Amazon announced a new partnership with USPS to bring packages to consumers on Sundays as well. The program will start in New York and Los Angeles, but by 2014 Amazon hopes to expand it to Dallas, Houston, New Orleans, and Phoenix. It takes away the extra fees normally associated with Sunday shipping, and opens up new avenues of profit for Amazon. It also syncs the digital and physical worlds; in the former, everything is always available on demand, while in the latter consumers sometimes have to wait for their products for longer periods. It creates a more seamless, total interface for the self-proclaimed store for everything.
