Hi iam looking your posted coment is nice.

It couldn't last forever?and it didn't. Finally, scores of e-businesses that once enjoyed astronomical capitalization in spite of their vague business plans, modest sales, and absence of profits have been called on the carpet. The experimental first era of e-business is over and now its time for the next, when companies will deliver customer value and make a profit or disappear altogether.
