Remember When…

Remember when Amazon launched as a bookstore? Remember when Amazon was simply an online retailer? Remember when there was no such thing as ebooks until Amazon launched the Kindle?

Amazon gets criticized for everything it does. The company just recently agreed to buy Whole Foods, which may bring changes to the grocer once the deal is finalized.

What I don’t understand is that there are numerous companies in different aspects of our lives. But Amazon can never escape blame for anything. The company doesn’t need me or anyone else to defend it, but I think it’s time we acknowledge that Amazon’s offerings are aren’t so bad. So it isn’t just a bookstore anymore, and that’s a good thing.

  1. I love Amazon. I think it is a great company and I don’t know what the big deal is if it is helping people.

  2. It’s a threat to a lot of vested interests – of course it’s going to get some flack. I don’t love or hate it – it’s a company that’s out to do business, not be anyone’s buddy.
