Issue No.06 - November/December (2000 vol.4)
Rarely has a new area of business been heralded with such enthusiasm as "mobile commerce." Articles in the press paint pictures of people ordering clothes over the Net while waiting for a bus, downloading merchant coupons on their PDAs as they enter a store, or bidding for the last table at a hot restaurant by digital phone in a spur-of-the-moment auction. But such lighthearted uses represent just the tip of a very big iceberg.
