A La Carte (7/13)

Amazon’s Same-Day Service - Amazon has a new tactic in battling retail stories: “Now that it has agreed to collect sales taxes, [Amazon] can legally set up warehouses right inside some of the largest metropolitan areas in the nation. Why would it want to do that? Because Amazon’s new goal is to get stuff to you immediately—as soon as a few hours after you hit Buy.”
