My first choice in shopping is e-commerce. Amazon rocks! I don't like shopping at physical stores anymore. Salespeople these days (especially the kids) act like they're doing you a favor.

Think how much better off we would be if sales tax was actually charged on the purchases made on Amazon. Thats fine if we loose brick and mortar stores due to that advantage b/c those folks will no longer be able to shop anywhere including Amazon.
