Marketing / Re: AMZ Prime Day is getting more press that Black Friday

I'm staying away.  I'm on the slippery slope of smarthome stuff and all is well as-is. (I have a cheap DIY Alexa switch module project in mind. Don't tell Bezos.)

I suspect a lot of people have. G Maps blocks out the sun now.  But for developers, the G api key limits were too limited for, say, a broad, popular resort network.  And GM leads your traffic off-site.

*IF* you're using OSM at the street address level rather than a mile-high 'general info' view, I'd suggest spot-checking the important addresses. There used to be some holes --though I suspect they're filled in by now.

OSM has been around long enough to trust it when building content. When I first heard of it some years ago, it was sketchy.  I think the general concern that Big G is taking over the world has served to push more development.

Marketing / AMZ Prime Day is getting more press that Black Friday

On my feeds, PD has been roaring for a week now. Debbie says it's bigger than Black Friday now --at least in the media.  Amz is certainly getting billions of $$$ in free press.

First generation wealth, yeah. Second gen, maybe. After that, not a chance.

There was a movie -2012- in which the world's billionaires paid to have 4 hi-tech arks built to save them from the apocalyptic floods.  In the end, 3 arks made it to a small island.  Other than the massive plot holes, my thoughts at the end:

(A)  They bought along crew/servants to pilot/handle/maintain the arks. What's going to keep the crew subservient now that the billionaires' wealth is no longer a factor?

(B)  They're f###ed. What do billionaires know about the hard, bone-breaking work of subsistence living?

>officially summer again, which we now call the Nervous Season


Yeah, sorry. I was wondering about you when I recently filtered "wildfire" from my feeds.  From the east, it looks like everything west of Missouri is burning.

In second place isn't Walmart, like some might expect, but eBay, according to eMarketer's research. EBay is expected to end the year with about 6.6 percent of the U.S. e-commerce market, Apple with 3.9 percent and Walmart with 3.7 percent. Next in line are Home Depot, Best Buy, QVC Group, Macy's, Costco and Wayfair.

Also striking is the fact that Amazon's marketplace is exploding the marketplace refers to transactions that take place via third-party sellers, instead of a shopper buying one of Amazon's in-house brands.

Sales generated from the marketplace will be more than double Amazon's direct sales in the U.S. by the end of the year, eMarketer said. By 2019, marketplace sales are forecast by the firm to be more than 70 percent of Amazon's overall e-commerce business.[/quote]

Logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Spock, Wrath Of Khan 

You have to do bulk-handling to meet the needs of vast populations, I'm afraid.
