 /* PORTFOLIO GOES CATALOG MAIL ORDER */
 B. N. GENIUS, a national chain of specialty store similar to SHARPER
 IMAGE, has featured the Atari Portfolio palmtop computer on the cover
 and double inside front spread in their latest catalog.  The Washington,
 D.C. based company has stores in many cities but does the bulk of their
 national business via the popular glossy mail order catalog.  Only
 months ago, the competing SHARPER IMAGE company was rebuffed by Atari
 for mail order sales, although the Portfolio was approved for showroom
 sales.  While the additional exposure and sales of the Portfolio will
 undoubtedly help Atari overall, some Atari dealers are concerned to see
 their formerly exclusive sales territories invaded by mail order...
 something that Atari had at least implicitly promised would not happen.
