I do buy from Amazon and pay for Prime too. Even if they carry many carefully curated items I find myself buying many things through eBay because of the thousands of speciality sellers who run entire shops and use normal shipping services. Amazon carries every imaginable cable for smartphones but for metal thermostatically controlled bathroom towel warmers for example eBay would have a hundred times more products from more reliable sellers than Amazon.

When you order, it's not just a choice of Prime one-day, you can still check a box at checkout and get it slower, about 2-3 days for a certain credit. What they are looking at is the speed of cycling the cash and inventory. Inventory out is less inventory carried. Paying Chase by using available points pays Chase early in the cycle instead of waiting for the due date.

Yesterday approaching the checkout, Amazon introduced me to Key, and asked if I want it delivered inside or in my trunk or in my car (if you've signed up). To entice me they offered $10 the first time I use Key. I could have had it delivered to Whole Foods to a locker, or to a nearby 7-11 who also has lockers. I let it come in front, so I can observe the pollution impact and efficiency of dropping 2 items (it's probably going to be on separate days). There are many expanded delivery points, all reducing road congestion but also helping to fill this capacity for deliveries, and lowering their cost to deliver from what it used to be through UPS.

Amazon Rolls Out Quantum-Computing Service

2:40 PM ET

Amazon.com's cloud-services division is offering select enterprise customers the ability to experiment with early-stage quantum-computing services over the cloud, following other companies racing to commercialize the emerging technology.

Amazon Web Services Inc. said the new service, Amazon Braket, is "in preview" as of Monday. The platform lets enterprise customers explore how they could benefit from quantum computers by developing and testing quantum algorithms in simulations. Clients will also have access to different early-stage quantum-computing hardware from providers including D-Wave Systems Inc., IonQ Inc. and Rigetti Computing.

"Customers are asking for ways to experiment with quantum computers and explore the technology's potential," Charlie Bell, a senior vice president at AWS, said in a statement.

Braket refers to "bra-ket," a standard notation for describing quantum states. The service is expected to launch to all customers in 2020.

The tech giant joins Microsoft Corp., Alphabet Inc.'s Google and International Business Machines Corp. in announcing quantum-computing efforts. Microsoft and IBM are also allowing companies to experiment with quantum-computing hardware over their respective clouds.

Amazon and Facebook are loading up on new office space in New York City, helping fuel an expansion of tech companies that is remaking a swath of Manhattan less than a year after Amazon dropped plans to build its second headquarters in the city.
