Holidays push online shopping toward mainstream (News.com). "More broadly, e-commerce sales continue to rise as mainstream consumers go online and get more comfortable using their credit cards on the Net. U.S. consumers are expected to spend about $16.8 billion online during November and December, an increase of 21 percent from the same period in 2002, according to Jupiter Research. That's partially thanks to the number of people shopping online, up by 10 million this year to 64 million."
