Set to capitalize on peer to peer technology in a huge way, they are offering a browser "skin" that allows linking to and download from other desktop users -- any digital content you like from ebooks to music.

Various payment processing solutions for small business online. These folks have been around for awhile and although they take a hefty chunk of sales, it beats some of other options for little tiny businesses like mine. ;-)

Unbelievably, there are more. But I'll save them for later. Good show. Most journalists were discussing low crowd count and a few no-show show demonstrators. I was real happy to have chance to talk with some innovators without too much t-shirt tossing and was glad to see Siebel Systems salespeople with nothing to do. Little-guy solution providers were quite busy.
