A Monster fall: how the company behind Beats lost its way • SF Chronicle
Melia Russell:
<p>There was a time, not long ago, when Monster was on everyone’s ears. From 2009 to 2012, its sales of headphones, audio equipment and cables grew tenfold. That year, the company sold a billion dollars of gear, including the hit Beats brand. CEO Noel Lee hung out with music royalty like Lady Gaga and Mary J. Blige.

Now Monster is ailing, as is Lee, amid a fight with a former executive. Its sales have plummeted nearly 95% in five years. Retail stores such as Circuit City and RadioShack that once sold its wares have gone belly-up. Its partnership with Beats dissolved before the headphone maker saw a $3.2bn payday in its sale to Apple. A February Super Bowl ad, the company’s first ever, was a dud, with Marketing Week rating it a “loser.” And new ventures into online gambling and cryptocurrency have gone nowhere.

A company that once hung its name on San Francisco’s Candlestick Park is fighting for its life. While Lee proclaims that the company he founded four decades ago will see another 40 years, the company started laying people off in September.

Its South San Francisco headquarters now occupy just part of one floor of an office building. It shut a distribution center in Las Vegas late last year. In May, it reported having 139 employees, down from 800 a decade ago; the company won’t say how many remain.</p>

Amazing; it relied on retail outlets for its products (which always promised far more than they could offer). That 95% fall in sales, though? They should be paired with HTC - which was also involved in Beats's early years.

Gnoll (5e Race) - D&D Wiki
Gnolls are infamous among races such as humans and elves for their brutality and demonic heritage. For the most part, they aren't wrong. Many gnoll packs are indeed aggressive and have a demonic side to their affairs. Typically they worship the demon lord Yeenoghu. They also tend to be rather aggressive and are still mistrusted and avoided. To them, the pack is more important than anything else.
