Newsflash: Everyone Shops Online These Days! / Companies / Internet

By: EconMatters

Antiquated Retail Sales Reports

It is obvious that retail sales numbers are going to be awful for eternity because they are antiquated reports that fail to adequately capture the changing consumer trend of shopping online. Practically nobody is going to waste their leisure time going to a physical store when they can save time, gasoline, and easily search for the best price in a matter of minutes versus spending hours driving all over town in search of the best price or deal with mall parking. The Physical store business is dead, unless one needs to get a haircut, or a good grocery delivery business hasn`t yet arrived in your area.

The Email System the NSA Can’t Access / Companies / Internet

By: Submissions

Ted Baumann writes: It’s been a busy month on the privacy front.

For starters, word got out on August 5 that Russian hackers stole 1.2 billion user names and passwords across several kinds of websites. Then Facebook got into hot water — again — when it decided to force its risky Messenger app on unwilling users. Meanwhile, a U.S. senator warned that users of wearable fitness-tracking devices are unprotected by any privacy law, putting them at serious risk. And the European Union is poised to counter a U.S. court order demanding Microsoft hand over data stored inside its Irish servers.

How to Profit from RadioShack’s Coming Demise / Companies / Internet

By: DailyGainsLetter

George Leong writes: Retail is tough, especially the bricks-and-mortar end (i.e. physical stores). Blockbuster and Circuit City are examples of two major companies that plummeted into the abyss after failing to recognize the strong moves long ago towards online shopping with the growing popularity and accessibility of the Internet, based on my stock analysis.

.UK Domains Do NOT Pre-order - Ignore 123-reg and other Registrar Sales Misinformation / Companies / Internet

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Some 10.5 million .co.uk domains are registered which means there is a huge amount of potential demand for the new shorter .uk domains that are set to become available from 10th of June 2014 which has prompted many domain registrars to send out sales pitch emails, and other advertisements enticing .co.uk domain holders to urgently act to pre-order .uk domains.

Why I Love Amazon.com but Won’t Buy Its Stock / Companies / Internet

By: Vitaliy_Katsenelson

You should look at your portfolio and want to throw up a little — this is how one value manager described what a true, die-hard value investor’s portfolio should look like. The two stocks I wrote about in my latest article — American Eagle and Aéropostale — have a tendency to elicit that unpleasant reflex in many investors today.

When Net Neutrality Becomes Programmed Censorship / Politics / Internet

By: BATR

The worst fears of all free speech proponents are upon us. The Verizon suit against the Federal Communications Commission, appellate decision sets the stage for a Supreme Court review. The Wall Street Journal portrays the ruling in financial terms: "A federal court has tossed out the FCC's "open internet" rules, and now internet service providers are free to charge companies like Google and Netflix higher fees to deliver content faster."

In essence, this is the corporate spin that the decision is about the future cost for being connected.

Why Facebook Stock is a Dead End Investment / Companies / Internet

By: Money_Morning

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: I've made no bones about my feelings for Facebook Inc (Nasdaq: FB) - that it's overrated, a flash in the pan, and ultimately doomed.

Yes, the company just knocked the ball off earnings yesterday. And the stock is up 4.86% as I write this. But I really couldn't care less what happens in the short term. I still can't get behind its long-term potential.

Tara Clarke writes: Over the last month we've seen Facebook's (Nasdaq: FB) dramatic share price rebound, Twitter's stock IPO announcement, and LinkedIn (NYSE: LNKD) stock on fire, but have you ever wondered... how do social media companies make money?

To find out, we turned to Money Morning E-commerce Director Bret Holmes. Part of Holmes' job is to utilize web advertising via social media platforms to best market Money Morning. As a result, he's on top of what's going on inside of today's social media giants.

By: Money_Morning

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: It used to be that companies went public after achieving a modicum of success. There were business models, calculations, and plans, all based on real results and proven success.

Now it's all about potential.

There are still plans and projections, but proven success has been hard to come by.

