They don’t have free food, no happy hours, no beers on fridays, no unlimited bus pass, and nothing like Seattle has. Are they so poor ? Why ?

      A9 in Palo Alto had pretty good snacks and drinks by the time I left. They had coconut water and healthy snacks.

      Much of AWS in Blackfoot has free snacks and beer+pizza Fridays and waffle Monday’s. Many teams also have a company paid team lunch once a weeks or every 2 weeks.

      So to summarize, no. Seattle does not get free meals.

      For the record it will be apple then google the amzn.

      Look at the market caps. Amzn is around half trillion, been around for 20 years.

      By market map, its Apple (800bn), G (670bn), MSFT(610bn) then Amazon/FB.

      Amazon is growing faster than the rest.

    There is a Bay Area pass. Drawing a blank on what it is called, but similar to Orca card.

    At ~300 bux for Kindle Oasis, you'd think they have high margins.
