Alternately known as the World Wide Web, the Internet, and tool of the Devil, the information superhighway can’t be denied as the 21st Centuries hypermarket, a kind of virtual Agora.

[+] thisisfurniture.com: It’d be easy to drop a few pounds at this website; ridiculously huge selection, watch the conversion factor.
[+] urbanoutfitters.com: same as the store in downtown Frisco or Georgetown in DC, but now you can have the look boxed up and sent to you.
