I must admit I always get a laugh of lifehacker articles, full of rhetoric but little or no substance. Based on this article we should all pack up ad go home.

I am somewhat the same although there is some inevitability about the introduction of a lot of these companies coming in. Only have to look at the Aldi’s of this world and see how they are taking advantage of an Australian market that is too slow to adapt.

What will be interesting to me is how a place like Amazon overcomes the current high logistical/postal/courier costs of delivering domestically as opposed to their current US model.

I saw a comment this morning that the e-commerce sector in China is 50x that of the US. Whether true or not it is plain to see how quickly it is evolving there and unless some pull their finger out they will be overtaken from all quarters.
