City of Industry-based online retailer Newegg said Monday that it has begun testing same-day delivery in Los Angeles, allowing consumers to order electronics and other items from the company by 11 a.m., for delivery before 6 p.m. NewEgg said that it will start delivery in "select communities" in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. According to NewEgg, if the same day delivery goes well, it plans to expand the service into new delivery areas....
And today, we’re proud to announce our latest solution to satisfy online shoppers’ needs: same-day delivery service.
“Testing same-day delivery for our LA-based customers is something we’ve been excited about for many months. If all goes as planned, we will expand into new delivery areas.”

I talked about how awesome my recent Newegg purchase experience was (here) now it sounds like it could get even better. Same day? That's pretty cool, but of course you do pay for that coolness. Still, if you've got to have it today... :)
