Could Amazon (AMZN) soon begin shipping organic tomatoes and artisan cheese to a home near you? Amazon's grocery unit, AmazonFresh, has been on trial in Seattle for 5 years, but has been slow to expand out of fear of running afoul of sales tax laws. But now that concern in gone in California, Texas, and elsewhere, expansion makes more sense. High-income areas with major fulfillment centers nearby, such as L.A. and San Francisco, could be especially appealing targets.

    Quite a diverse business model they are putting together: cloud computing, second rate gadgets, and delivering tomatoes... also: is Bezos working on another spaceship after that last one crashed and burned?
