An article in last weekend’s New York Times magazine bemoans the possible death of shopping – or shopping around for a deal. Soon, the author, Walter Kim, predicts, we will all be running around Best Buys with our phones set to ‘scan’.  When we find the product we want, we simple scan the barcode or at least the details of the products and within moments a text message will come back to us with the prices of the same product at the nearby Circuit City or Cost Co.
