Does Amazon Understand Its Business Model?
This morning's paper reports that Amazon will no longer sell video-streaming products from Apple and Google. Now if Amazon were brick-and-mortar that might make sense. You might decide "oh, hell, I'm here and I might as well get this, rather than drive across town for Apple." But that's not how Internet purchasing works. Finding another product is a matter of opening another window and going to another site. I'm still sitting on the sofa. Isn't that the whole idea of Amazon?
