THIS WEEK'S COMMENTARY=====================================

An Insider's Look at the Next Economy 

Editor's Note: I hope that everyone had a great 4th of July with their families.  Due to the holiday shortened week, the RagasReport decided to take a short nap this week and enjoy some of the beautiful sunshine here in Florida. 

Of course, the report will return next Friday with its regular dose of insider commentary and analysis of the tech sector.  In the meantime, I thought I'd share with you some of the great endorsements that my new book - Lessons From the eFront - has recently received.

Don't forget to visit the new website for Lessons From the eFront and enter to win a FREE Palm VIIx handheld.  You can also download the Introduction to the book from the site. 

The future is now.  The Next Economy is now - read about it!
