One of today's biggest shopping web site is eBay, we can easily buy every things for eBay.


My five-year-old and I went on the Old Navy website to pick out clothes before we went to the store for school shopping (you need to go in with a plan when shopping with a Kindergartener). But once we picked out the clothes, she wanted to order them online. Her dad accused me of flaking out on school shopping. So I asked my daughter, "Are you SURE you don't want to go to the store?" She said, "Yes, mom, it takes too long to go to the store."

Out of the mouths of babes....

The next step "feels" like virtual shopping. You get to put on special glasses and gloves go to the computer and virtually shop by feeling and looking at the item from the comfort of your own home.


I think we see two distinct shifts in shopping. One shift will be how we search for what we want to buy whether its tangible goods (a new home theather system that is web enabled, includes a service to convert my CDs to MP3s and matches my decor) or intangible (find me the best value for a trip to go whitewater rafting in September that leaves on a Thursday and returns on a Monday, avoids Hartsfield/Jackson airport and includes reservation with a top rated whitewater outfitter) through the use of shoping agents - little bits of code that we turn loose to look for what we want and reports back to us when they find it or if it needs more information. The second shift wil be an increase in the services and experiences that we purchase and how we preserve and share them. Instead of a video of 6 or 8 rafts on a whitewater rafting trip watcghing each one go thought a particular rapid you'll be able to purchase a HiDef DVD or your trip down the river via the helmet cam that you can watch on that home theather system and share with your friends where ever they may be maybe even in realtime.
