As a consumer who does a significant amount of online shopping, I trust Amazon ,and truthfully I really don't care where they get the products from. I also think there is a sense of security in terms of credit card fraud—I assume that they have better security in place,...

Yes, and that's a very good thing. Seeking out local establishments, whether grabbing a quick lunch at a lobster roll place or a good seafood restaurant for dinner is what makes vacation special. God forbid we go to Red Lobster or any other national chain while on vacation. We...

It will take time and a great deal of legislation to make this worthwhile for traditional retailers. But again, that what was said about alcohol sales at one time. The more progressive retailers may find a way to introduce a separate banner that could cater to this market. I...

The prospects are good as we are all so busy and stressed for time. We MUST have our coffee so if we can grab something for lunch in the same trip, all the better. The challenge will be offering food that is healthy and most of what is offered...

Yes. It is more personal. Texting is generally reserved for close friends and family only. Most marketing messages seem like intrusions, save for "your prescription is ready to be picked up at CVS" or "Your table is ready."

As we discussed recently, trying to get things done on an iPad can be frustrating. For entertainment, it's fine, but navigating a web...
