    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Early estimates from comScore Networks Inc. show e-commerce spending over the November and December holiday season is expected to exceed $15.8 billion, up 29 percent from the year-ago period.
    The Chicago-based market researcher said consumers spent $14.8 billion online between Nov. 1 and Dec. 26 versus $11.5 billion during the same weeks in 2003. Rising consumer confidence played a role in the last-minute surge in holiday spending online and offline.


    E-commerce typically does not benefit from last-minute holiday buying, so the 2004 trend is surprising. Several factors contributed to the boost in late shopping aside from consumer confidence.


    Finally, the flower, greetings and gift-basket category was the fastest growing this holiday season. This was evident during the week of Dec. 20 as consumers switched to gift options that could be delivered on the same or next day.

    The best-selling categories over the 2004 holidays were consumer electronics and computer hardware. Computer sales were strong late into the season. Apparel sales rebounded from a weak showing in recent holiday seasons. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Sure shows to all here that the network sponsored theftware partners and the cookie stuffers were busy Christmas Grinches. My over-all income was down 76% from last year's totals on increased click totals. TigerDirect was completely broken from October 1st to Dec 6th as their computer sales rang up a banner Holiday season. For the first time since they stopped tracking in Christmas 2000 I was skunked in October & November.

    Comscore I believe, as I saw computer gear under every Christmas tree of friends. PS...all infected with adware/spyware within the first 10 minutes they were hooked up to the internet.

    And it's going to go up and up and up. Interesting fact is online retail sales only account for 2% of all retail sales. So big growth ahead
