Grocery chain Albertson's has announced it will offer its online shopping service in
Portland, Oregon, setting up a head-to-head battle with fellow brick-and-mortar grocer
Safeway, which began service there in mid-January. Analysts said the move is a sign that
a second wave of online grocery sales is gathering steam. "There is a certain level of
consumer readiness already built into this market," GartnerG2 research director David
Schehr told the E-Commerce Times.

Hey Keith,
When will eCommerce Times look north and include Canada's Grocery Gateway in its analysis of on-line grocery shopping? There is life outside of the USA.

Is native advertising good for journalism?
Yes -- It's a reasonable source of additional revenue for media outlets to support their traditional editorial efforts.
Yes -- Paid-for articles can contain useful information, but readers might bypass them if they look too much like ads.
Maybe -- But only if it's clearly labeled as paid-for content.
No -- I don't trust any information from media outlets that cloak paid-for content as objective journalism.
No -- Native advertising is confusing and devious, and it threatens the fabric of traditional journalism.
I Don't Know -- I don't understand what native advertising is.
