When the Home Shopping Network (or HSN as itâ€™s known today) launched its cable channel in 1985 it was a truly novel concept. I can shop? From my couch? In my pajamas? Little did HSN know that it would be a trailblazer for the online marketplace of modern times. Although the channel still exists the website delivers that same convenience to shoppers who want to get the goods without leaving their homes. And who can blame them? Malls can be terrifying places. And you canâ€™t beat clicking the â€śPurchaseâ€ť button from the comfort of your bed.
