Most of us are familiar with affiliate programs: Webmasters provide links to e-commerce sites, and every time someone buys something due to that link, the Webmaster gets a (usually tiny) cut of the profits. Fortune's William Gurley is enamored of this scheme and its latest incarnation, which requires more effort on the user's part and probably pays no better.
Software Technologies Corp. (STC) has added high-level business logic tools and an open message architecture to its redesigned suite of enterprise application integration tools.

"Half our customers are outside the U.S.," says Rackspace.com CEO Graham Weston. Rapid global growth makes sense, as "high-bandwidth sites are expensive to host in Europe," according to Formula1.com CEO Nicky Morris. But it also opens the door for a lot of competition, especially in Europe.

Digital music is a few years old and, like tech stocks, it's done nothing but gain popularity and generate massive hype - with good reason. All those legal, business, artistic, and consumer issues wrapped up in one package make the digital music story an interesting one. This month, the Atlantic Monthly joined the fray.
It's not clear whether Tuesday's market drubbing is the start of something bigger for Net stocks. Few would argue that Internet stocks will avoid a large correction in 2000, but when the market is roaring upward, it's hard to give that idea more than lip service. Hot markets such as we've seen since October can obscure the obvious. Getting clear about what's obvious is the first step to being prepared for it.
Remember December's parade of identical e-commerce stories? We saw Grinch-like online retailers robbing kiddies of toys and journos making grandiose predictions about who'd survive the season. You'd think once the holidays ended, the media would find something new to say or tactfully change the subject, like the guests did when Aunt Trudy noticed Junior's tongue ring at Christmas dinner. No such luck.
Wal-Mart bet its e-commerce future on the savvy of Silicon Valley late Thursday, announcing it will join with blue-chip venture firm Accel Partners to spin off its online retailing operations into an independent company, to be headquartered in Palo Alto, Calif.

Flash is quickly emerging as the preferred way to overcome the nagging performance limitations of hard disk drives. However, because flash comes at a significant price premium, outright replacement of HDDs with flash only makes sense in situations in which capacity requirements are relatively small and performance requirements are high. Learn how deployment approaches-including hybrid storage arrays, server flash, and all-flash arrays-that combine the performance of flash with the capacity of HDDs can be cost effective for a broad range of performance requirements.
