Calif., Sep 20, 1999 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Sony
Broadcast & Professional Europe and BroadVision Inc.
(Nasdaq:BVSN), today announced a partnership to develop
e-business services to its customers in the European
broadcast and professional electronics markets. Initial
applications are under detailed study at present and the first
new services will become available during the winter.
Sony aims to develop these services to provide a raft
of new offerings to its customer base via the Web.
"We started a detailed study in the early summer on
how to use e-business to create closer relationships
with our key customers. We quickly identified
BroadVision as the key supplier of e-business software
solutions and found their offering a excellent fit to our
existing IT and Web requirements," said Miles Flint,
President of Sony Broadcast & Professional Europe. "We aim
to become the leading supplier of customized
Web-based services in the industry and this important
initiative is another example of our on-going commitment to

technology and One-to-One Marketing techniques can transform

quickly identified huge opportunities to use e-business
and Web technology to extend the company's
interaction with its customers who are spread across many
diverse markets and who are increasingly looking for
applications tailored and customized to their specific
concerns. A Sony project team has set as a key requirement
the early availability of applications that would
enable a greater understanding of market trends and
customer needs within each of the market sectors that it
serves. The strategy for Sony is to develop e-business
services that will be relevant to both its direct and
dealer channels in the coming months.

Don't mean to monopolize the Board (damned this
is a quite Board) I like that. No shorts talking BS
like the others! Just a FYI - I think Dell is going to
get beaten up pretty well as the analysts are
claiming since they sell direct, there is no back-up
inventory to speak of, there appears to be a drag in the
chip production due to Taiwan earthquake and earnings
are expected to be less than predicted. Personally, I
feel the earthquake is a mild setback and DELL will be
a hell of a good long holding. Price should slump
but will be short term buy opportunity as DELL beats
the pants off of CPQ. A buying opportunity is all I
am promoting here just in case anyone is interested.
I'm long DELL as well as CSCO and buy on the dips!
If you like this one please take a look at Nextel
and Oracle. Not to mention Qualcomm. Unbelievable
returns since June. All of those companies, including SNE
have something special going for them. IMHO Qualcomm
(QCOM) is gold, handsets stink and they are getting out
of this business - its their CDMA technology that
the get royalties paid to them by all the other
handset cos that use it (all the good ones, including NOK
use it on the better units). ORCL is by far the most
reliable software and is up and coming. Again, a special
product. NXTL against has handsets that stink, but they
are king of the bandwidth (they have a special
walkie/talkie (if you will as I don't know what you call it)
that connects businesses to other businesses. No
residential stuff only business. Again, something special.
I'll never own another internet stock personally as
these companies have something to offer. Not spamming
here - just offering good stock opinion. I had Comsat
(CQ) not CMCSA and tendered it to LMT. Another good
bet is DISH. I prefer it over GMH that owns DirectTV.
Good investing friends.
and didn't get any...just rising this AM....may
get another chance as markets all "tank" again?
GO SONY.....love that memorystick too!! UP, UP
again, in a dive in the markets!!! Go innovation! Go Big
Name brand...GO quality reputation, et.
was about 120 US$ (not $15)....darned fingers.
And I just checked latest profile and the target was
raised to 18,800 YEN, ($163 at the time) whatever that
translates to today, up from old target of 14,800 YEN. Sorry
Got in too much of a hurry before dinner
SNE briefly on the concern that earnings would be
lower due to a stronger yen. Now that that is over it
would be foolish to remain short on SNE. I am long
Comcast (CMCSA) and went long on BMY as these 2 stocks
have been beaten down recently on no bad news. They
will rebound when 3Q earnings roll around!!!
luck. MAy you make $$$ as well!!!
