The next day I received a very nice reply. "The Internet is HUGE", they said. "We predict it will be five years beforerepparttar 102610 market is saturated with our product. And long before that, we will have introduced our next product." They were right, of course. The problem was not withrepparttar 102611 market (the Internet is huge).
