"Even though the online retailer was burned badly playing the venture game, [Amazon.com] is still on the prowl for investment opportunities. But this time the deals are nowhere near as high-profile (in some cases Amazon.com doesn’t even announce them). And they also don’t come with hefty price tags. In the past three months, Amazon.com has bought assets of failed e-tailers such a Egghead.com and OurHouse.com. Last week, it signed an agreement to receive visitor traffic from San Francisco-based Switchouse, a defunct online swapping service for consumer goods."
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
