The article focuses on Rousseau Aurelien and his company Second Rotation, which sales and purchases second hand electronics through its Web site Gazelle. Aurelien estimates that only 1% of people in the U.S. bother to go online and sell their old electronic goods. He is betting that the current economic downturn will push more consumers to sell their used products for cash. Gazelle offers the most desirable used gadgets on Ebay or Amazon, and sends the less popular items to wholesalers.
