Auto makers advancing in e-business by shutting down e-business units. Both General Motors and Toyota are shutting down their separate e-business units and folding them in to the overall business. Rather than viewing this as a step backwards for Internet commerce, we view this as an advance because it indicates a greater acceptance and use of the technologies as a normal part of doing business. The fact that we still refer to the use of Internet technology as "e-business" indicates that it still not fully adopted. After all, we don't speak of "telephone business" or "fax business," because those technologies are simply part of how companies do business today.
