3. Saab

4. American Apparel

5. Sears

6. Sony Ericsson

7. Kellogg’s Corn Pops

8. MySpace

    Could be by the wayside, but it seems as though their competitors might be waiting in the wings to pickup the pieces or should I say profits!

    ABC is getting rid of two of their Soaps so I can see Soap Opera Digest biting the dust!

    I think American Apparel was on the list last year. They just keep enduring.

    A & W? Corn Pops? (see where my mind runs... I am only concerned about the food) LOL!! Sears too?

    On a strange note like the above though... I saw boxes of Quisp Cereal in Target the other day.... I haven't seen Quisp since I was a kid, or thirty something years ago... Eeek Confused

      Quisp was introduced in 1965, and discontinued in the '70s due to low sales. They unsuccessfully tried selling it in every decade since then. Apparently it has been available online, and they sold it direct from the company. In August of 2010, it was re-introduced through SuperTargets. "Quisp has come back to earth, find him at Target!" They've even posted some wallpaper and a little video about it at .

      You are right (you have good a memory! Big Grin ), they were even advertised together with their character mascots competing against each other.

      From Wikipedia:
      The commercials often asked children to choose which cereal was better. The competition reached its peak in 1972, when a series of commercials asked children to vote for which cereal should remain on the shelves. Quake had a makeover in 1969, but that was not enough. Quisp was the winner and Quake was discontinued.
