We will ship it before you know you want it

This is an interesting development:

Amazon has filed a patent for “anticipatory package shipping,” a system that predicts what a customer will buy and sends items to the closest warehouse near that shoppers shipping address. The goal of the system is to send items to shipping hubs in areas where it believes they will sell well, which leads to shorter delivery times.
