    Good! Amazon is so huge & efficient that it is approaching the status of a monopoly. A viable competitor will be wonderful for consumers. Next, Walmart needs to hire someone who knows how to design a website that, like Amazon's site, makes buying a more user-friendly, pleasant experience & doesn't load up every page with eye candy & useless animations.

    I actually think Amazon's site looks like crap, it's bloated as hell. But yes, it could use some serious competition.
