André Staltz - The Web began dying in 2014, here's how
predictions, obsolete-discontinued-abandoned = "The Web may die like most other technologies do: simply by becoming less attractive than newer technologies. And like most obsolete technologies, they don’t suddenly disappear, neither do they disappear completely. You can still buy a Walkman and listen to a tape with it, but the technology has nevertheless lost its collective relevance. The Web’s death will come as a gradual decay of its necessity, not as a dramatic loss."

How to Get Amazon 7-Day Price Protection on Everything They Sell
"I was always under the impression that the item had to be sold directly by “Amazon.com LLC” to qualify for price protection. I recently discovered this is NOT the case and the only requirement is “order fulfillment” by Amazon. Pretty much every product that qualifies for Prime 2-day shipping is fulfilled by Amazon these days. Many of which are sold be 3rd party sellers, but have order fulfillment by Amazon."

Amazon to Raise Fees as Revenue Disappoints - NYTimes.com
Amazon up 22% vs Walmart's 2% - and Wall Street is still disappointed. This is what I hate about capitalism. You have a profitable business, great customer sentiment, people have jobs... and Wall St wants more. More. More. More. .................................... I don't care so much that Prime is going to go up or shipping fees will rise a bit. It just pisses me off that it's never enough. .................... See the story about Apple bookmarked right after this one. Same thing. Record number of iPads shipped... Wall Street hangs it's head. ........................ I forgot who said it, but this is fitting "Growth for the sake of growth is the philosophy of cancer cells." ...................... We have to get off the crack addiction.

What Apple's Ebook Fiasco Means for Amazon and the Book Business
strategy = “Amazon has a history of operating at a loss,” says Paul Levinson, a professor of communication and media studies at Fordham University and author of the book New New Media. “Back in the 1990s, year after year, they would operate at a huge loss and they would say, ‘We’re succeeding. This is part of the master plan to get people accustomed to online shopping.’ Whenever you’re trying to break a decades-old trend, you have to do unusual things in terms of business. People’s habits run very deep.”

Why I Sold Zappos
Make sure to read to the end where he talks about the company tracking and attempting to strengthen inter-departmental friendships. I can see this being very useful because techs at AnySystem used to "who gives a shit" when they gave bad service to a customer, rather than caring that they were making Jean's job in sales harder to do.
Very interesting.

Free Reading Apps
business-model = never thought of this -- build a hardware device, sell it... but give the software that enables people to buy apps for it, away for free -- good because people don't have to buy your hardware device, but if they download your app, it enables them to use their hardware to buy your (in this case) ebooks --------------> This is sort of the reverse of what Boxee did --- they started with a free software product and are now building a hardware device with Netgear or whoever, that they will sell which makes it easy for people who don't want to build their own Boxee box and all the trouble that itmight entail to build a small PC, install an OS, etc, etc.
