Should we Get Rid of the "E"?

What's with all this "E" stuff? e-learning, e-commerce, e-books, e-business! I know that it's a relatively new way of doing things but haven't we done it all in this way long enough to get rid of the "E". After all, when you go shopping, you don't say - "I'm going m-shopping (for mall) or if you are going to the bookstore to buy a book or magazine, you don't say - I'm going to the r-store (real). You just say - I'm going shopping or I'm going to the book store with no qualifiers. The "E" is just a method of delivery. Sure, it's using high tech and very different from the way things were done for decades. I think that in the not so distance future, the "E" prefix will be gone. Why don't we help it along??
