Even harrowed retail reporters need a vacation.

Point of Sale goes on hiatus next week but will return October 17. Rest assured dear reader, that I will be just as ironic and cheeky as ever. Plus slightly more rested.

Here's what's on the docket:

1. My interview with Target vice president John Butcher on their exclusive music strategy

2. Further thoughts on Best Buy's joint venture with Carphone Warehouse

3. Apple duels with Microsoft at the Mall of America

Peace out.
