      I am a fan of Amazon Music after Alexa is integrated in it. “Alexa play me sex songs”

      > throw shit and see what sticks

      And that’s not far from what we do. We release fast and early and learn from customer behavior to shape the product, rather than spend years building something no one wants (the lessons from FirePhone).

      This is actually one of the reasons of Amazon’s success.

      Amazon music isn’t great but it’s serviceable. Amazon video is actually pretty great. Chime is awful.

      I really like amazon music unlimited. It has more music that I like than google play dud so I switched services. It’s got a little bit of work to go for categorizing music but overall it’s good for me.

      Yeah that’s true. It’s only worse than Spotify. Better than Play Music IMO

      Why do so many people seem to dig on chime? What’s wrong with it? It’s worked pretty well for me... bad audio quality sometimes, but no worse than my cell phone provider

      I think Spotify is missing Alexa. AI is huge for amazon music

      I use Spotify premium and as soon as I got hooked to Alexa from Amazon music, I left everything else except Amazon Music which is also cheaper than Spotify. Alexa is my personal DJ and recognizes what I say even in noisy situations.
      Amazon folks I hail you and your leader!!

    Why do we need to be into anything that doesn’t benefit our customers ? Let Uber do it. Uber’ is

    Or it can always make an offer to buy

      Nah we pass. I know what both companies do and how, and I think while Uber has a very slick customer facing experience, Amazon’s backend logistics tech, while a bit clunky for edge cases, is pretty advanced and has the ability to adapt to our existing businesses (1-hr delivery, scheduled delivery, etc).

      Still day 1 but I think build wins in the buy vs build decision at this point.

      Apple may be better off buying Uber. At least their maps will work.
