Re: Crocs craters

I followed this bubble firsthand. My wife bought a pair of Crocs for me and a couple for herself - around the time of the IPO. I knew then and there they had peaked. We weren't going to buy anymore - the cheap plastic is indestructible. [more]

Re: Is Snapchat taking on PAYPAL? ...
