Euro Seen as Mixed Blessing for U.S. E-Commerce Companies
Though talk of the euro has been largely eclipsed by the widespread hype and hysteria over Y2K, the implications of this monetary change may be far greater than those of the Millennium Bug. Though the adoption of a common European currency will simplify business transactions, the e-commerce outlook for U.S. businesses in Europe is not completely rosy, as Garner explains. [more]

Web Advertisers Search for the Promised Land

Ah, the Internet. For advertisers, it's supposed to be Shangri-la. In theory, the Net enables advertisers to target audiences with pinpoint accuracy. In this magical realm, companies can track not only the people who see their ad, but also what action they took after they saw it.

Ed. - And if we recall correctly, Shangri-la was an imaginary place.

Seeds of Self-Interest

Like a rancher who grows corn to feed his own cattle, the biggest high-tech companies are funneling more and more seed money into small start-ups with the hope of cultivating the products they make and the standards they endorse.

Survey Gives IEEE-USA a Picture of Unemployed Engineers

"It's so sad," said Gaynor Nevergold, recalling her husband's suicide in March of 1997. Richard Nevergold, a 56-year-old engineer and IEEE member, had been so distraught over his unemployment that he took his own life in the family's Florida, USA, home.

What To Learn Next

Change brings opportunity. The growth of the Internet certainly qualifies as significant change, even by historical standards. The corporate icons of the late 20th century are the likes of Bill Gates and Jerry Yang. It may be too late for you to join the under-40 billionaire club. But it's possible (and even important) to get current with Internet technology skills. Otherwise, the next thing you know, an 18-year-old Web guru with multiple piercings will be creating your Internet application architecture. Not that there's anything wrong with piercing, of course.

Yahoo!, Lycos Court E-Retail Biz

Navigation hubs are transforming themselves into retailing hubs. At least that's the case for Yahoo! and Lycos - two portals that have taken definitive steps in recent weeks to cast themselves as magnets for retailing on the Web.

Ed. - We say, may the best business win. But our data for the two portal sites shows Yahoo to have four to seven times more Web influence than Lycos, a lead they are unlikely to relinquish.

Know Your Internet Shopping Rights

The Web remains a relatively new way to shop, but this doesn't mean the Internet is a lawless Wild West where na´ve consumers are victimized and ripped off. Online consumers can benefit from the same legal protections as those who shop by telephone, from catalogs, or by other means.

Euro Seen as Mixed Blessing for U.S. E-Commerce Companies

When it comes to identifying the biggest programming challenges of the late 20th century, the euro has been ranked right up there with Y2K. Modifying computer systems to accept the common currency embraced last month by 11 European countries has not been easy, we've all been told over and over again. But the real story of the euro has nothing to do with programming and everything to do with changing e-commerce for years to come--long after the Millennium Bug has been forgotten.

Update on Java Development on and for the Mac

Apple recognizes the importance of Java apps and applets for the customers it's trying to (re)attract. The iMac is being used by those who want to be online -- and Java is an essential component of that experience. The education market is using Java programs for distance learning and to provide interactive simulations to supplement classroom learning. This article takes a look at tools for developing Java programs on the Mac as well as examples of products that are currently using Java in real ways.

Linux and the Euro Currency: Toward a Global Solution

Starting in 1999, each European will be using this new currency in his everyday life. Even if cash is not yet available, most prices, wages, invoices, etc. will be labelled in euro as well as in national currencies.

Jon Hamkins

Why Win95 is Better than Linux

Because all operating systems are written by programmers, I assume that any operating system is much smarter than me. Thus, any good operating system should try to outsmart me by restricting my options at every turn. Linux, like all versions of Unix, is lousy at restricting my options because at the command line virtually any operation can be performed with ease.

Ed. - Linux humor -- and, yes, there is such a thing -- at its finest.

The Future of Apple Voice Technology Most readers that we've had the opportunity to talk to on MOSR's IRC channel have expressed the same sentiment when asked about the future of Apple's speech recognition and text-to-speech technologies.

Russian Macs on Rebound

The first months following Russia's August 1998 economic crisis were as difficult for Mac-related businesses as they were for the rest of the country. During that period, economic uncertainty drove Mac sales almost to Ground Zero. However, by mid-autumn the first signs of recovery had started to appear, and the Russian market is still a measurable part of Apple's European business.

Intel Eyes Affordable Cable Modems The promise of cable modems may (finally) be fulfilled, if recent announcements are to be believed. First, Intel is developing a cable modem that taps the host PC's CPU and memory, following the lead of software-based DVD decoding. The host-based modem would still require a card to connect to the network, but the reduced chip count should, theoretically, result in reduced costs.

Pentium III Serial Number Is Just a Tool

But Is It a Can Opener or a Gun? Intel opened a can of worms recently by announcing that, starting with the forthcoming Pentium III, each processor it produces will include a unique serial number. Intel hopes this number will provide a useful tool for asset tracking and securing Internet transactions. But its value appears limited, and it could potentially be misused.

* IVB: The Internet Valley Benchmark (IVB) compares a company's zone of Web influence to that of its peers and across industries through the use of a standard value. The set level for the IVB is the current zone of Web influence for Internet Valley. Why Internet Valley Benchmark ?

Internet Valley was founded and coined the term Web Influence in 1995.
IV became the first company to provide the online community with full-scale Web Influence related services.
In May 1996, Internet Valley published the first Web Influence list, rating the Top 100 Online Computer Magazines. Since that time, Internet Valley has continued to develop the hyperlink mechanics-based methods and technology to monitor and evaluate the current level of Web Influence. The basic subjects of this research have been the fastest growing sectors of iBusiness. All this time, Internet Valley has provided to the leading members of the Internet community reliable data, trends and statistics.

Leading members of the IT community voiced their opinions regarding Internet Valley's 3-year effort to research Web Influence trends:
    - Matthew Rothenberg, director of online content at MacWeek.Com, joint venture of ZDNet and IDG, "We are thrilled by the results of the study..." January 5, 1999
    - IBM e-commerce director Scott Gannon: "I think your research is really proven right on.  I think you're focused on the right thing..." January 28, 1999
