    I couldn't find this article online, so am copying it from the San Francisco Chronicle of Dec 27 (from Bloomberg News):

    Quote: Inc., the world's biggest Internet retailer, said this holiday season was its busiest ever as it added sporting goods, gourmet foods, jewelry and health shops to expand its merchandise selection.
    A single-day record of more than 2.1 million units ordered, or a rate of 24 items per second, was set during this holiday season, said.
    The Seattle company is forecasting record fourth-quarter revenue and may have its first profitable year as chief executive Jeff Bezos added new shops for the holidays and gave customers more time to qualify for free shipping. said it shipped more than 1 million packages on its peak shipping day and sold more than 70,000 gift certificates on Dec. 24. The Web merchant said it shipped more than 99 percent of its orders on time.

    No doubt helped hugely by the last google update that gave Amazons pages a huge boost, just before the start of the Christmas shopping season.

    This is the update that has badly hit a lot of affiliates and smaller online retailers.
