As with many things Amazon does, they're undercutting existing players with their new photo printing service.
has a good
overview in TechCrunch
, highlighting one of its competitors, Shutterfly. This is clearly a strategy to bring more people into Amazon Prime and all of its services. I was unable to find a way to upload photos without using Amazon Drive, which was kind of frustrating but understandable.

THIS is very very interesting move!! Being a long standing Prime member, I'll give it a test drive for sure. Thanks for sharing - You're faster than Amazon :)
Amazon getting started building a closed ecosystem. Smart move.
No App ?
Another example of the tech behemoths encroaching on smaller businesses with their hordes of cash and economies of scale. At this rate, I wonder if they will move into the public utilities space soon. Oh wait...

Did I hear you say 'encroaching'? Maybe you should call the tech-cops. 👮👮👮
already pointed out that it's probably a strategic move by Amazon to save one of it's key businesses. In any case, isn't competition considered a benefit of capitalism?
I'm mostly thinking of this article
and how it's increasingly difficult for the competition to reap the benefits of capitalism. ie: huge companies never getting to IPO stage (uber, etc), which prevents liquidity options for employees of said companies, and the public from benefiting from their rise.
