 Best Buy initiates a battle of the brands | CNET News.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
The products' broader purpose, however, is to help Best Buy fill in a few gaps on its shelves, in some cases, and boost its overall ability to compete with companies such as Dell, as well other retailers, including Wal-Mart and Sears.
Many of Best Buy's intentions are the same--it aims to guard against competitors and expand its sales--however, it also wants to use the Insignia brand to offer consumers lower-priced products, which others, including PC makers and traditional consumer electronics makers, may not be willing to do, analysts said.
Best Buy isn't planning to release any additional Insignia models anytime soon, but "We'll be ready for the ability to expand that more as we get more into the future," Vitelli said.

The Best Buy chain is eschewing use of the word "Christmas" in their 2006 holiday print advertising.
It is true that Best Buy's 2006 Holiday Electronic Press Kit (EPK) consistently uses the phrase "holiday season" without making specific reference to Christmas, and when we contacted the company's marketing department, they confirmed that "Happy Holidays" is their primary advertising theme for the 2006 holiday season:
We have, however, noted recent Best Buy television commercials featuring Christmas-specific imagery (Santa Claus, stockings hung by the chimney, a tree in the corner of the house), so the company does not appear to be eschewing references to Christmas in all forms of advertising.
