Forecast: waves of clouds building into a storm, so continue to stay inside. A day later, we saw the first way that threat will materialize: GoPro announced that they are mostly discontinuing sales through retail distribution, and will instead sell primarily Direct to Consumer in the future.
A select few retailers will still be able to sell the camera, but GoPro expects most of their future sales to be direct. I think I first mentioned this business model back when Ricoh bought Pentax. In the Amazon-dominated world, the customer preference for local versus online had shifted enough to make this possible.
