There are five components in the online sales process. Information sharing, ordering, payment, fulfillment and service and support. As a consumer myself who shops both Online and at "brick and mortar" stores, these are the two Steps that I feel are the most important.

The best way to look at a computer when it comes to information, communication, and specifically reading, is to think of it as a medium, just like a newspaper or book. As new generation of consumers enters the market that has grown up with this medium and has had the Internet as a part of their daily life, we will see more interest in E-books. Copyright laws, privacy worries, and recreational reading preferences are holding back e-books currently. But it is slowly growing. Online educational Institutions like University of Phoenix rely solely on e-books and many consumers interested in learning will go to the Internet before going to the bookstore.

Since it is was my intention while in school to focus on creating educational multimedia for children, I wanted to focus my research on something that would be related and could prove useful to my chosen field. I would like to focus on 3 areas that the Internet can be or is used to improve education. Interactivity, Collaboration, and communication

Computers have transformed the educational process. They have created a new approach to the learning experience in traditional and non-traditional classroom settings. Computer-assisted instruction has been common for a long time, but the development of multimedia and the World Wide Web has presented many new opportunities for educators. What does the Internet have to offer education?

I recently did some extensive research into copyright as it pertains to the internet and logo design. The most important tip I learned was that the more original and different the identity is from it's competition, the easier it is to protect, registering a mark gives it the best protection, and proper research beforehand will help the designer avoid being held responsible should there be any litigation. (Designing brand Identity, Pg. 127) I have learned what the different symbols mean and what qualifies you to use them. I was surprised to learn that you can us TM (Trademark) and SM (service mark) without registering the trademark. Only the (R) requires registration for use.

I thought that the common myths listed in Designing brand Identity where very interesting, so I did some online research to find the answers.

What are the implications of allowing visitors to store passwords in cookies?

When I ask myself this question the first thing that comes to my mind as a negative result would be a parent making an online purchase, saving their password in the cookie and there 5 year old son get's on while they aren't looking and makes more purchases.  Although this can still happen, when I purchase on Amazon.com I don't have to fill in any user info, not even my cc. While I find this to be incredibly convenient, I can see how it could become a problem.
