They have a very high-margin service they can shift costs to and revenue from.

So that's how they make ends meet.
That cash cow will go dry .

Looking at the list of takeovers here
it looks to me heavy on the side of pop fluff stuff .
A tech bubble in the making ?
Or ---
if population doubles again
will we become a sit-at-home-and-type-on-the-computer-while-robots-do-the-work society as in Kurt Vonnegut's "Player Piano" ?

In a world of 98% recluses fed by the other 2% , said 98% reduced to 'Prisoner of Second Avenue' apartment dwellers
It would make sense positioning yourself to monopolize distribution .
Living where i do that seems inconceivable . But i suppose it's not to an urban IT Technophile Trillionaire who loves sitting up nights at his computer...

Walmart has built the network of not-urban local distribution centers - i'll start to worry when Amazon sets its sights on them.
