Re: It will take time
@StaceyE my question would - what if... as with technology changing rapidly... Co still overlook many things... expecting product life cycle of 2 to 12 months... before upgrade... sad and scary reality...

I think companies that start out in the virtual environmet do well to stay that way. I have heard of a couple companies that have successfully opened brick and mortar locations...but haven't heard a lot of success stories of brick and mortar companies switching over to a completely virtual environment.

I agree that is a big problem. Many companies focus on beating other companies to the next "greatest thing ever". The result of this is exactly what you stated...a half cooked product with little or no testing. I think some companies would do much better if they put more time and testing into their products...they might actually produce the next best thing ever!

Your right as with any new technology, only time will tell if it will be accepted or rejected. I think its important to test new processes or technology before fully implementing them into any business.

Re: It will take time
@ Batye,

It really could backfire if not implemented properly. If a store decided one day that it was going to close its doors to its brick and mortar, and sell its products striclty online, it would surely lose some business in the short run.
