Request for Ideas
I am about to hire a firm to add shopping to Solport. I will be stocking innovative items, mostly consumer electronics, that are not typically carried by mass merchandise stores. My working slogan is: Solport: The most innovative products in the solar system.

I would greatly appreciate any comments on things you like – and dislike – about internet shopping sites. I am also open to any other suggestions such as cool ideas for logos, merchandise I should carry, places for comments, anything at all.


I get so irritated at those internet sites that have the pop up windows popping up every few seconds right in the way of what you are looking at.

I am looking for some stainless steel utensils that I got as a wedding present. I've searched internet "out-of-stock" sites to no avail. It's frustrating. I'm going to have to buy new silverware, but I want more of the ones I have. HELP!!!!

If you know the name of your pattern, there are any number of sites which will help you find discontinued flatware/silverware. If all else fails, eBay can be helpful.

Here are two product suggestions for you:

First, the eBook Technologies ET1
(This is most commonly referred to the eBookwise 1150)
Portable eBook Reader

Simply one of the best purchases I have ever made!
The unit is barely bigger than a paperback book,
but, with a large MMC card, you can have 50+ books
available at your fingertips.

With the Project Gutenberg Library you have, literally,
thousands of books to read - FOR FREE!

Amazon now offers eBook downloads and several other
sites do as well, so current literature is available,

The battery lasts over 12 hours, the screen is easily
read indoors or out, and the units interface is
absurdly simple to use (Power Button, Page Up, Page Down)

100% recommended!

Next the Shinco SDP-1850
Portable Media Player

This looks like an 8.5" Portable DVD Player, but it is
really much, much more.
It will play AVI/Xvid/Divx/Mpeg1,2,4 video files from
CDs or DVDs, Various Media Cards or a USB Flash Drive.
It will output component A/V to any TV and Digital Audio
to your Home Theater System.
It is Region Free (will play DVDs from anywhere in the world)
and will play NTSC on PAL equipment and PAL on NTSC equipment
It plays DVD+R/DL discs, so you could put 10 AVIs on a DVD,
and show 20+ hours worth of movies to the kids on a long
car trip.
It will play Kodak Photo CDs or a slideshow of JPGs.
It comes with a headrest mount for the car (and a cigarette
lighter power adapter), any cable you can name and a nifty
little remote!

100% recommended!

Yeah, yeah. But does it come with a remote? ;)

The Shinco? Read the last sentence.
The eBookwise? Not sure why you would ever want a remote for something you are supposed to read ;)

Whoops! Make that next to last sentence!
