The Power and Vision

gnome-systemFrom the very beginning, Amazon (aka the Bezos) was focused and determined on turning a weird computer-based bookseller into a monopolistic commercial power with global control.

Alex Shephard writes in the New Republic why having 100 million Prime subscribers means so much for Amazon and the world. (I have a hard time believing 2/3 of American households have Prime, but I guess that may just prove that I’m a disgusting communist Luddite… or that I don’t buy enough garbage on the internet to justify paying $99/yr to get things faster.)

Great job, Jeff. Enjoy your non-critical news coverage because Trump says mean things about your newspaper. (Also, don’t shut off my affiliate links! Thank you!)
