Just because thousands and thousands of pets are safely transferred from one destination to another via the airlines, it does not mean that dog owners are without responsible precautionary measures to ensure the safety of their family pet.

Veterinarians care only about the money, right? Sure they have to, but you'd be surprised at how they really feel. Money matters have a lot to do with feelings and ego. In general, vets don't want to talk about money, though if you want to work effectively with your vet, having the dollar discussion may be inevitable.

If you have an cute little puppy running around the house, the last thing you want to see is an accident where the little guy gets cut, poisoned, or stepped on. However, accidents can happen and you should be prepared. Better yet, it is best if you practice safety measures rather than waiting for something bad to happen to your puppy.

There is a lot of advice around for anyone engaged in affiliate marketing, but much of it is un-focused and lacks integration.

Are you looking to buy a used car? Buying the right automobile can be difficult unless you know what to look for. New cars are easier to purchase. However, while going for a used car deal, most of us just see the attractive price and buy it off without even bothering about other important details that we actually need to know.

Nobody talks about it. Everybody keeps their lips very tightly sealed, convinced that theirs is the only child in their class who is still wetting the bed. But bedwetting is far more common than you might think - one in ten six-year olds (10%) and three out of every fourteen-year olds (3%) still haven't quite got the hang of things 100% of the time.

When you are looking for a new car for business use, you have some choices to consider - lease or buy? Both have pros and cons but you need to consider what is going to be most advantageous to your business.

Nearly everyone, adults and kids alike, have a natural fondness for cats. They are loving, quiet, and very playful pets that can provide you with years of entertainment. Although most of us have a fondness for cats, that fondness can rapidly diminish when it comes to the litter box. Even the most hardened cat lover may get tired of litter box duty, especially when it comes down to scooping "you know what" from the litter box.

Magento is become a very popular open source store technology. It has been released for over a year now, and the current versions are very stable.

We have been developing in Magento commerce, and also using it for your own retail for a year now too. We often get asked about Magento Commerce and why we recommend it as a good online store technology.

So, Why use Magento as your online store?

In summary, I think there are 4 main benefits in developing a website in magento commerce:

Features

Magento has some fantastic features 'out of the box'. Most store owners these days want technology that is comprehensive and easy to use. Magento fits the bill. Great features are included in the free community edition such as:

* Wishlists
* Multi store/mall feature
* Email lists
* Compare products
* Bundle/Grouped/Digital products & more
* CMS system for static pages
* Good SEO performance
* Advanced searching
* Layered/Filter navigation

and much more.

We have used all of these technologies in our own installations, as well as client installations. Most features are really good, and the ability to run multiple stores (with same or different inventory) from one database, with completely different 'skins' if you want, is fantastic.

API & Integration

The API is how programmers interface other applications with Magento. Magento has a sophisticated and extendable API allowing it to be connected with many other applications (both web applications and standalone).

For example, you can connect Magento to a number of external accounting systems, email list management tools, ERP systems and more.

This gives Magento a geat deal of flexibility to grow with your business. It can be integrated tightly with other inventory/order/customer systems, and made to work seamlessly.

Magento code structure

Magento has been designed very well from the outset. There is a clear distinction between 'core' code and community/3rd party code. This means you can install other extensions and modules without fear of impacting Magento upgrades in future or breaking how your site looks.

This structure has been integral in allowing MagentoCommerce to grow as fast as it has around the world and is a great reason to use Magento. Many people running older open source ecommerce software are upgrading to Magento.

Community & Professional Support

Magento has a very active community, both of users and developers, many of whom are magento experts. There is already a huge number of extensions that have been built for Magento, both free and commercial, allowing you to upgrade your store in any number of ways with a large variety of 3rd party services and systems.

If you have problems, chances are there is a bunch of users willing to help in forums or professional developers available with the skills to get the job done.

This is only a brief summary of why I think Magento is a great technology to develop online stores in. The community edition is free to download and use, there is heaps of code out there to extend it, and it has a strong API to allow you to integrate the store into your business processes as you grow.
