Netflix changed the way people rent movies. Amazon upended the big-box bookstore. Other online retailers grabbed market share in niches as diverse as contact lenses and pet medications. Why not razors? That's the question posed by a Catonsville firm - along with about half a dozen other online upstarts. They're trying to make inroads in a market dominated by Gillette and still largely driven by sales in supermarkets and other brick-and-mortar stores. 800razors.com, the new local competitor, is the brainchild of serial entrepreneurs Philip Masiello and Steven Krane.

Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field, Chicago's Soldier Field and Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., are the finalists to host the 2015 to 2018 men's lacrosse championships, the NCAA announced Wednesday. Notably absent was the state of Maryland; Baltimore has hosted the event five times in the past decade.

NEW YORK -- It may leave men's faces silky smooth, but Gillette's new razor has hit some rough patches on Wall Street.At a glitzy unveiling last week in the Rainbow Room at Rockefeller Center, Gillette Co. announced the arrival of its new SensorExcel. The company said the high-tech razor would help them improve their already strong market share and keep a step ahead of the competition.But stock analysts have questioned the need for the new razor.

Procter & Gamble Co. has been a big part of my retirement account for quite some time. Should I continue on with it? - J.D., via the Internet One way of looking at it is that Procter & Gamble is now the proud owner of Gillette Co.'s new five-blade razor, the Fusion. But there's obviously more to it than that: P&G's recently completed $57 billion acquisition of Gillette marries a giant in detergent, beauty aids and toothpaste with a leader in razors and batteries. The resulting global consumer-products company wields awesome marketing and distribution power.

Yesterday's mail brought a safety razor, a gift from those nice people at Gillette. I tried it out this morning, it is superior to my old one, and I will probably pay the extortionate price for replacement blades. But why, I wondered, were those nice people at Gillette thinking of me? Then the penny dropped. I had used a shopper's card at Safeway or Giant to get discounts when I bought shaving cream, and the grocer had given, or more likely sold, my name to Gillette as a potential customer for expensive replacement blades.

"The quest begins to find tickets," said Ryan Langhauser, 25, of Ellicott City, who hopes to follow the Ravens to the AFC championship game against the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Mass., on Sunday.

In June 1969, I dug deep for $5 and bought a Mechanic Theatre orchestra seat to see Baltimore's own Anita Gillette advise her audience to "Don't Tell Mama" in the hit musical "Caberet." It was her professional debut here. R.H. Gardner, The Baltimore Sun's critic, gushed in his morning-after review: "Every girl, on leaving home to seek a career in show business, dreams of returning in a blaze of glory. Last night, Anita Gillette did." Four decades later, Gillette is still on the stage, and TV too, as she was Thursday night on NBC's "30 Rock."

A University of Maryland lawyer bought the former mayor's fur on eBay this week and plans to use it to teach ethical do's and don'ts. "I just thought a fur coat with an evidence tag on it would be a lovely prop," said Susan Gillette, senior university counsel at the University of Maryland, Baltimore. Gillette had the winning $1,700 bid for Dixon's Persian lamb jacket, which prosecutors auctioned this week along with a mink and other evidence seized in criminal cases that led to Dixon's resignation.

NEW YORK -- The Securities and Exchange Commission yesterday sued unidentified purchasers of Duracell International Inc. securities, accusing them of insider trading.The SEC said the trades occurred in the two days before the battery maker's announcement Sept. 12 that it would be acquired by Gillette Co. Agency officials said they expect to learn soon who the investors were.The burst in trading in Duracell call options, which gained value as Duracell stock rose, left the clear impression that someone profited from advance knowledge of the acquisition, the SEC said.

Archbishop Curley's Tyler Scarinzi scored a 7-5 victory over Hammond's Class 2A-1A state champion Devon Gillett in a matchup of two of Maryland's best 119-pound wrestlers during Curley's 53-17 win in a dual meet last night at Mount St. Joseph. A tournament runner-up in last year's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association, Scarinzi led 5-0 early after switching his double-leg attempt to a lateral drop. Scarinzi's move, which he started 20 seconds before the end of the first period, nearly pinned Gillett on his back as time elapsed in the first period.
