Drop Changes Not For Me
I have been a longtime Massdrop / Drop customer with well over a hundred transactions. That said, almost all of my interest was in the product categories that Drop has chosen to walk away from. It just astounds me that with Drop's array of highly regarded venture partners, they'd make such an awful set of changes. How many mechanical keyboards does one need? Compare to the number of knives and watches one could use. Even if I assume that there were analytics that told them the future was in Mechanical Keys, in today's superheated retail environment - you couldn't find a way to split off or sell the other businesses? It wasn't worth even forking your site to try? As an entrepreneur myself, just walking away from a significant portion of your customers is really hard to understand.
