The Cold Hard Fax
Fax over Internet protocol (IP) burst on the scene about two years ago as a sure thing. With the potential to cut business customers' fax costs in half, it was poised to become a runaway easy sale for any Internet service provider (ISP) with a backbone. But in truth, IP fax has been harder to sell than it looks. Customer acceptance has been slow, and sales forces haven't been managed correctly. Most of the large national ISPs have deployed this value-added service, but nobody wants to talk about sales numbers. [more]

Nuthin But Net: Making Changes to Remote Systems

Undoubtedly, you have had to make changes to remote systems if you administer a network with more than a handful of machines. For many tasks, it is easy to use rlogin or even telnet to make changes quickly. However, the term quickly is relative. Making the changes to a single machine may be quick, but the process becomes a burden when you get to your 20th machine.

Now You're In E-Business

Web sites run the quality gamut, with some no more than a snippet of text giving the owner's pedigree, and others offering the shopping experience of Pikes Place Market, Faneuil Hall, and Fifth Avenue in one snappy package. But for those firms moving from providing corporate information to actually selling goods and services online, it doesn't matter what the face looks like if the infrastructure doesn't hold up. When e-commerce is a company's primary business model-or even a secondary channel for selling products-that company's service reputation is exposed like never before. And by extension, so is its IT support operation.

Meta Tags: Intel Pentium III Launch

The slogan reads "This Way In" and the crowd of journalists pouring into the San Jose Convention Center are possibly the most gadget-happy group of hacks ever assembled. Besides the usual assortment of cell phones, pagers and laptops, there are a slew of the latest pocket communicators, digital cameras and minidisc recorders being wielded by the 100 plus members of the press that Intel has brought here to preview the launch of the Pentium III processor.

Wavelength Division Multiplexing

Bandwidth in communications is like closet space in your home—you can never have enough. And Internet traffic is making the demand for communication capacity grow faster than the wardrobe of a teenager with a no-limit credit card. Bandwidth-hogging megabytes of animated graphics are replacing compact e-mail messages. The communications industry needs room to breathe.

Moving Back to the (Palm) Desktop

Since installing Palm Desktop 2.1 I'm not reaching for my PalmPilot as often. Now I'm looking up addresses and checking my calendar using either Palm Desktop or the Instant Palm Desktop menu. I'm using my PowerBook's modem to dial phone numbers, and I'm viewing and sorting my personal information in ways I'd never considered. Like an amphibian that exists comfortably either on land or in the ocean

Here's how the search engine works: a user types in either a product name or keyword and then receives a list of the product at different e-commerce sites with pictures of the product and an URL linking to that site directly.

The Webbies: Hollow Statues

As your eyes glaze over this week from reading all the award show hype and PR-ish coverage, keep in mind that none of it really matters. Sure, it's fun, and it will give you a big People magazine kind of thrill to spend your water cooler breaks chatting with your work friends about how the Webby Awards, which take place Thursday, are getting more and more like the Oscars each year. Or, for the cynical, chatting about whether all award shows are inherently evil. But does anyone, besides the show's promoters and participants, give half a damn?

A Year's Worth of Shame

I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore! I'm not sure why, but Internet-related software is the most buggy software on the planet. These bugs come in three varieties: 1) Mildly annoying; 2) Infuriating; and 3) Blood curdling. Originally, I'd planned to use this collection of Internet software bugs as fodder for my monthly "Shame on you." However, I collected so many that I decided to get them off my chest all at once, lest they crowd out more deserving offenses.

* 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
