Harvey Norman Finally Goes Online

Gerry Harvey's made no secret of how miserable he is with the Australian retail scene, and especially the online shopping future, but he's bowed to the inevitable; Harvey Norman's online presence now offers web shopping -- sort of. Unlike the lame-but-somehow-still-plopping-along Harvey Norman Big Buys site this appears to offer the full gamut of Harvey Norman products, from computers to washing machines, but some products are listed for in-store pickup only, which rather removes one of the most convenient factors with online shopping; what's the point in ordering an iPad 2 online only to have to trek to a Harvey Norman store, find a salesperson, wait for them to find your order and then go home again?
