Internet 'push' technologies received a grilling this week during a panel discussion at the Jupiter Communications conference in New York. Technologists on the panel agreed current solutions, such as those from Pointcast and Marimb,a which are currently battling it out in the corporate sector, are not ready for the mass market.
Robert Pittman, president and CEO of America Online, said he believed current solutions were too complicated for use by the average consumer. He claimed AOL had developed its own version of push technology, Driveway, which will require users to develop their own interfaces to choose what they want to view.
