The BufferBox website now mentions (via a pop-up on the home screen)that the service will be available in San Francisco “soon”. While there was no lineage traced between it and Google’s same-day delivery, it makes sense that two delivery services owned by Google would go hand-in-hand, and it can’t be coincidence that BufferBox is coming to San Francisco.
If Google combines BufferBox with Google Fiber, can they disrupt television?
Google recently acquired a company called BufferBox. They built a service that's pretty much the same thing as Amazon's Locker. You order something online, you have it sent to a BufferBox/Locker, you get a notification saying your package is ready to be picked up, and you pick it up. Sounds simple enough, right? But what if Google was planning something a bit more ambitious?
Google buys BufferBox; think of them like a privatized post office box service
Google bought a company last Friday called BufferBox. Never heard of them? They're only two years old and they're based in Canada, so that's probably why. What exactly does BufferBox do? You know how annoying it is to order something off the internet and then have the mail guy repeatedly attempt to deliver it to your house? BufferBox fixes that by making a cabinet that can be installed in a central location.
