US retail giant Target [has confirmed](http://pressroom.target.com/news/target-confirms-unauthorized-access-to-payment-card-data-in-u-s-stores) that hackers gained access to payment card data that could mean 40 million credit and debit card accounts are at risk. An official statement says that the retailer is "aware of unauthorized access to payment card data that may have impacted certain guests making credit and debit card purchases in its U.S. stores" and is now working with law enforcement and financial institutions having "identified and resolved the issue". The accounts in question were targeted, no excuse for the pun, between November 27th and December 15th in order to hit the increasingly busy seasonal …

Research from ecommerce solutions provider SellerDeck (which used to be known as Actinic Desktop) has revealed the top ten ecommerce turn-offs that online retailers need to avoid at all costs if they are to turn clicks into sales. ![sellerdeck](/attachments/small/0/sellerdeck.jpg "align-right") At the very top of the avoid list comes insecurity. Your website doesn't actually have to be insecure to turn the shoppers away, but just give the impression that it might not be secure. This should be engraved in stone and filed under 'well duh!' to be honest, but it seems that too many online retailers still fail to take …

A retail company must file a monthly sales tax report listing the sales for the month and the amount of sales tax collected. Write a program that asks for the month, the year, and the total amount collected at the cash register (that is, product sales plus sales tax). The sales tax is split between the state and the county. Assume state sales tax is 4 percent and the county sales tax is 2 percent. If the total amount collected is known and the total sales tax is 6 percent, the amount of product sales is calculated using the formula: …

While most eyes this week were trained on Las Vegas and the Consumer Electronics Show, Microsoft was gearing up to speak with retailers at the [url=http://www.nrf.com/]National Retail Federation[/url]'s annual [url=http://events.nrf.com/annual2010/Public/MainHall.aspx?ID=5938&sortMenu=101000&exp=3%2f13%2f2009+10%3a07%3a54+AM]Conference and Expo[/url] in New York City running tomorrow through Tuesday. The company [url=http://www.microsoft.com/Presspass/press/2010/jan10/01-08nrf10ma.mspx]announced yesterday[/url] that it will be demonstrating new products to help retailers differentiate the customer interactions through connected experiences.

When Microsoft first announced their retail strategy back in February I wrote a post called [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry4030.html"]Microsoft Retail Strategy Doomed to Fail[/URL] and I haven't changed my view. Today,[URL="http://blogs.zdnet.com/microsoft/?p=3358"] it became clear[/URL] that in the face of all common sense they are continuing to push forward with this wrong-headed idea. Remember, Microsoft sells mostly software except for the Zunes (which haven't been exactly [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry3880.html"]flying off the shelves[/URL]) and XBox 360s. The strategy with software around [URL="http://www.microsoft.com/azure/"]Azure[/URL] and [URL="http://voices.washingtonpost.com/fasterforward/2009/07/microsoft_previews_office_2010.html?hpid=sec-tech"]Office 2010[/URL] for the web appears to be headed for the Cloud. So why would they need to sell cloud software out of a …

This looks like it could get very interesting, very quickly. The online auction outfit, eBay, seems to be in the process of having something of a corporate clearance sale. There were stories circulating a couple of weeks back that [URL="http://www.itwire.com/content/view/24377/1231/"]Skype could be sold off[/URL], possibly back to the original owners, with anything up to a billion dollar discount off what it paid for the Internet telephony outfit just four years back. Now it appears that eBay will indeed bee disposing of Skype, but instead of selling it back to the original founders it looks like it will be spinning it …

I saw a netbook at a discount chain store the other day that I want. It's an [URL="http://us.acer.com/acer/product.do?link=oln24g.redirect&changedAlts=&kcond5e.c2att92=843&CRC=2745306029"]Acer Aspire One[/URL]. It has 1GB RAM and a 160GB Hard Drive for $296. Awesome deal. The problem, at least for me, is that it comes standard with some whittled down version of Windows XP. This wouldn't ordinarily be a problem but I prefer Linux on my potential new netbook. Why don't you just buy one with Linux then? This store only carries the Windows version and I can't get the Linux one at the same price. Such a dilemma! My option is …

Microsoft has been active lately, showing some signs of spunk. I reported last week that Steve Ballmer was going straight after Apple at the McGraw Hill Summit (as I wrote in [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry4155.html"]Ballmer Wastes No Words Going After Apple[/URL]). This week we see the release of an [URL="http://byronmiller.typepad.com/byronmiller/2009/03/new-microsoft-ad-goes-after-high-price-of-apple.html"]ad campaign comparing Apple prices with PC prices[/URL], and it actually appears that there is some cohesiveness in the Microsoft message. Ballmer says Apple's too expensive, followed by the ad campaign that reinforces that message. I know, Marketing 101, but it's a change from what we have seen from Microsoft (and a stark departure …

You have to give Microsoft credit. They keep trying, even if what they are trying is copying Apple. This time they have announced they are going to open retail stores. Sound familiar? It should because it's what Apple has done so successfully with its Apple Store strategy. The problem Microsoft faces with this approach is that they lack a portfolio of good consumer products to sell and it will take gobs of money to set up these stores. [B]Step Right Up for a Microsoft Genius[/B] Seems they want to set up something akin to Genius Bars at Apple Stores. Not …

After posting [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry3340.html"]5 Things I Wish Linux Had[/URL], I did some mulling and gathered comments from readers and compiled this additional list of items that I wish Linux had. I've also included one thing that I wish Linux didn't have. These are part of my 2009 Wishlist and are more focused on the future direction of Linux. Most of them will move to my 2010 Wishlist but I think they're important enough to begin work on immediately. 1. Current Software Compatibility - Many would be Linux users won't make the switch because they have made considerable investments in Windows-compatible software. …

We've all heard of search engine optimization, or "SEO". That's the online search engine mechanism that allows online businesses to seed their web landing pages with key code words to entice visitors and shoppers. One big SEO term this week is "Black Friday" -- the day-after-Thanksgiving shopfest that launches the holiday shopping season. Online retailers are already advertising their Black Friday shopping specials - - and getting good results. This leads me to believe that the holiday shopping season will be more robust than the notoriously negative national media would have us believe. Here are some early numbers to back …

You guys know how big I am on video game makers as solid stock plays. But what about video game retailers? One of the big ones -- GameStop -- has seen its share price double to $58 during the past year. One of the big reasons why is the mushrooming market for used video games, which analysts say is a busienss that is growing into the billions of dollars. I'm hardly alone. Zacks.com retail analyst Rob Plaza thinks GameStop is at the top of the list of holiday season retail winners this year. "The list is getting thinner and thinner. …

In the customer service game, perception is everything. It can spell the difference between a company recording its annual revenues in black ink or red. I read a story once in USA Today about a guy named John Barrier, who didn’t like the way a bank manager in Spokane, Washington, looked at him. John was wearing a construction helmet and grungy clothes. The problem began when Barrier went to his bank to cash a $100 check. When he tried to get his parking slip validated to save a buck, the counterperson refused, saying he hadn’t conducted a transaction. “You have …

Okay, you have to admit, I called that one. In our last blog, I pointed out that a tight money supply could prevent companies, especially smaller ones, from getting money to grow their businesses, make new hires, do more research -- that sort of thing. I said that if companies couldn't get access to money, the economy would suffer. The Federal Reserve had to act (okay, I didn't mention the Fed specifically, but calling Batman wasn't going to help). So what's the big deal with a tight money supple? Imagine you're a small web design firm looking to roll out …
