Shopping in a holodeck?

Putting together the Microsoft idea and this idea Debenhams are using we might be getting a little closer to living the Star Trek way. I really want to try this new idea out – which girl doesn’t like dressing dollies, even if the dolly is herself ?
Add all of that to what Apple are doing and we are really starting to see a revolution in shopping. The thing that every ordinary human being has to do at sometime in their life. How many of you out there currently shop online? I bet you that in 18 months time some of you will be using Apples new technology. Are we going to need bank cards?
For years I’ve been talking about the computer that sits in the corner of your sitting room – generally called a TV. Before he died Steve Jobs had plans for this too and it looks like his company are already taking the idea forward – is everything going Apple?
On a slightly more serious note before I finish. Do you have an avatar? Look what Kristine Shomaker (aka Gracie Kendal) is doing in aid of cancer research. I like this idea and the work Kristine is doing on identity is interesting too.
