    Give me some ideas of e-business companies that are comparable.

    Sorry, the e-business part of the company needs to be comparable. So in my example, the online renting and delivery of movies.
    So I can't do a local flower shop or casino

    Also, it would be preferable if the companies were public.

    amazon.ca vs. chapters.ca
    dell.ca vs. apple.ca/store

    You could argue that any large bricks&mortar store now has a way to buy online, so it becomes pretty easy..

    bestbuy.ca vs. futureshop.ca (though, both owned by the same parent company).
    homedepot.ca vs. rona.ca

    Depending on what you're doing, make a list of 100 pay porn sites.

    Many people are dealing car parts, computer parts, cell phones from their homes. They get if off website cheap and turn it around for a profit. Those ppl cruise the internet all day for deals.
