FTFA: "You really do need to have an account with the store so that they know what e-mail address to contact you at," she said.

That's why I violate my bank account by putting each item through as a separate charge.

/but why does the Apple Store do that when all they sell is data??

He knows his audience. Think about people oblivious enough not to know that. They probably are the only people who watch the local evening news.

Seriously, how hard is it to place a timer on an item in an e-cart that gives you x minutes to complete the checkout process before the item becomes unavailable.

If I am in a brick and morter store and pick an item off the shelf, I am able to walk to the register and pay for the item. Some of these websites essentially let another shopper pay for an item and when you get to the register with your cart say " I'm sorry, this person already bought it" and take it from your cart.

If it's in my cart, it's mine for 2-5 minutes. PERIOD!

/Most annoying part of online shopping.

Fab.com has a little 20 minute timer on their cart, which renews every time you add something to it.
