Does Amazon mend its mistakes quickly?
Good point, Smartron. I think Amazon is capable of making mistakes. But it does seem to learn fast and move on to the next thing. If it stays on the cutting edge of the digital economy, a lot of sheaves of ecommerce are going to fall its way.

These are amazing numbers.
I must think these are US figures. China has it own ball rolling so I wonder there is any actual point to this information. Having said that, I was inside Lab126 for a year and my take away is there really is no way Amazon can mess this up. For example, Google could see everything go to Alexa on the Echo which doesn't support browers ads. Huge swing right there that, perhaps only Amazon saw coming. Amazon learns fast, there won't be another crash and burn phone, you can be sure of that.
