Between the Lines
The other day we were talking about missed opportunities
with a Nassau Street stockbroker. He told us about ignoring his
son a few years back, when his son urged him to buy McAfee stock
everyone would soon own a computer and all the computers would need
That was nothing, we told the stockbroker. We recalled a moment seven
or eight years ago when we informed a computer supplier that our
was going to ignore the Macintosh platform and instead go 100 percent
into Microsoft PCs with Intel chips and Hewlett Packard printers.
"If you love the product so much you should buy the stock,"
the guy told us. That seemed like a foolish way to pick stocks, we
thought at the time.
Oh well. Unlike all of you and everyone else in the world, it seems,
we didn’t buy those blue chips seven or eight years ago and now we
are still working for a living. But we do spend a little more time
thinking about today’s opportunities.
A one-time opportunity to check out what’s new in technology presents
itself on Thursday, July 23, from 4 to 7:30 p.m. at Novotel when more
than a dozen exhibitors will participate in the U.S. 1 Computer
and two panels — at 4:15 and 5:15 p.m. — will present the
insiders’ view of the Internet. Attorneys Rachel Lilienthal Stark
and John MacDonald of Stark and Stark will describe the hazards of
Internet law. The Internet of the future — using it without a
computer — will be the topic for a panel moderated by Mark Meara
of Princeton Internet Group with Mary Evslin of ITXC Corp. and Michael
Wynblatt of Siemens Corporate Research.
We noted in the story about ITXC in the July 15 issue that it has
already gained first round financing of $10 million. Hmmm. Could there
be an opportunity here? What do we know? But this time, at least,
we will be there July 23 to find out what we could be missing out
IN THE JULY 8 STORY on Biomimetics, U.S. 1 erroneously reported that
Schoemaker’s Gourmet Pizza had gone out of business. Erik Schoemaker
did close his retail business on Palmer Square in 1994 but continues
to operate Schoemaker’s Gourmet Pizza from a virtual office at 4371
Provinceline Road (609-921-2854). His wholesale pizza products are
manufactured and packaged in Ohio.
Jet Messenger did indeed buy out the Macy’s Courier Service (U.S.
1, July 15) and has changed the mailing address to 54 Ethel Road,
Edison 08817, 732-521-5530; fax, 732-287-1052. But, says Jim Oshry,
the sales manager, the 40-year-old firm has not permanently closed
the South River Road office. Rather, it is installing a
dispatching system in that office. Founded in Edison, Jet Messenger
has offices nationwide; it specializes in time-sensitive (same-day)
delivery of anything from documents to freight — mail runs,
mail, legal documents, critical parts for assembly lines, and home
health care equipment.
The correct numbers for the Equifax automated credit report request
system (U.S. 1, July 8) are 800-685-1111 and 800-997-2493.
