Now that MTV has decided it will compete with iTunes by offering downloads of music and eventually videos, one wonders how many potential competitors there will be in this space. How many can the market bear? Will content providers ever...

Suggestion Engines

It would seem that software that uses the tastes of large number of people to help suggest products based on your past experiences can significantly increase sales. If the technology is not implemented correctly or nut not implemented at all,...
