Shopping online in the 1950s

As an online seller, I couldn't help but be amused by this picture shared over on Retronaut showing how we would be able to shop from home some day.

I think it is so interesting to see how the future was imagined! Sometimes they were way off, but in this picture from the 1950s, in fact, they were absolutely right - shopping channels were created in the 1970s and Americans were able to buy from the privacy of their homes using the telephone.

But, as we know, it didn't stop there and in the 1990s, Amazon and Ebay were created and today shopping online is something a little different from what is depicted there. It became something so common and simple as clicking on the "add to cart" button.

  3. That means you need to find out a proper way by which you can create valuable posts for your readers which also can give you maximum revenue from the Google AdSense. It is the main secret of making money from AdSense. So, obviously it's quite tough for the new bloggers. But, if you're using the Google Analytics then you can do this very easily! shopping Online Pakistan

  4. The sales are TOO good to miss. If you want to find the highest quality items in luxury consignment, look no further than The Real Real. I scored a pair of Kenzo loafers that had never been worn and a Fendi scarf all in one order. IT Experts

  6. The first question that some of you would ask is why shop online at all, when you can just visit the neighborhood store and buy the clothes that you need? promotions in dubai

  7. Even better, finding a good watch does not mean you need to break the bank. There are a lot of good options under $150 with a lot of functionality and a lot of style. womens watches
