Amazon has been plotting its next big move to control its ever-evolving logistics chain, with a new service called "Shipping with Amazon" in the works and reportedly scheduled to launch within weeks. It initially will pick up goods from third-party sellers that already work with Amazon and deliver them to customers. The service eventually will expand to merchants that currently do not work with Amazon. It will launch in Los Angeles and expand to other U.S. cities over time, and reportedly will undercut UPS and FedEx on price.

Curious to know how Amazon plans to undercut both UPS and FEDEX. Obviously they are the top players of small packages in North America. We could see an unprecedented agreement between all three that will be a win-win-win situation. This could drive Amazon sales even higher (if you can imagine that even being possible!). I am for one will paying close attention to see how this all unfolds.

How do you feel about accidents that occur when self-driving vehicles are being tested?
Self-driving vehicles should be banned -- one death is one too many.
Autonomous vehicles could save thousands of lives -- the tests should continue.
Companies with bad safety records should have to stop testing.
Accidents happen -- we should investigate and learn from them.
The tests are pointless -- most people will never trust software and sensors.
Most injuries and fatalities in self-driving auto tests are due to human error.
