What's good for shopping is good for Amazon.

VBeat has an interview with Thomas Kelly, enterprise architect for cloud services at Best Buy:
(November 30, 2011) - Today, Best Buy runs a hybrid cloud with best-of-breed applications and IT governance in place. It also leverages the entire suite of Amazon data products, and even encourages programmers to experiment with new technologies

“Anything without governance becomes a failure potential,” Kelly said. Best Buy manages enormous amounts of data, undertakes hundreds of new IT projects each year and is responsible for continuous lifecycle management, which makes governance a must, he said.
 Amazon is essentially a "shopping cloud" with Kindle Fire as a front end. Soon, no matter where you shop, the chances are your order will be executed by Amazon's servers.
