behind that?
