On the other hand, the Internet is becoming increasingly commercial, with major corporations creating home pages to lure passersby. Some are already established, like Wells Fargo, who offer on-live service and promise interactive on-line banking in the future. Some companies have even set up business on the Web. CD Now is a CD/tape seller that is based solely on the Internet, and provides to-your-door delivery. (Watch out for shipping costs.) They also offer a rating system, so you can separate the best from the also-ran.
