I will never in a million years understand why "Rakuten" would be a better root url for a shopping site than "Buy."

"rakuten" is Japanese for optimism.

Perhaps optimism they can survive against the Bezos Machine?

They get to rebrand themselves and all the while, buy.com will still takes you to rakuten. It's like opening a whole new retail establishment. People that don't like buy.com NOW HAVE A NEW OPTION.
