The Internet Reacts To Amazon’s Australian Launch

Amazon finally started selling on its Australian site this morning in what turned out to be a rather underwhelming launch. Australians expected a new world of online shopping at its fingertips, and all we got was the same old stuff often at the same price or even more expensive than existing Aussie stores. Here are some of the best reactions to Amazon Australia’s launch.
