Amazon.com, record sales

Amazon.com over the holiday season saw more than 4 million orders placed in one day, with Apple's iPod and Canon's Powershot Digital Elph cameras among the top selling consumer electronics items. The company said it again had its "best ever" sales, shipping more than 99 percent of its orders in time to meet holiday deadlines internationally, according to the Associated Press. Amazon.com also sold more than 1,000 Xbox 360 game consoles in 29 seconds as part of a promotional deal, offering the media devices for one-third of the regular retail price. Top-selling DVD titles included 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest' -- which is available online via the iTunes Music Store for purchase and download -- as well as several book titles such as Barack Obama's 'The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream."

    I ordered a lot more from amazon this year, so I guess I'm a part of this story. They are simple, fairly priced, and well-stocked.
