I'm skeptical. Chrome AdBlocker is supposed to do the same thing. Unfortunately, one wrong click voids that idea. If Brave manages to get it right, I'm still skeptical. It's like cable that was supposed to be free of ads if you paid for it. Roku is supposed to be...

I don't see this working. People buy electronics online. Best Buy has an old business model that hasn't worked for years. I can see why they are trying something new but I don't think it's going to work. I don't go to a department store for electronics. I go...

Interesting concept, but have you ever been to a bus station? Delivery is one thing, but inventorying the items to place on certain buses will be a nightmare. Does Amazon expect the bus station to protect their items? I've been to the one in downtown Cleveland and I'm telling...

These young moms grew up with stores like Forever 21 and Charlotte Rouse. I think it's wise for Macy's to explore this avenue. I'm not sure it will work, but it makes sense that it would.

My kids grew up going to Macy's. This is still where they go when...

I don't think consumers will see a thing. Prices on Chinese products will remain cheap. The average consumer doesn't even know what's going on in the U.S., let alone China.

As for margins, if CPG companies make more margin I expect they will keep it. Just like when gas prices...

This is a total "knee-jerk reaction" by a company who is so afraid of political correctness that they let one person's post change the course of their company. When I was raising my kids, it was fashionable for Pampers and Huggies to come out with boys and girls diapers....

I think Walmart is being a great example. I respect that it is a recommendation and not a requirement since they can't control the farms and obviously more regulation and requirements would force new practices that will increase costs. I think implementing this as a recommendation is smart. It...

I'm not sure how I feel about this. Yes, reviews matter and yes, people count on them. Maybe it's because these services are blatantly advertising that they will give good, paid-for reviews. But there are many similar situations that aren't as obvious.

Do technology review companies give more favorable reviews...

I think the biggest winners will be Walmart, Target and Dick's Sporting Goods. Walmart and Target for those people who have a few extra bucks in their pockets due to lower gas prices. Also because they have everything you need to attend or plan a party. If you're buying...

Finally! This technology has been available for so long I can't believe restaurants have taken this long to roll it out. I hope they are also smart enough to put the right "flow" in place at the stores for the pick-up process. It would be a shame if people...
