The arrival of the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book means it's time for many of us to start making a list. And while NM's fantasy gifts may be a bit too pricey, you can still Web-window shop at a terrific online version of what used to be called The Book.
A shopping resource for the rest of us is at Shopping.com, where Ipod, Sony and IRiver PMP 120 were the most popular searches in the last two weeks. "Star Wars" was #4, coincidental with the DVD release of its trilogy of films.
The profitable comparison-shopping site is preparing for an initial stock offering, but recently reduced the size of its expected offering.
