Amazon, and America’s Real Divide
Duanne Johnson 11/12/2018 9:56:37 AM

This is a fascinating article on #Amazon. But isn't possible you are reading too into this decision? Perhaps those cities simply made the best offer and provided the most perks in the form of tax breaks, etc. $AMZN

Ebay Sues Amazon Claiming Illegal And Unethical Activity
Ayelet Wolf 10/18/2018 5:16:43 PM

Unethical... sure. But illegal? How is it illegal that #Amazon exploited some weaknesses in the #eBay system? Violating a website's terms of use is grounds for being suspended or kicked off that site, but you can't go to jail for it. How can eBay claim this is illegal behavior? $AMZN $EBAY

Ebay Sues Amazon Claiming Illegal And Unethical Activity
Bill Johnson 10/18/2018 4:41:55 PM

Good point. And that was far from #Uber's only crime. They are probably one of the most unethical companies around. Yet they still make a bundle. Same with #Amazon. Even if they lose in court, it will likely amount to a minor slap on the wrist - a tiny percentage of the profits they reaped from this activity.

As long as the punishments are insignificant, the crimes will continue as the reward far outweighs the risk. I hope #eBay wins.

There is some truth to what Craig says. Companies always need to be wary of the competition. #eBay should either have had better safeguards in place, or even better, had they had better terms for their sellers, #Amazon would never have been able to steal them in the first place.

True. As much as I like #Amazon, they aren't exactly known as a "kind" company. They literally work their employees to death. Just google "Amazon warehouse workers" and you'll see countless sob stories of mistreatment.

David's Bridal Misses Debt Payment, Prepares To File Bankruptcy
Craig Newman 10/17/2018 9:01:55 PM

From a nostalgic aspect, I couldn't care less. But I do see tremendous danger in the elimination of competition. Before you know it, there will only be #Walmart and #Amazon left. Anyone who wants to buy or sell a product will need to do so through them.

End Of An Era - Sears Declares Bankruptcy

It's mostly #Amazon. $AMZN is absolutely wiping other companies out.

End Of An Era - Sears Declares Bankruptcy
Frank Underwood 10/16/2018 12:23:49 AM

I think it was the pension plans that killed #Sears. Newer companies like #Amazon don't have to contend with that at all. It cost Sears billions that it could have used to generate revenue. I think that more than anything else is what sealed $SHLD's fate.

Billion Dollar Unicorns: Smartsheet Delivers High Growth, But No Profits
Gil Richards 10/9/2018 4:41:35 PM

$SMAR's lack of profits doesn't concern me. #Smartsheet is still showing strong growth... it took #Amazon 8 years to make a profit!

Wellness Tech: The Evolution Of Apple Health
BreakingBad News 10/7/2018 4:38:31 PM

Yet #Amazon is the one that has made the foray into #pharma. Seems like it might have made more sense for #Apple to do that or for Amazon to have made health more of a central focus of its tech. $AAPL $AMZN

Netflix’s Race Against Time
Marcy Brown 8/16/2018 12:41:10 AM

Very well done. Though I will say that #Netflix has high customer loyalty which should be factored in. I remember when #Amazon was losing money like crazy in it's early years but look at it now.

The Star-Making Sizzle Of The Economy
Dan Jackson 8/2/2018 2:54:49 PM

Agreed. I'd say the only company that has ouysourced it's customer service abroad, yet still offers excellent customer service is #Amazon. One of the reasons I'm bullish on $AMZN. It shows you CAN have good customer service while still getting the savings from outsourcing.

Google Vs. Amazon: Choose Your Flavor
Carol D. Richards 7/20/2018 2:21:35 PM

Good article. What I find most interesting is how #Amazon and Google evolved from such different companies (Amazon a book seller vs. Google an online search engine) to going head to head in so many diverse categories. $AMZN $GOOGL

Will Small Auto Part Stores Survive Amazon?
Bruce Powers 7/2/2018 1:44:26 PM

With the exception of the cell phone, #Amazon has conquered every industry they've gotten into. I see no reason why it can't do that here as it already has tremendous related expertise and everything in place to outsell the existing leaders. $AAP, $AZO, $ORLY may very well follow in the footsteps of ToysRus. I'm very bullish on $AMZN.

Why Amazon Might Launch Its Own Cryptocurrency
David M. Green 6/11/2018 3:45:48 AM

This would be great! I'd actually trust #Amazon far more than #bitcoin, #litecoin or any of the others. $AMZN
