Short Take: Sharper Image online sales up fourfold

Slick gadget retailer Sharper Image said that the holiday shopping surge bumped up its December sales 13 percent over last year's. Contributing to that figure, the company said, was the boost in sales from its online retail operations that shot up 444 percent. Total sales for December reached $67 million, compared with last year's $59.3 million.
