BBC TV chief warns of US threat after big-money Amazon deals | Media | The Guardian
>> iPlayer needs to become an international subscription business. and leverage the BBC brand (sought after and trusted, it's the last public crown jewl that actually can compete in a global market! Channel 4 or ITV can't. ) // “Their model is built on having global rights and we have got to respect that. They are a very smart, impressive bunch of people,” Cohen said. “The key thing we look at more and more is the impact of global competition rather than just in the UK where very big companies can distribute their content around the world. That is a very big challenge.”

Amazon’s Dash Buttons Hint at a Future of Interface-Free Shopping | Re/code
[ Amazon / Jeff's mantra, obsess over the customer and invent in the name/for the customer, dash button is just the next sensible common sense iteration of their frequent item subscription option during check-out (re-order in 1-2-3 months automatically) and their Prime Membership Subscription (free shipping) >> convenient, on-demand, frictionless, no need to think about it, nothing annoying. it's incremental, but it is an improvement. what is not incremental is printing it at your home - Star Trek replicator style, that is 3D printing - what it promises to be. ] There are a couple different ways to look at Amazon’s Dash Buttons. The first, and most obvious, is that they are a gimmick. But these buy buttons also support a shopping experience that involves almost zero interaction, whether that means browsing store shelves (IRL!) or tapping a touchscreen to browse and buy virtually.
