However, the company has tempted the fate with touting that its product architecture would make it bulletproof to the weak economy, making the market reward it at that stage for being the poster child of a success in the tough environment. One should not be surprised with the market’s harsh knee-jerk reprisal once the pure-Internet magic was dented with the latest tamed results.

early teen bbs  has exhausted all the early adopters in its customer base, or that there is really a temporary lull in upgrades due to the overall spending anxiety.
