I agree that HEB could be an exception. The Internet is changing consumer behavior for specificity so the trend toward smaller footprint, focused merchandising and service will continue.

Click and Collect, this has serious $$ invested. Great example of solving real consumer problem. The aggregate all of your "clicks" across many e-commerce sites and have them ready for pickup at your destination train station. #retail

Product Placement

This is really creative on Target's part...using you second screen to interact with product placement on TV. check out in the red plus signs on the video. When the consuner clicks, it brings you to that Target site page for that product to facilitate a quick and easy buy.

Product placement will never be the same.

Google is getting into the thermostat business?


Rather than thermostats, Nest’s key technologies were described by Mr. Fadell in an interview last November as “communications, algorithms, sensors and user experience, running over a network to the cloud.

Google has announced it is buying Nest Labs, maker of smart thermostats and smoke alarms, for $3.2 billion in cash. At times like this, it's normal to ask what is in it for each side. This time, that is a particularly interesting question for what it says about our world.
