Asian Deals Groupon Like Review

Even though Groupon hasn't made any profit, their proof of concept and momentum by users is so encouraging that copy-cat coupon or collective deals system are the latest internet shopping trend. Groupon is hoping for a powerful IPO this year. This online shopping megatrend is set to overdrive with more and more devices freely connecting to the internet these days. From netbooks, Ipads, smart phones and the convergence of voice and internet offerings in 4G networks to Long Term Evolution technology. Plus the imminent increase in the cost of travel (oil price increase is a given), shopping online and in particular hunting for herd mentality deals, has become acceptable and to some, it is indeed a fun online experience.
