Virtual Big Boxes

Yahoo is closing its online auction site, in a move seen as indicative of the seeming futility of competing with the "Wal-Marts" of the web. The net, once seen as a place where an upstart company could quickly compete, is now dominated by a handful of behemoths who completely dominate their "big box" categories: eBay, Google, Netflix, Amazon, MySpace, iTunes, YouTube. For example, eBay currently gets 98% of all online auction business. Who will be the next big box player on the net?
