Mike Golby: I wasn't questioning Amazons quarterly results, but simply that these mean what they were implied to mean. Reading the article cited, they appear to have well over 2 billion in accumulated losses, with 900 million on hand. To me, this means they are quite some way from being profitable, although they have (for one quarter at least) stopped losing money I think it's still a bit early to be proclaiming Mr Bezos as "right" about anything.
One tru b!x: You may be right. (I may be crazy.) But he also shits all over customisation - but only as it is (ab)used by people who think "SPAM=marketing".
