For this week, we'll be sharing these stories with you.
VIDEO SEARCH ADS ON AMAZON
Video search ads are already on Amazon.
But there's a beta program coming to make buying them easier.
This is old news on other eCommerce platforms like Taobao in China.
They actually are 10 steps ahead, and provide live, interactive video, for their big brands. It is an expected part of customer service there.
This is just the very beginning of video coming into the western eCommerce world.

AMAZON's NEW PRIME AIR HUB
Amazon is really a logistics company. It's just wrapped up in an easy to use consumer package.
Like juice in a tetra pack drinking box. You buy it for the juice, but its really all about delivery.
Amazon this week, broke ground on a large air hub near Cincinnati. It has a 50 year lease on 900 acres of land there. And it can support about 100 planes.
There's a lot more of where this came from. Last week we mentioned their Uber for trucks. And how they're going after sea shipping in a big way.
The global shipping industry is an old, tangled mess that works despite itself.
Amazon is just getting started. We will be able to buy/sell anything, from any country, delivered within a day or two. Without thinking about all the ships, trucks, planes and borders like we do now. Can't wait!
