Vanessa’s Variety for the Week of April 25th, 2008

Posted on April 25, 2008 by Vanessa

I am happy to say that today is intern appreciation day at the SurPlex.  An excellent lunch, a basketball tournament, foosball and video games will be enjoyed this afternoon; I, for one, am quite excited.  Let’s get down to the business of eCommerce, and check out my updates for the week.

  • Free sales-tax will no longer be a benefit of shopping online in New York. 
  • Amazon uses friends to help create product recommendations, and a few other tools you may not be aware of. 
  • Blockbuster throws Netflix for a loop by offering to purchase Circuit City. 
  • Apple may be more susceptible to economic slow down in the United States because of their presence is strongest here as opposed to overseas. 
  • Microsoft is testing Live Mesh, a system that enables users to synchronize their handheld devices and computers by way of an internet based application.
