It is simply not sustainable for brick and mortar stores to act as free showrooms for their cut-price, tax-evading competitors.
I agree, and I think these devices will change that relationship.
I know there are items I will not buy without seeing them firsthand. But if I can go to a BestBuy and inspect the device, I'll go home and buy it online.
As mentioned by buckworks, that cannot go on forever. Definately good for consumers in the short term.
