Great article! There is a wealth of information on the web and we need products that are optimized for real-time updates tailored to users specific interests on a continuous basis. One such discovery engine is YourVersion (http://YourVersion.com). They offer the best ability to discover tailored content based on my interests and allow bookmarking & sharing through Facebook, email and Twitter. I am a big fan of their free mobile apps (iPad, iPhone and Android) and browser tools (Firefox, Chrome and Safari) which I use to bookmark and share as I browse the web. Check them out: http://yourversion.com

I plan to do my holiday shopping…
Online only -- I like the convenience and comfort.
Online only -- I'd shop in stores if their stock weren't so limited.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I like to see what I'm getting.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I enjoy the holiday shopping atmosphere.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I want to support local merchants.
Online and in stores -- I want the best of both worlds.
I'm not planning on doing any holiday shopping.
