The future of collaborative digital content consumption

Amazon's recent Watch Party announcement sheds light on what the future holds for digital content consumption. It's primitive, yes, but a step in the right direction. To summarize, Watch Party lets two people watch a movie together even though they're not in the same location. The first version limits interactions to texts and emojis but you can bet a future version will support video on both ends so you can make faces and feel closer together. With Alexa (and Prime) Amazon has built an incredib...

Walmart is Quietly Working on an Amazon Prime Competitor Called Walmart+ (slashdot)

Amazon Prime has devastated traditional retail. Walmart is about to fight back. From a report: When Amazon launched a funky membership program called Amazon Prime in 2005, Walmart boasted larger profits than Amazon had revenue. Fifteen years later, though, Prime is the key reason for Amazon's dominance over Walmart in online sales. That pressure has pushed the traditional retailer to burn tens of billions of dollars to fight back while its executives have cycled through various stages of reactio...

This company is helping to make shopping on Walmart.com more like Amazon (AMZN, WMT)

Walmart has made massive in-roads on e-commerce, but it still trails behind Amazon Prime in the number of items it sells with free two-day shipping. Companies like Deliverr are supercharging third-party sellers — on Walmart and on other marketplaces — by offering them a service that mimic's Amazon's own fulfillment network. The end result could be a democratization of free two-day shipping. It's no secret that customers love free two-day shipping. It's the main reason why customers love Prime...

There's new evidence that fewer people are signing up for Amazon Prime as the membership has gotten more expensive (AMZN)

There's new evidence buried in Amazon's latest earnings report that fewer people are signing up for Prime. Amazon raised the price of a Prime membership earlier this year, to $12.99 a month or $119 a year.  The way Amazon accounts for revenue from Prime subscription fees in its earnings has changed this year, which provides a look at how Prime membership has slowed down, according to analysts at Normura. Decelerating Prime growth is something to watch, as the membership is highly valuable to t...

Google And Amazon Are Harming Consumers And Behaving Like Obnoxious Toddlers

You might recall that a few years ago, Amazon began banning competing streaming hardware like Apple TV and Google’s Chromecast from the Amazon store because these products competed with Amazon’s own streaming hardware. At the time, you might also recall that Amazon offered up the historically stupid claim that this was done simply to avoid “customer confusion”: “Over the last three years, Prime Video has become an important part of Prime,” Amazon said in the e-mail. “It’s important that the stre...

Why did Amazon buy Whole Foods? World domination.

Amazon’s New Customer is a really great analysis by Ben Thompson of Amazon’s strategy and why Amazon bought Whole Foods: they purchased a new customer for Amazon infrastructure, not a retailer. Early on in the piece, Thompson lays this one on us: Amazon’s goal is to take a cut of all economic activity. No qualifiers. All economic activity. In the world. Sort of a Dutch East India Company for the internet age. Thompson explains how they’re going to do it and why fresh food is such a strategic h...

Amazon wants to get more poor people to use its paid membership program (AMZN)

Amazon wants more people to use Prime, its paid membership program that gives access to free delivery and a bunch of streaming content. But as fast as it's grown, Prime is believed to be heavily concentrated in upper-income households, essentially saturating that market. In order to keep its growth, Amazon needs to target lower-income households, which largely remains untapped so far. And according to Amazon CFO Brian Olsavsky, it's one of the reasons why it recently launched a pay-by-the-month ...