Welcome to the Internet Industrial Revolution - Some People Will Get Stinking Rich / Companies / Internet

Michael A. Robinson writes: You've heard stories about him before - the savvy stock analyst who gets his hands on the hottest new smartphone before Verizon's first bulk order ships... only to smash it to bits so he can see what's inside.

The idea is simple: If you know which company manufactures a small - but key - component in the product, you can invest in it and make a bundle.

NPR published an interesting map of the most visited websites around the world by the Oxford Internet Institute in UK, which compiled the data from Alexa on August 12th, 2013. While it is not surprising that the Institute found "The supremacy of Google (Nasdaq:GOOG) and Facebook (Nasdaq:FB) over any other site on the Web is clearly apparent,' there are some other interesting findings as well.

Is Rackspace's Cloud Computing Being Vaporized? / Companies / Internet

By: Money_Morning

David Mamos writes: Rackspace Hosting (NYSE: RAX) is currently the number two provider of cloud computing. The company has been under the microscope lately as its stock has dropped nearly 45% year-to-date.

But the microscope is not just fixated on Rackspace, it's also focused on the entire cloud computing sector.

This sector is growing rapidly with analysts speculating enthusiastically that the overall cloud market could reach anywhere from $40 billion to $70 billion by 2016 or earlier.

John Whitefoot writes: The new millennium taught us two important things. First, the Y2K bug was an urban legend, and second, you can’t trust the pomp and flash of a dot-com company. There’s no silver bullet to investing; you still need to do research.

Who can forget the (presumably) well-intentioned and glittery hype that attracted investors to promising dot-com firms like Webvan.com, Pets.com, Kozmo.com, GeoCities.com, and Flooz.com? Where are they now?

3D Printing, Bitcoin, the Digital Age Revolution Has Begun / Politics / Internet

By: Jeff_Berwick

Welcome to the official beginning of the digital age!

When I first heard that the Internet had finally come to fruition in 1994, I could hardly contain my excitement as I'd been waiting for it since I got my first computer in 1981. When I heard about the Internet 13 years later I didn't even know what anarchism really was or had heard the word libertarian, but I instinctively knew that most problems in the world could be solved if people would just have more of an ability to communicate and to get access to real information. Having grown up in Canada, I was certain that the government's Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) was not giving me the full and truthful picture of the world!

Why Internet Sector Stocks Have Lots More Upside Left / Companies / Internet

By: InvestmentContrarian

George Leong writes: Google Inc. (NASDAQ/GOOG) is up seven-fold from its initial price and could be well on its way to being the first $1,000 stock. Another heavy-hitter is priceline.com Incorporated (NASDAQ/PCLN), at over $700.00 a share and sizzling on the charts. At a new 52-week high, eBay Inc. (NASDAQ/EBAY) continues to dominate the Internet retail space. The commonality between all three of these companies is that they are all leaders in their respective Internet space, based on my stock analysis. There are pundits suggesting the best years for the Internet stocks are now behind us. I don’t believe that.

French Internet Tax Should Have Google, U.S. Web Giants Very Worried / Companies / Internet

By: Money_Morning

David Zeiler writes: A proposed French Internet tax is just the latest sign of an increasing desire among the major European Union economies to do more to force the big U.S. tech companies to pay their "fair share" of taxes.

The French Internet tax, an option proposed in a 150-page report released last week, would attempt to tax the collection of personal data. It's directed at such U.S. tech titans as Google Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOG), Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN), Facebook Inc. (NYSE: FB) and Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL).

The Internet Just Became a Dangerous Place, as Governments Try to Seize Control / Politics / Internet

By: Jeff_Berwick

The Internet is more dangerous than ever before… and not because of “child porn” or Craigslist personal ads… it is because of governments.  Within that sinister cabal of governments known as the United Nations, control-crazy members like China, Russia and the Arab countries, are trying to seize control of the free flow of information. As reported in the Wall Street Journal:
