While the rampant mayhem of our beloved political process has diverted everyone's attention from both ISIS and whether they should follow the Paleo...
If Jeff Bezos, the billionaire CEO of Amazon, has his way, thousands of drones could soon be hurtling through the airspace above our heads, delivering millions of packages to Amazon's customers. Instead of having to wait the eternity of a day to receive their orders, consumers could get them in 30 minutes, or less.
Amazon is conquering feats, such as exceeding $100 billion in revenue, in almost half the time compared to other companies like Walmart. The power of this ingenious company is unstoppable, even with the recent flop in the company's earnings report.
Nature and Culture's approach to conservation is a California one. Engelhorn calls it entrepreneurial. It's the way he's used to doing business, and it may be changing the way well-intentioned gringos relate to Latin America and the rest of the world.
Ultimately, Amazon will have us all so hooked and locked in that when they raise prices to turn a real profit, we will have no choice but to pay -- and pay we will for the continued convenience and efficiency of it all.
2016 was the year that VR got real at Sundance. At last year's festival, Amazon didn't buy any films. This year, they bought six. And Netflix -- which...
Yes, their teeth are sharp. Yes, they enjoy their meaty snacks. But the species of piranha discussed here are not the type to be obtained by dipping cow entrails into the water and then flinging a dozen fish to shore.
There are a lot of big problems in the world. And it could be argued that a lack of good TV shows for 6-11 year olds is not one of the more sweeping issues. But, in our little corner of that big problem-plagued world, the depictions of girlhood I am able to hand to my girls matter.
Just as one-stop shopping behemoths such as Walmart and Amazon are fulfilling the retail needs of America's consumers, larger churches are increasingly meeting the spiritual needs of America's faithful.
I would buy AMZN. I think Amazon is the most interesting company right now and represents the surest path to a $5T (15-20x from current levels) market cap within 50 years. The reason I think this has nothing to do with e-commerce, although e-commerce is their way of dogfooding the real reason: AWS.
In June 1977, before entering university, I had an unlikely epiphany. My economics teacher Mr B, an ex army major, showed a film on socio-economics which fired my imagination so much that, when I arrived at college a few months later, I changed my course from business studies to economic and social history.
As the nation celebrates Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, I'm left to ponder my own existence juxtaposed against his prophetic words on a late August day in 1963.
My crystal ball is cloudy, but I will take a bet on Netflix, and by implication Amazon, so long as they stay the course on delivering what we all want. Great shows to watch anywhere, anytime as we want to.
One of the questions we hear most often in Jocgeekville is "What happened to the 2015 Bermie Awards?" Truthfully, our panel of experts was too tired ...
Las Vegas emerges like a shimmering dream right out of the desert. Or perhaps it's more of a nightmare. It all depends upon your perspective and pre...
If you asked the people in your team to rate how meaningful they found their work, what do you think their answers would be? Perhaps, like many of the organizations I've been working with lately, it would be that they don't really feel what they do each day has much impact.
