Amazon beats out FedEx, UPS and the U.S. Postal Service to become its own biggest shipper - Axios

www.axios.com

Mike: Amazon is now shipping ~half of all of the products sold at Amazon. This means that they are shipping 20% of all ecommerce sales.

Why should you care? Once they hit 60% or their own shipping, their sites will (or already have?) turned to targets outside of their normal stomping ground putting them in ever more direct competition with UPS, USPS and FedEx causing turmoil in that field.

searchengineland.com

Mike: Yelp is looking to monetize ever more of their business dashboard, often with penny ante types of features.

Yelp, in their slowing growth, is under increasing pressure to increase income. This sort of BS is only likely to alienate more of the SMBs they need to survive.

GrubHub is buying up thousands of restaurant web addresses. That means Mom and Pop can't own their slice of the internet | New Food Economy

newfoodeconomy.org

Mike: We have seen this sort of play before and it is often a desperate attempt to capture income from Google search. 

Ordering and delivery companies like GrubHub offer a valuable service. They can also be blood sucking rentiers taking $$$ that would have should have flowed naturally to the business via a brand search. I think this is the latter.
