Amazon.com made some waves in New York City this week with the release of the Kindle Fire. And while the online retailer’s foray into tablet computers certainly was one of the biggest stories in tech last month, it was another Amazon product that really intrigued GeekWire readers.
Our stories on a set of mysterious storage lockers in a 7-Eleven store in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood captivated a worldwide audience who wondered if the project signaled an entirely new product delivery mechanism for the online retailer.
The company has yet to publicly discuss the locker project — certainly adding to the mystique. But the lockers continue to pop up in a variety of locations around Seattle.
The Amazon locker story led our list of the most read on GeekWire for the month of September. Here’s a look at the list of the top 10.
