TECHNOLOGY ALERT
from The Wall Street Journal


November 7, 2000

Pets.com said it will shut down its online pet store and lay off about 255
of its 320 employees after a search for a buyer proved fruitless,
and  struggling vitamin seller MotherNature.com said its board unanimously
voted to liquidate and dissolve the company due to its lack of
prospects  "to be financed as a going concern."
