You really need to actually see these things working in most cases.
Never mind the PC is dead it's the High Street that's dead!
I've grudgingly moved to online purchases as music stores/movie stores/book stores/game stores have all died.
Now it seems the stores with bigger items are dieing too e.g. white goods stores like Comet.
As Fishy says, they cannot compete with the internet (and I'll add supermarkets to that too).
I had a pal who loves internet shopping, buy a pram for a few hundred quid a year ago and I asked if he at least bought
that in a shop. He said he drove about 40 miles to a real shop, he pushed a good dozen round the shop, kicked some tyres, quizzed the expert shop assistants who really know their stuff for all the advice they could give.....then he went home and bought one online (that he'd pushed round the store)....and saved a whopping £30
This guy earns far more than I do (tight git), I digress.
This was a real life illustration of why....The High Street is dead.
