HMV buys the Fopp name and some stores

HMV have bought six stores, the Fopp trading name and the fopp.co.uk (Nice RIP notice still in place) website. News reports here, here, here and here.

It is both an odd move and a wise one. It seems a shame somehow that this is how it ends though.

Andrew Keen’s Cult of the Amateur finally arrived making me very happy but I’ll probably be angry after I read it.
