The covid 19 crisis, has highlighted massive inequality when it comes to technology, the above online stores are clearly aimed at those who have access to the technology, the more we move on line, the more people who don't have access will fall behind, what is worse when they are able to get online they will feel even more pressure to use Facebook and other centralised, data grabbing systems, which then collect data, generate ads and more pressure to buy buy buy.
Covid 19 could easily kill off cash, which could affect many other parts of our life, not that the big corporations or banks seem to care.
