Comment Re:So Amazon is turning into the thing (Score 1) 167

Spending days, weeks, or months of one's life driving to and parking at crowded strip malls, scouring brick and mortar shelves, then leaving empty handed becasue the store was sold out of your item or was not available in your size, is not the apex of human experience. That time is now used to go to a concert, teach one's kids how to make a snowman, write letters to friends, volunteer, etc.. Many consider that progress.

If online shopping is too modern and 'anti-human' for you, then so too are fake earnest, impersonal, sterile, retail outlets. Perhaps bartering livestock for your next smartphone would satisfy your preference for haggling face to face.
