Google Inc (GOOG): The Company’s Online Shopping Heats Up, Is It An Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN) Threat?

Amazon not-so Prime?
Once Google works the kinks out of its pricing, it could have a breakthrough on its hands. A strategic alliance with Target is no small potatoes, and Google is well equipped to handle the heavy-duty shipping concerns for a company of this size, and others. Still, this company may have redefined the search engine, but Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) redefined what it means to shop. Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)’s going to have to work pretty hard to do a better job at something Amazon already does exceptionally well: same-day shipping.
