Elgan: Find it in stores, buy it online

Mike Elgan, Computerworld | May 28, 2011
Is it right to shop in a brick-and-mortar store, find what you want, then buy it online? If so, here's how.

There's no need to choose between these three apps. They're all great in their own ways, and they're all free. I use them all.

There are other free apps available on both Android and iPhone that read the barcodes of products, then facilitate online purchase. And I'm sure there will be many more to come.

Is it abusive and unethical to shop in old-fashioned stores, find the product you want then buy it online with your phone? Well, that's up to you.

But if you do it, make sure you use one of the new free apps that streamline the process and help you save a lot of money.

To miss out on this incredible technology would really be the crime.
