Christina: 'Today we are having our follow up split-screen live stream with Abu Sin in Riyahd. What up Abu!'
Abu appears in the split screen. He is in the middle of a public square, his hands are bound to a pole and his shirt is removed. In the background is crowd of onlookers and a large masked man in black unrolling a whip.
Abu: 'Whassup Christina Just chillin since our last stream, Yo!'
Christina: 'Cool. Do you like Beyonce?'
Abu: 'Totally, but my AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.... favorite is Justin Beiber.'

Spending days, weeks, or months of one's life driving to and parking at crowded strip malls, scouring brick and mortar shelves, then leaving empty handed becasue the store was sold out of your item or was not available in your size, is not the apex of human experience. That time is now used to go to a concert, teach one's kids how to make a snowman, write letters to friends, volunteer, etc.. Many consider that progress.

If online shopping is too modern and 'anti-human' for you, then so too are fake earnest, impersonal, sterile, retail outlets. Perhaps bartering livestock for your next smartphone would satisfy your preference for haggling face to face.
