The year 2000 is bringing a Pandora's Box of gifts to the computer world, and the latch is slowly coming undone. The year 2000 bug is not really a "bug" or "virus," but is more a computer industry mistake. Many of the PC's, mainframes, and software out there are not designed or programmed to compute a future year ending in double zeros. This is going to be a costly "fix" for the industry to absorb. In fact, Mike Elgan who is the editor of Windows Magazine, says " .
It is my assessment that Compaq does still remain the leader because their products are very easy to buy for the uneducated consumer. You may simply walk into the WIZ or BEST BUY and there are five or so Compaq machines all competitively priced with a good range of attributes, usually not the best that a veteran user would require. For instance CCC's newest product, the iPac, is a very simple-to-use, inexpensive machine. It is supposed to satisfy business workers' needs for a useful computer at low cost,(Wildstrom 1-2). Another problem in CCC's not-to-distant future is their distribution costs.
For many, the dot com collapse in the mid nineteen nineties seemed like the end of corporates’ place on the internet. Very few people trusted these new online companies, which led to many promising websites disappearance, but a few Silicon Valley projects that were able to survive greatly shaped the new wave of e-commerce. Following in the footsteps of success stories such as Amazon.com, many companies have reshaped the way they conduct online business and are fighting to stay in front of new technological advancements during this decade of rapid technological change.

The Small Business Administration is one of the first resources that come to mind for many small business owners looking for guidance or help. And for good reason, since the promise of government-backed loans and free advice sounds like a pretty good deal. Having run multiple startups and grown them to become multi-million dollar entities, however, I can tell you that the guidance provided by the SBA just barely scratches the surface of what business owners and entrepreneurs need to know to be successful.

Hence, the current shape of the company, in which it has lost 60% of its stock value reflects the new demands of the market. There is little that Dell is doing wrong in terms of supply chain and value chain. The only problem lay at the front end, where it is not doing a good job to brand its computers and make them more attuned to public demands.

As the company continues to expand around the world and into once unexplored niches of the market, it will continue to implement the same logistical strategies that have been so successful in the past. With many companies around the world using Amazon’s model in their own businesses, it is evident that Amazon’s strategy is successful and capable of growing with the ever-changing culture of running an online marketplace.
