    Geek Wire ^ | June 25, 2018 | Monica Nickelsburg
    In Amazon’s remarkable second headquarters competition, talent is the name of the game. That’s why we want to find out which city in the running for Amazon HQ2 has the best chances of attracting people like our talented GeekWire readers. One of Amazon’s chief considerations in picking a location for its second headquarters is the ability to attract and retain the valuable tech workers who power the e-commerce giant’s business. Tech companies compete fiercely for a relatively small pool of skilled talent and Amazon wants to place HQ2 in a city that will help it gain a recruiting edge. Last...

Speaking at the Space Development Conference in Los Angeles over the weekend, Mr Bezos made the argument that in order to protect Earth and allow the human species to continue growing, we need to move much of our industrial activity to the moon, or even asteroids. The 54-year-old billionaire said moving heavy industry into solar-powered space outposts is the only way to ensure that our planet can cope with the rising...

    Amazon originally started out many years ago selling books online. But owner Jeff Bezos has aggressively led it to now selling everything online, making Bezos one of the richest men in world history. Bezos's corporate empire includes Amazon Web Services (AWS), a leading pioneer of cloud computing services. Cloud computing enables anyone in an organization worldwide to access the organization’s documents and data online. That enables the organization’s employees to collaborate and communicate online, from anywhere in the world. America’s Defense Department is now trying to catch up to the world’s leading multinational companies to adopt cloud computing for America’s...

    This month some important Walmart news did not get the attention it deserved. The news wasn't some flashy announcement about virtual reality or about some new service for busy Manhattanites. It was something much more subtle and much more substantive. It was the hire of Valerie Casey. Google "Valerie Casey" even today and only two listings make mention of her newfound connection with Walmart on the first page of the returned search results. This amount of attention is unjustifiably slight. Let this piece then serve as the hire's coming out party. Shrewdly, Walmart has made Valerie Casey, formerly of Frog,...

    American Thinker ^ | 06/30/2018 | Ed Straker
    How much is unskilled labor worth? For liberals, you might think the answer is an astronomical $15 an hour, the minimum wage many states have set, destroying jobs that cannot provide that much value. But for libs, $15 an hour is just the starting point. The Atlantic wrote a sob story about someone who took a part time job delivering packages for Amazon for $18 an hour (which would eventually go up to $25). Her anger, and indignation, explains what is wrong about the liberal entitlement mentality. The Amazon Flex program lets workers deliver packages as independent contractors. They can...

    SEATTLE (AP) — Your Amazon packages, which usually show up in a UPS truck, an unmarked vehicle or in the hands of a mail carrier, may soon be delivered from an Amazon van. The online retailer, wanting more control over how its packages are delivered, is rolling out a program Thursday that lets entrepreneurs around the country launch businesses that deliver Amazon packages. They'll be able to lease blue vans with the Amazon logo stamped on it, buy Amazon uniforms for drivers and get support from Amazon to grow their business. In return, Amazon gets more ways to ship its...

    No fewer than 60 organizations branded "hate groups" or otherwise attacked by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) are considering legal action against the left-wing smear factory, a Christian legal nonprofit leader confirmed to PJ Media on Tuesday. He suggested that the $3 million settlement and apology the SPLC gave to Maajid Nawaz and his Quilliam Foundation on Monday would encourage further legal action. "We haven't filed anything against the SPLC, but I think a number of organizations have been considering filing lawsuits against the SPLC, because they have been doing to a lot of organizations exactly what they did...

    Don’t let your Gun get Stolen Back in April of 2018, a small import company released a new handgun safe onto the market through Amazon. The company, called Amarey, is no big player in the gun world, but its gun safe rose to #1 New Release status within two weeks, then went on to become Amazon’s bestselling handgun safe. As the guy who runs, I decided to look at Amarey’s gun safe. The handgun safe, model HFGS-089, is supposedly designed to do double-duty as a handgun safe and portable case. The blurb on the Amazon product page says: Gun...

    Google made almost all its money from ads. It was a booming business — until it wasn’t. Here’s how things looked right before the most spectacular crash the technology industry had ever seen.The crumbling of Google’s cornerstone Search was Google’s only unambiguous win, as well as its primary source of revenue, so when Amazon rapidly surpassed Google as the top product search destination, Google’s foundations began to falter. As many noted at the time, the online advertising industry experienced a major shift from search to discovery in the mid-2010s.While Google protected its monopoly on the dying search advertising market, Facebook — Google’s biggest...

    Well this is my 2nd installment in my legal battle of legendary titans: The showdown between me and Jeffrey Bozos. Just as a matter of record, are you aware that Mr. Bozos made something like 40 billion dollar last year. And I come along and asked for a paltry, measly, infinitesimally small teeny weeny, baby amount of a mere 600 dollars for their negligence and another about 4,000 for the poor business practices and he's not willing to part with a dime. Hmm, let's see. I'm not good with math but 40 billion minus 4,950 dollars = well, he's got...

    AT&T announced that it was buying Time Warner for $85.4 billion in October 2016. The Justice Department sued last year to block the merger, citing concerns that AT&T, owner of satellite television provider DirecTV, could charge rival distributors more for Time Warner content, resulting in higher prices for consumers. The outcome of the trial could have implications for future deals in the telecom and media industries, as well as vertical mergers, where companies combine with their suppliers. A federal judge said Tuesday that AT&T's $85.4 billion purchase of Time Warner is legal, clearing the path for a deal that gives...

    The Redlands resident was inside the facility, apparently at work, when he was taken into custody by an arson investigator following the Redlands Fire Department’s probe of the June 7 incident. Authorities did not release many details on the fire other than to say it broke out around 7:30 p.m. It was unclear what evidence led them to determine it was arson. Firefighters had responded to another blaze at the same location the day before, on June 6, around 9 p.m. Officials have blamed that incident on a malfunctioning solar panel. In that fire, the flames were located in the...
