Virtual Trade Routes: Why Bandwidth Matters
As more people use the Internet to do increasingly complex tasks, the telephone networks that form the backbone of the information superhighway are in serious need of some chiropractic care. Poor connectivity and frequent bottlenecks thwart e-commerce plans and frustrate users. Fixing the problem is going to require massive investment of time and money. Green takes an in-depth look at the possible solutions being explored. [more]

SCO World:

UNIX Business Solutions



Unitel Initiative: IBM, Intel, SCO, Sequent Forge New Unix! Throughout Unix's checkered past, the many attempts at its unification have included various alliances, partnerships, and initiatives. Nearly all have failed, primarily because of the competitive nature of the participants. Now the call to create a unified Unix comes from IBM, Intel, SCO, and Sequent. Perhaps the prestige of IBM pulling the train and the specter of Windows NT bearing down can give this initiative a reasonable chance of success.

Business Apps: Your place or mine?

Call it the revenge of timesharing. Call it rent-an-app. Call it hosting, cosourcing, resourcing, even outsourcing. But whatever you call it, application outsourcing is a concept whose time has come-again. Indeed, the idea is an old one, but there's a new twist, and it has to do with what's getting outsourced, and who's getting their fingers in the pie.

Boom and Doom: A Guide to Money The good news: At the time of this writing, the sky hasn't fallen. The bad news: At the time of this writing, it still might. The markets, money mavens say, are in a "fragile state," investors feeling "shaky," stocks "vulnerable to psychological swings." With the data crunched, the indices analyzed and the factors cross-referenced, expert opinion is split: The global economy has either caught the equivalent of a cold, or the Ebola virus.

Printing in the Future: What are the Alternatives?

When it comes to printing, Unix usually falls far short of its mainframe counterpart. Even with appropriate tools, the Unix printing experience isn't what mainframe users have come to expect. However, though a paperless office might be an impossibility, it is possible to deliver powerful Unix "printing" solutions.

The Rich People's Computer?

It stands to reason that people struggling to get their daily bites of food have nothing left for the more ethereal bytes of information. Take this disparity to its logical next step: The rich, who can afford to buy the new technologies, use them to become increasingly productive and therefore even richer while the poor stand still. The conclusion is as logical as it is inescapable: Left to its own devices the information revolution will increase the gap between rich and poor nations and between rich and poor people within nations.

Virtual Trade Routes: Why Bandwidth Matters

The Internet hitched a free ride on the back of the telephone networks. These networks were never designed for multicast business teleconferencing or multimillion-hit web events. The phone-line bottleneck is bad news for every type and size of business. Poor connectivity thwarts e-commerce plans and frustrates traveling employees and teleworkers.

Display Versus Compute: Why the Windows-based Terminal Is Winning

The Network Computer started as an intriguing concept, but it quickly disintegrated into a political tug-of-war between the major industry powers. For more than three years, each side battled point and counterpoint as to the viability of the NC. As time dragged on, and relatively few NC products (two to be exact) came to fruition, it began to take on the aura of vaporware.

Why Windows Web Pages Have Tiny Text

Most Macintosh users have encountered Web pages with unbearably tiny text. If you haven't, spend a few minutes browsing Microsoft's Web site - especially pages devoted to Windows itself - where it's not uncommon for Mac users to see text one to four pixels in height. This phenomenon isn't limited to the Web. How often have you been forced to edit a document from a Windows user who thinks 10 point Times is a wonderful screen font? Or maybe you've had to review a spreadsheet formatted in 9 point Arial? Do all Windows users have some sort of telescopic vision that makes text appear larger to them? Why, yes. They do.

UGeek 90


Suing for Keywords Estee Lauder and Playboy Enterprises are both suing search engine sites for misuse of their names to generate ad revenue. In the case of Playboy, when someone types in Playboy at Excite or Netscape, an ad is displayed for hard-core pornography. Playboy is claiming that the sites have "hijacked and usurped" its good name. Estee Lauder is suing Excite for ads that infringe upon its trademark, foster unfair competition, and constitute false advertising.

Autobytel: In the Driver's Seat

Could lightning strike again for Pete Ellis? A decade ago, Ellis ranked among the nation's largest car dealers, with 16 bustling lots in California and Arizona. But in the early 1990s, the region's economy collapsed, and by 1994, Ellis' high-speed race to riches had ended in a fiery crash when he filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy and walked away from the car business. By 1995 he started autobytel and watched it blossom into an instant success. Now, Autobytel is setting the pace for buying cars online, but the field is getting crowded.

Ed. - As more large companies stop ignoring the Internet, Autobytel's strength could turn into its weakness and possible demise.

Small Businesses Not Jumping On Internet Bandwagon

Although the Internet is becoming more and more of a business necessity for large corporations, small and medium-sized companies have yet to take advantage of it, a study found. According to the study, released last month by the Yankee Group of Boston, the majority of small and medium-sized businesses have not embraced the Internet as a business tool, nor do they grasp the opportunity the Internet offers to level the playing field.

* 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
    - IBMe-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
