ADVISORY/Virtual and In-Store Reality Meet
TOPIC: Major retailers are increasingly using in-store Internet kiosks to help customers choose products and make purchases. The technology allows consumers to research and compare store merchandise without the assistance of a salesperson, while blocking software restricts the user to the company's Web site. Some experts predict that eventually every major retailer will have such a system in place.
