"Just as the company began to build its delivery network six years ago, a delivery van carrying Amazon packages struck a cyclist in a San Francisco suburb. The cyclist was Joy Covey, Amazon's first chief financial officer. "

It doesn't delight me to have my packages arrive so fast that it hurt people. I really could use a little less speed all around.

Another thing that pisses me off about amazon is that they make the usps deliver their (amazon's) packages on Sundays.
I no longer purchase from amazon unless I can't purchase an item anywhere else. The thing is, most everything on amazon is now more expensive than if you went to the seller directly. In the recent past, many of the products I've received from amazon have been previously used or at least opened by another customer.
So in my opinion it really doesn't make much sense to purchase from amazon anymore.
AutoFac. Nope.
