By far the world’s biggest e-tailer (the next biggest is Staples, curiously), Amazon continues to climb to ever greater heights. Over the past year, Amazon has proved it can ‘do’ digital delivery. The Kindle ebook store is wide-ranging, cheap and simple to use, all of which will transfer to music and movies once the new Amazon tablets arrive. In addition, physical products are delivered reliably, with a rock-solid refunds policy. The layout and intelligence of its website is also exemplary. In short, nobody else comes close. Not even Staples.
