CNET is reporting that my favorite online shoe vendor, Zappos.com, will be launching a new interface design that will highlight their entry into a new market: consumer electronics.
Amazon is clearly their main competitor. I'm torn. I buy most of my electronics from Amazon (with a little Newegg here and there), not just because they tend to have the lowest prices, but because the Amazon Prime shipping gets almost everything to my door in two days or less. But that's the same reason I order from Zappos: they have great prices and quick turnaround, plus great customer service. Here's hoping a little competition keeps both companies on their toes.
