Two articles about Amazon caught my attention yesterday - both strengthen my will to invest my non-existent savings in Amazon shares. Vox makes the case that Amazon is innovating in ways very different from Google and Apple. I agree - While Google and Apple have struggled beyond their core areas, Amazon has made business successes out of completely unrelated products - the main ecommerce service, Amazon Web Services (Cloud Computing), Kindle (Devices), Amazon Echo (Home Automation). An explanation in this article. The second article is from Stratechery and has a nice primer on how the 'operating system' is the layer that dominates and makes money in a business ecosystem. It makes the case that Alexa is really Amazon's operating system for the home. Fascinating stuff! Full article here
