Remember boo.com?

Have a look at this teaser for a new boo.com. Very neat site – move the slider left and right.

Back in the late 1990’s, boo.com aimed to bring a new shopping experience for clothes to the Internet. However it was ahead of its time and in the pre broadband world relying on Flash and Javascript meant the site took minutes to load for many users. Boo.com was seen to epitomise the late 1990’s Internet boom and bust; it allegedly burnt its way through nearly $120 million before collapsing. If you’re interested in the boo.com story have a look at their Wikipedia entry.

With thanks to Pat Phelan for spotting this.

  1. Yeah I saw the new sliders on boo.com last week – they’re pretty cool alright. Still doesnt give much of a clue as to what the new site will be all about. I see that there is an claimed insider blogging on behalf of the new boo.com – hasn’t given much away yet though.
