"Google Photos Backup, will no longer be supported after May 12, 2018". Now what? : DataHoarder
see comment by vaderaintmydaddy:
"I finally gave up on google photos/drive/sync/whatever. To much to deal with - are these going to be compressed, do I need to go to google photos or google drive or...and the sync and backup switch was frustrating as you mentioned. Tried out Amazon prime photos - everything goes up uncompressed, unlimited storage, solid apps for the phones, it just works. Did struggle a little uploading everything, had to restart the uploader a few times as it seemed to lock up, but I was uploading a decade worth of pictures. Been seemless since. Doesn't have the bells and whistles that google is doing with photos, like stories and creations etc...but I haven't had to fight anything. Photos upload off the phone to the cloud and sync down to my amazon drive folder on my pc. If you have prime, it's free."

Might be worth forgetting about Google Photos and using Amazon Photos instead.

What to Do With Amazon Packages You Didn't Order
"If you don’t know the recipient, well, Amazon gave you a present. According to the Federal Trade Commission, any merchandise mailed to you that you did not order may be legally kept as a free gift. That goes for Amazon or any other retailer who ships goods, and includes any incorrect items mailed to your address, even if the package is correctly addressed to you."

Amazon reviews scam? Couple who keep getting mystery packages fear they are next victims | Fox News
If you start getting random cheap products from Amazon, it could be a scam where a seller ships things to random addresses and then writes reviews about that item to pump up their Amazon review score.

You, as the recipient will not be hurt or scammed, but may still want to report it to Amazon so they can put a stop to it.

This was happening at Rock'n' Joe in mid-thru-late 2017.

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.
