@Jacob: thanks for the additional info. I will plead to user error in this case. It's not an isolated incident, however. I don't think I really do that much online shopping, yet, when I bump up against a password/username I haven't used in 6 months, I guess I must.
It's not just shopping, either: it is access to sites to do stuff online (pay bills, get copies, check staus, etc.) I need to find a differetn system to keep track of these things (handwritten on paper doesn't seem to be working) :-)
Himanshugupta, that's right. if you need a feel of the product and to know how it looks like, then obliviously you have to visit the retail shop. But for that you have to spend more time and ofcource the pricing is also on little bit higher side. Online shopping provides you a comfortablty of shopping from your house or office or on the go.
Barabara, in most of the online shopping websites we need to have a user id and password for placing an order. This is a onetime process and will help us to keep a track for our previous orders and store the default payment details along with shipping address. So every time we won't need search for to the printer type and cartridge number. From order history we can know about our previous or specified orders. Some websites are also offerings guest logins without any user id or passwords, but the problem is we don't have the provision to track our previous orders or for storing any info's.

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
