CTIA: The jaw drop

Posted by Tricia Duryee at 11:41 AM

ORLANDO. Fla. -- One of the things I've enjoyed doing most the past couple of days is telling people -- mostly from Seattle -- that local company Speakeasy is being acquired by mega-retailer Best Buy.

The news provokes great reactions: Faces contorted, they say, "WHAT?!"

These reactions have been on the faces of multiple venture capitalists, analysts and local business owners.

Read my story to find out what Speakeasy, which provides Internet and phone services to small business, has in common with Best Buy.
