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

virus protection.

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.
