Amazon solves the local delivery problem with Lockers?

I can't claim this to be breaking news, quite the opposite in fact, but I stumbled across an Amazon Locker in Reading in the UK this week, and it was news to me! The basic idea is great - instead of having a parcel delivered to your house, you have it delivered to a Locker near you. When you are ready, enter the code Amazon sent you, and the right unit opens for you to collect your goods.
