Emerging channels are an intoxicating source of revenue.

If you're able to capitalize on them, the sales they'll generate will make you the envy of your competitors.

This week, we saw a couple of interesting emerging channels pop up - from the integration of HTML 5 web apps to Amazon's AppStore to Nintendo's modest success with its social StreetPass games.

Whether these emerging channels will transition from narrow trickles to broad streams remains to be seen, but let's not let that distract us from looking back on the week that was.
