But now Amazon has a new game. Now that it has agreed to collect sales taxes, the company can legally set up warehouses right inside some of the largest metropolitan areas in the nation.

In many major metropolitan areas, Amazon delivery may actually become faster than sitting in traffic, finding parking, waiting in line, buying a product and then driving home.
