  • Amazon.com (AMZN) denies media reports, says it has no plans to open brick-and-mortar stores - anywhere.  [View news story]
    I kinda like the idea. With good data modelling of what items are typically ordered by the surrounding region, a pick up facility/store could be a fix for the "gotta have it now" customers.

    Where I live, Virginia already requests a voluntary tax payment on goods purchased over the internet. Maybe Amazon will pick up some of the tab, due to the reduced shipping costs. This is probably wishful thinking :)

    I would think an easy location to return items to, would draw market share away from the internet vendors with punitive return policies. Maybe even a mobile pick up service that tweets it's location...

  • Today in Commodities: Suspend Your Disbelief [View article]
    Your commentary is superb, Matthew. It's what got me into commodities. Please keep posting. I think gold is in the process of purging all remaining short positions, and may continue up for some time.
