Re: The State of Amazon (scroll down) @MichaelCastello opines:
- Want to promote your website, you're up against Google.
- Want to sell your product, you're competing with Amazon.
- Want to take a place at the software table, there are Microsoft and Apple to deal with and let's not forget the power of AT&T.
- All of these corporations are beneficial to our lives but they are also some of the largest obstacles to independent start-ups and entrepreneurs. At what point should they be considered public utilities? I think we will find out in the next few years.
