Will Jeff Bezos Get Half of MacKenzie Bezos’s Fortune in the Divorce?

How much do you think Jeff Bezos will get in the divorce? I haven’t heard anyone ask that. I’ve only read headlines like How Much Could MacKenzie Bezos Get? and How Much Will Jeff Bezos Lose? In the Bezos marriage, the partners are equals. Jeff and MacKenzie started the company together. And they worked side by side. When the company was big and they had four kids, MacKenzie took half the load (kids) and Jeff took half the load (work). Why do people assume Jeff will be doling out money to Mac...

"Bernie Sanders wants to punish businesses for hiring poor people."

Comments John, at Facebook, linking to "Sanders rolls out ‘Bezos Act’ that would tax companies for welfare their employees receive" (Marketwatch).ADDED: From John: "It’s called the 'Stop Bad Employers by Zeroing Out Subsidies Act,' or Stop BEZOS Act. Because politicians expressing their anger at Jeff Bezos for being the richest person in the world is more important than thinking about how our laws will actually affect the poor." But what if he's richest because middle class people are subsidizin...

The people in Amazon’s car delivery promo, ranked by how gladly we’d give them our keys

Oh that dastardly Amazon. First it upends the book industry, then it turns Bezos from a nerd into some sort of killer robot from the future, and now (in the US at least) it wants to drop loads off in your boot. No, not that, I mean, the company wants to put a package in your trunk. Damn, that’s not it either, how about: Amazon wants to put its valuables inside your things. Okay, this isn’t working. Basically, Amazon Key is a suite of services that lets delivery drivers – or friends and family – ...

Amazon finally opens up Prime Wardrobe to more customers

Amazon’s Prime Wardrobe appears to be getting ready to launch.

The service has quietly remained in an invite-only beta since last year, and Amazon claims that’s still the case. However, a recent flurry of tweets, including – ahem, those from an Amazon account and people who worked on the project – beg to differ. Jo...
