No, not w00t, https://www.woot.com is a bit like the Home Shopping Network - they offer one item until their stock is gone. Woot sells electronics stuff, and the prices have been pretty good.

It's an interesting business model - you certainly gain efficiency, but as more competitors spring up doing the same thing, I would think you'd start to lose volume. Yet they may be doing very well

Carried to it's logical end, manufacturers sell direct from their own websites, eliminating or scaling back distribution channels. That can certainly work for some products, and maybe more than I think.
