Not content to sell everything from video downloads to cosmetics to furniture, Amazon.com quietly rolled out a new service Wednesday called "AmazonFresh," a grocery store and home delivery site. Currently stating availability only in the Seattle area, the grocery service appears to offer similar services as such spectacular dot-com boom era failures as Webvan.com and Kozmo.com. "Welcome to AmazonFresh, the Seattle area's newest online grocery service founded by Amazon!" reads the message on the AmazonFresh site.

I don't think these guys will last long. I would question their insight and planning.

There is no customer service number to call after dealing with a jerk that shows up at 3am, is extememly noisy, wakes the neighborhood and the dogs, and then has the audacity to blame me for parking a car on my property. I tell him how large trucks have to navigate the turn around, with an installed T section, otherwise they break down the curbing. He argues with me.

I am really hacked off by these idiots and thus my post is at 3:45.

The idea is interesting but its implementation is poor.
