Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  1. Shopping online is more popular than it has ever been. Millions of users go online every day to buy everything; from groceries to fashion items. Improvements in electronic commerce technologies come changing the way you shop. These advances come with greater risk and with a component of customer service quality that is becoming less human.

    The most obvious advantage of online shopping is its convenience. The days of having no choice but to leave home to buy are a long and distant memory. Now, thanks to smartphones and wifi, the convenience is there in our pockets, at any time of the day or night. Most physical stores have a limited stock; But online you will find a much wider variety of items, which otherwise might not have been available. Another great advantage of online shopping is the potential to save money through effortless cost comparison.

    But, they also have disadvantages. By making an online payment through an insecure transaction, you may be exposed to fraud or identity theft. Another disadvantage is not being able to physically see what you are buying. Also the human service to the client when things go wrong. Too often, a robot can not solve its problems, but human help is not available or difficult to obtain.

    There is no doubt that online shopping has revolutionized our experiences as customers, and will continue to do so as technological advances continue. But it is important to keep track of the risks that we can not ignore and the new risks that can arise from online purchases; which becomes an increasingly normal part of our daily lives.

  2. Online shopping is extended in the world and nowadays it is so popular in our society because it allows that people can buy something on internet without going to the store. It is more comfortable, faster and it is more variety.

    Going to buy is very difficult for many people with disability for example people can´t walk. The difficulties in struggling past in-store railings and reaching counters and changing rooms, even if he is using his walking sticks. For this, disability people go to buy in stores is so difficult and a bad situation.

    Many things it´s better go to the store because you can see it , you can touch it and you can prove it. Also many people loves going to buy because it´s a great experience and a way to relax ; but in some situations people have a problem with it because they spend a lot of money and they need buy many things all the time, so it is considered a addiction.

    I think that the online shopping is a good way to buy without go out of house but I prefer go to buy in stores because I can prove it.

    the inconvenience of buying on the Internet for example if you buy clothes or shoes you do not know what exact size will be right for you, that's why I prefer to go shopping at the shop to try it, but it seems good that you can online shopping
