Webmasters Under Pressure, Under Fire
The job of managing a company's Web site is a pressure cooker, one in which the heat infiltrates from above and below. The early success of Web sites as marketing arms and revenue generators has raised the expectations of managers, who want to bring the sites in line with their business's bottom-line objectives. At the same time, departmental users want to push more of their initiatives over the Net. The result: Most Webmasters say their daily pressures continue to mount, and many fear losing control of their sites' priorities, according to an annual survey of Webmasters conducted by Inter@ctive Week and Advantage Business Research.

Idiot Savants

Maybe you've noticed: Internet stocks are trading at all-time highs. Your colleagues are doubling their salaries trading stocks online. Startup valuations are denominated in billions, and the money is flowing like wine down the palm-shaded streets of Silicon Valley. Welcome to the wonder that is the World Wide Web.

Ed. - Seems like a fool proof plan to us. No word yet on the IPO.

Vendors Bet on Services, Standards

As Internet commerce moves out of its adolescence, it is very quickly becoming central to the strategy of many businesses. With that shift, the giants of the computer industry are taking on the daunting task of becoming one-stop shops for customer needs. At the same time, they have to ensure interoperability with their biggest competitors' products.

Strategic Knowledge: Innovation Leadership Undone

Innovation has become the operative word in business. From reengineering to corporate transformation to product “Web-izing,” the idea is the same: finding ways to make money with a new product, service, or process. Now, however, warnings about the sustainability of U.S. innovation leadership appear.

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.

Payment Systems: The Buck Stops Here

It doesn't take a retailing genius to understand that the flurry of Internet buying--$9 billion worth in 1998, according to the U.S. Commerce Department--signals a momentous turn for e-commerce. And the numbers are only on the way up. Forrester Research Inc. predicts that Internet buying will top $3.2 trillion by 2003. Now, Web merchants need to know that the buck stops with them to get their online payment processing systems in place.

Filtering with Servlets

Web forms are ideal for presenting the question and answer sessions required in a testing scenario. Thanks to ubiquitous Web browsers, users can take the test from anywhere, but the automation presented here can also grade the test and provide feedback to readers after they've answered the questions. In principle this is all very easy to do, especially if you pick the right technologies—XML and servlets.

Java 2 Development Kit Making its Way to Linux

An informal group of Linux developers known as the Linux Blackdown Porting Team is scheduled to make an implementation of Java 2 for Linux available this week. Officials from Sun Microsystems, which showed the programming kit at its booth during the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo in San Jose, CA, this week, said Sun opted to work with the Blackdown team rather than develop the implementation itself as part of an effort to broaden the base of Java without overextending company resources.

DECnet Network Protocol

This article contains information on how to use and configure available DECnet software as well as information on how the kernel code works.
DECnet was designed by Digital as a way to interconnect their range of products. In its Phase IV implementation, released in 1983, it can support 63 areas of 1023 nodes each. The specifications for DECnet Phase IV are freely available (see Resources), which has allowed others to provide DECnet connectivity in products such as Sun's Sunlink DNI and Linux.

127 Ways to Get Over the Missing Floppy

Whether you're enjoying your 'legacy' iMac or already waiting on a new fruit flavored one or a G3 Pro (likewise sans SCSI or parallel ports), the problem is quickly shifting from famine to feast of peripherals and adapters. The question is no longer "where's the floppy?", but "when are they going to up the 127-device limit?"

Ed. - For all the media's complaining about a missing 1.4 megabyte floppy drive, Mac users appear to have found plenty of alternatives.

Mac OS X Server is Here - and the Price is Right

Combining the strength of Unix with the simplicity of the Mac OS, the industrial strength operating system can be purchased from Apple Authorized Resellers and The Apple Store for US $499 -- with an unlimited client license. Apple says Mac OS X Server, when coupled with a new Macintosh Server G3, is the fastest platform for running Apache for under U.S. $5000 - outperforming Linux, Solaris and Windows NT Server.

Ed. - Apple's history of charging premiums for its products  appears to have been expelled in favor of increasing market share with competitive prices.

Next-Generation Mac Architecture Open to Cloning?

If third parties created their own boot ROMs to initialize their hardware, and used components close enough to Apple's own to be compatible, along with Apple's rumored move to open-source Mac OS X, that architecture could be relatively easily cloned and released (most likely with royalties to Apple) with no outward differences between the Apple version and the clone version. Apple would be guaranteed its share of the pie, but would also save itself any work involved in the creation of clones, something that nearly killed it during the first round of cloning.

iMac Sales Defy Gravity

Sales of Apple's iMac computer are trucking along -- back up to the same level as when the machine first debuted, according to a study by ZD Market Intelligence...
ZD Market Intelligence analyst Aaron Goldberg attributed the rebound to the announcement of Intel Corp.'s Pentium III chip, which may have caused a slowdown in the "Wintel" market, and the timing of Apple's G3 advertising campaign.

Ed. - The iMac's success has been the catalyst in Apple's march back to profitability and respect in the IT industry.

OS X Jumps on the Open Source Bandwagon

Apple interim CEO Steve Jobs, springing yet another surprise on the computer industry, announced today that the company will give away the source code to key parts of its new Mac OS X Server software, which is now shipping. Apple thus becomes the first major operating system developer to adopt an Open Source strategy.

Microsoft Preps MP3 Alternative? Embrace, extend, and then bear hug. Microsoft is reportedly taking aim at the growing online music market with a proprietary audio format that runs only on--you guessed it--Windows. Microsoft has been quietly preparing the format and approaching record labels for content, according to music web site MP3.Com.

What's the Best Way to Benchmark?

A benchmark is like sex. Everybody wants it, everybody is sure of how to do it, but nobody can agree on how to compare performance. Part of the problem lies in the fact that microprocessor performance is not a one-dimensional vector. Microprocessor drag racing is all very nice, but the average embedded designer is looking to balance the often-contradictory demands of power consumption, performance, code density, price, interrupt response, and probably other factors. A combination that's good for one application may be unusable for another.

* 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
