Are you looking for some great deals on technology? Online technology has made shopping a breeze compared to the old school way of doing things. Do you remember the bygone days of holiday shopping? Stampedes of shopping maniacs, grandmas hitting each other over the head with their purses, fender benders over cabbage patch dolls and Furbies. Ah, the good old days!

Shopping websites with pages of product summaries give you an online shopping solution for using web site technology to make wise purchase decisions. Before, you would have had to look over newspapers and catalogs, and drive all over town for what you wanted, but website technology has made it easy to buy exactly what you want and have it delivered straight to your doorstep. For the beginner, try www.buy.com or www.froogle.com.
2. Second Hand Purchases
Online shopping site technology has made it possible to purchase quality used items at great prices, from anywhere in the world, through sites like Ebay and Amazon.

3. Saving Money on Gas… and Whole Lot of Time
Thanks to online shopping technology like PayPal, you can do ALL your shopping without having to give out credit card numbers, burn up gas, spend time traveling or risk getting stampeded by mad shopping crowds. If you don't like the idea of shopping online, you could always join the shopping craze out there in the “real world!"
