Crouching Tiger Direct, Hidden CompUSA

Last time I went to the liquidating CompUSA store down the street, the guy with the CompUSA T-shirt on told me that basically, Tiger Direct was using the CompUSA name. I know that Tiger Direct sells Systemax computers, but I don't know whether one had bought the other or not. (Looking at the Systemax web site, they list TIger Direct, Global Computer Supplies, InfotelUSA, and now CompUSA, among others, as subsidiaries and divisions.

I just took a look at both Tiger Direct's and CompUSA's web sites for SATA II hard drives. Found one brand/model on both sites. The user reviews were identical.... so there you go. I may well have been sent the DVD burner and such from the very same warehouse as the Ultra Black Micro Fly.
