That book brings back memories. I couldn’t wait for the World Radio TV Handbook (WRTH) to come out every year.

Excellent service. They delivered my order in two days. Prime is worth the cost of membership.

Amazon cut ties with Fed Ex ground and are doing most of their own deliveries. This has really hurt all of the LTL ground carriers.

Amazon is awesome. Yes, I know they drive brick-and-mortar stores out of business. But I can go to three different local stores, and not find what I want. But there it is on Amazon. And as a Prime member, I usually get it the very next day.

Do I feel guilty driving past local stores that have closed down? Yep.

I don’t know how they do it with no shipping charge.

I have orders that have come on the same day from three different carriers!

I have been with Amazon for ten years and have had only three problems. 1) did not get a delivery. Upon notification they gave an immediate refund 2) a device quit working within a few days and they sent a replacement with packaging to return the bad unit 3) they make it so easy to order I am buying more then I should :-)

That means USPS, UPS, FedEx, Amazon, etc. trucks are following each other on the same roads. Talk about the giant carbon footprint.

We see the Amazon rigs ALL over the Texas highways/biways and freeways. The delivery vans, too.

Mostly foreign looking drivers (on the big rigs)...but, we did see one old white guy driver, once :)

When you’re a company that ships billions of packages, it pays to have your own air and ground fleet.

Funny you should post this.

Just a few minutes ago, I heard beeping on my street. I peeked out the window to see an Amazon Prime van backing up in our cul de sac to make a delivery somewhere on the block. On a Sunday night no less.

...and commensurately more and more empty storefronts on main street, disappearing ‘magic mile’ shops and even empty storefronts in major US urban centers...

Retail real estate is in for a major earthquake. Replaced by those trucks and cardboard boxes.

I bet the DOT boys see a lot of revenue to be made by pulling those trucks over for inspection - constantly.

They have a distribution center across from my company’s warehouse. They must have 50 Sprinter vans running in and out in caravan.

Over the past year, it’s gotten more common to see dark gray Amazon Prime Mercedes Sprinter delivery vans (brand new ones too) than any other delivery service including FedEx and UPS. They’re everywhere here (North Carolina).

I live somewhat rurally so have never seen one.

Amazon/Bezos did a good deed for we vets last Veteran's Day by offering 1/3 off of one year Prime membership.

Their Prime van/limo has been on our Cul de Sac 3 times today. My wife want to check my temp to see if I was okay as we had no orders delivered.

We are getting more of their automatic orders with products where we can predict their useage.
