    Wow, I love NetAdvantage. Do I understand correctly that the S&P Industry Surveys are included in this online source? The results I get from an industry search make me think so.

    The news stuff should be very appealing to biz types.

    I like the glossary feature that comes with industry searches too.

    I don’t know why I get a different result for company profiles when I search using the pathway: Companies–> profile –> search by company name, compared to using just a keyword search.

    Keyword search on guitar leads to results where the first item is a company profile for Guitar Center.

    When I follow the search path mentioned first above, however, I get a shorter co. description for Guitar Center.

    Let’s buy it!
