I Think Amazon Is Just Trolling Us All, Now

bezosI like to poke a bit of good-natured fun at Amazon, for doing things like being all jerky and offering coupons for people who scan items in someone else’s store, the buying it from Amazon, or for yanking books by people arguing with, or trying to patent reselling used electrons.  I mainly do it because Amazon is such an enormous, fat, juicy target, of course.

But lately, between hiring folks with neo-nazi ties to keep German warehouse workers in line, and trying to gain control of the very “.book” domain itself, I think it is pretty clear that Jeff Bezos is just funnin’ us all.  Which makes a certain amount of sense, I suppose.  If you’ve got a massive organization bordering on monopsony that is somehow still not actually making any money, what else could it be for but a whacky joke machine?

Either that, or it is simply there to create the resources that can be used to track down historic rocket engines.

  1. German security guards treating foreign worker poorly?
    Surprising seeing as how the Germans are such a kind, compassionate people.

    • Interestingly, I’ve heard from a friend who worked in their warehouses in the US that it was fairly grim here as well. As far as I know, though, the security folk pushing everyone around didn’t wear clothes with neo-nazi ties. So that’s something.
