retail news in context, analysis with attitude

...with brief, occasional, italicized and sometimes gratuitous commentary…

Seeking Alpha reports that Amazon is said to be developing a mobile application "to crowdsource the delivery of packages to non-employees for a fee.

"Details on timing and how the packages would be stored with retailers haven't been worked out yet by the company."

I hate the idea of Amazon doing this. It seems like a bad combination of Uber and Instacart ... and exactly who do we blame if there is something flawed in the delivery process.
