Boo.com is back in business. The failed fashion e-tailer opened its online bootique today after going titsup.com earlier this year having ploughed through £80 million of someone else's money. The European e-tailer is now owned by US-based Fashionmall.com, which bought the outfit for an undisclosed sum.



QXL.com goes mainstream today with the launch of QXL.tv today - a new live auction service via television and Net. It will auction a stack of memorabilia from Wembley Stadium to mark the launch. QXL.tv is the new name of ibidlive, a subsidiary of QXL.com plc. QXL owns 62 per cent of the QXL.tv. ®
