The Ecommerce News Roundup – 6 September 2021

This week we were asked the question “can holograms & avatars replace Zoom video calls?”.

Many of us are, of course,fed up with never-ending Zoom meetingsbut would attending the meeting in VR instead actually be a;benefit;or is it a technological solution to a problem that doesn’t really exist?

…. we’ll let you ponder on that.

And more alarmingly (given we’re only just heading out of summer) countless individuals are already looking forward to the season of glad tidings!

Yes really! John Lewis has just launched their online Christmas shop after searches for its festive products ‘skyrocketed’.

So to keep us all grounded and not feeling that everything has been thrown in the air this week, here’s our latestEcommerce & Digital News.
