1) not sell them
2) don't know what you mean
3) the same way as on there website
4) I think that's part of the point, it's hardly a hurdle for uber
5) yes, and 100 years ago those connotations may have been in the collective consciousness in a real way
6) haven't watched the video, but that seems like a bad idea on their part
7) by not letting you purchase and having a greeter/security stop you.

Some of these will clearly be negatives, but they're betting on convenience and price being a good trade off. They don't need to be everything to everybody, they need to be something new to enough people to cover the extra overhead of a location with space for shoppers in a more prime location than a warehouse.

The medium long run is caravans of trucks, with a few drivers, probably three, for a a 24hour driving shift and one to sit behind with a disabled truck if part of the caravan is damaged.

There's still likely going to be value to a human overseeing millions of dollars if goods.

I suspect the actual list would be C B A (for people with cable), or B A C (for those without).

It only impacted sales by 10%, and I don't see people not paying for cable paying for shows (I type this as someone that has once, but probably won't again, the price was just too steep).

There's a lot of entertainment out there, and very little of it is must watch (which I'm defining as enough people in your social circle watch it knew that you need to watch it when you can talk about it).

Until online ads get the same money per viewer as TV ads it won't really work though (and I really don't get why they don't, in theory they should be more targeted and pay more).

The worst feature I find on mobile sites is the fact that instead of paging you just keep scrolling to view items.

Then when I click on something to add to cart and click back I need to scroll for two minutes to get back where I was on the list.

Why they don't let me load all on one page, or page through the items like on desktop sites is beyond me.
