Last year, Amazon.com bought shoe-retailer and customer service-centric Zappos for $900 million.
This year, like many of us, they spent a little less on their next big acquisition--a $540 million deal for Diapers.com.
Quite a threesome of strong domain names.
From The New York Times:
The acquisition suggests how far Amazon will go to maintain its edge in many corners of e-commerce, including sales of bulky household items for which it competes against Walmart.com and online drugstores.
