Short Take: Channel A shuts down

Channel A, purveyor of Asian home and living products, has shut down it operations. Originally created to capture the "Asian experience" online by focusing on content and community, the service evolved into primarily an e-commerce retail site by the end of its two-year existence. Chief executive Peggy Liu cited a lack of sufficient funding as the reason for its closing.
