Why is it so hard to find out more information about a product? You would think retailers would be anxious to make available lots of supporting information, so it would be easier to make an informed buying decision. I would think putting that information right out in the open won’t be too hard to do, since most of it comes from the original manufacturer anyway.
Since the late 1990’s some might say the early online auto parts pioneers were just plain crazy. Heck, if my fax machine works, why do I need email? If my print catalogs work, why do I need to have an Internet site? And who in their right mind would trust to ever use a credit card on a computer, no less?
