They All know a good HYPE marketing "push" when they see one. I mean look,
here you are still thinking about years after it was foisted on a hype
hungry net.

Portals, weblogs, Push, client server, RAD, VR,.....all in a long line of
proud hype inflated if not hypetotal moves to keep you, the consumer public,
thinking in terms of brand names.

Meanwhile, back on the ranch, email ftp telnet and that lovable Port 80
whackiness still keep serving...
