Amazon, Zocalo and the death of Box.com

As widely reported today Amazon officially announced Zocalo. According to the website: “Amazon Zocalo is a fully managed, secure enterprise storage and sharing service with strong administrative controls and feedback capabilities that improve user productivity.”
The Register’s take on the new disruptive AWS product highlights the potential negative effect on Box’s IPO prospects and overall business.

I agree.  Box still lacks peer to peer file sharing a critical basic functionality that has always precluded any interest that I have in either their product or company.  Does Box understand that not everyone lives in the land of unlimited Internet, even in 2014?
