In December 2013, Amazon announced the Prime Air delivery-by-drone project supposed to take shipping to the next level. The company unveiled a special drone prototype that would be able to ship parcels to consumers via air, significantly decreasing wait times for certain products. However, the FDA wasn’t quite ready to approve Amazon’s bold initiative, and Amazon is yet to offer such fast shipping options to buyers.
Meanwhile, Walmart apparently wants also to be able to send you packages via drone, according to a new report. More →
Hoverboards, which self-balancing Segway-like scooters that don’t levitate are known as, are one of the hottest new products of the year. Going for as low as around $270 and all the way up to $2,000, hoverboards might be a hot Christmas gift for many people, assuming they’ll be able to find one in stores.
Last week, shares of Amazon shot up 100 points following news that the online retailer had actually (gasp!) generated a profit during its second fiscal quarter. As a result, Amazon’s market cap, for the first time in history, surpassed that of Walmart’s.

Walmart recently unveiled its new trial program aimed at taking on Amazon Prime: For $50 a year, you’ll be able to get unlimited three-day shipping for products you order through the giant retailer. This is $49 less than the $99 that Amazon Prime charges users every year for free two-day shipping and other perks, although Rather Be Shopping points out that Amazon’s deal could still deliver stronger value depending on your needs.

How annoying is it when you buy something online or in a store only to find out that it went on sale a few days later? Many stores have policies that offer to refund shoppers when this happens, but by and large, consumers don’t know about these policies or don’t bother to keep track of sale prices in order to take advantage of them.

In short, you’re crazy if you don’t sign up for this service. More →
