Build a business case: developing custom apps

The pin-stripped backers behind a US Web site believe they have what it takes to satisfy the demands of Britain's growing population of Net users.

WallStreetGals.com provides all the latest financial news and information hot from the Dow Jones and NASDAQ, and delivered by some of the sassiest female financial brains around.

According co-founder, Jed Baron: "It's Victoria's Secret meets Bloomberg.

Baron contacted The Register after he read that according to the latest research from NetValue.com, Britain is an e-nation of porn addicts and gamblers, with a third of all Netizens in Britain visiting adult Web sites and a quarter indulging in online gambling.

According to Baron, WallStreetGals.com meets both needs in one, detailing the latest financial up and downs with a soupcon of sauce.

He denied WallStreetGals.com was an out-and out porn site, although he conceded: "We're provocative, not porn."

The site's been up and running since December and now boasts some 10,000 members and 5000 unique daily visitors.

So, could the same happen here? Could Britain's penchant for online vice be satisfied by a new breed of Web site - such as ladbrokeslasses.com, totetotty.com or stockmarketsauce.com?

Dunno, is the answer, but you wouldn't bet against it. ®
