Designing for the Real World

CDnow.COM

I remember CDnow in its first incarnation as a text-based service! Founded in 1994, CDnow offers an enormous selection of music CDs, tapes, and related gifts. CDnow is an example of a business that was far ahead of its time. The rapid growth of the Web could have caused failure as the business rushed hither and yon to meet the growing technological and service demands of customers. But CDnow remains one of the most successful stories of e-commerce.

With nearly half a million products in their catalog, and close to a million customers, CDnow has been challenged to give their site visitors the best services with the most ease.
