Amazon.com to sell wine online

Company's consumables division is looking to hire a senior wine buyer for its Specialty Foods Group

Amazon.com may be getting into the online wine-selling business.

According to a job posting on Amazon's Web site, the company's Consumables division is looking to hire a senior wine buyer for its Specialty Foods Group.

An Amazon spokeswoman said the company wasn't commenting beyond the ad, which was posted last Wednesday.

According to the posting, the senior buyer must have broad experience in the wine industry and will be responsible for the "acquisition of massive new product selection" and "will work to build out our entirely new selection from the ground up."

Currently Wine.com, the largest online wine seller in the US, sells food baskets, but not wine, via the Amazon Web site.

In 2005, the US Supreme Court ruled that users could buy wine over the Internet, and that individual states couldn't pass laws forbidding people from buying wine over the Internet from out-of-state wineries.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
