      habits are actually quite important on the Internet. Originally, people gravitated to Google (GOOGL), for example, because I think the search results loaded faster and they gave higher-quality search results. But nowadays, I think most people just go to Google out of habit.

I'm leaving aside enterprise software that's delivered through the Internet--software-as-a-service model. That's really more on the regular technology-software side. But in terms of just pure Internet businesses, I'd say, first, search engines. The big names here are Google and then [TICKER:BIDU] Baidu in China. The second category would be social networks--also, very strong advertising business models. For the most part, I
