Amazon would move into closer competition with Apple Inc. (AAPL), which sells its own set-top box called Apple TV. The device would also compete with products from Roku Inc. and Boxee Inc., as well as gaming consoles from Microsoft Corp. and Sony Corp. that deliver video programming.

The project is being run by Malachy Moynihan, a former vice president at Cisco Systems Inc. who worked on the networking giant’s various consumer video initiatives. In the late 1980s and 1990s, Moynihan spent nine years at Apple.


“It would certainly make some sense,” said Jason Krikorian, a general partner at venture-capital firm DCM, and the former co-founder of Sling Media, who does not have knowledge of Amazon’s plans. “They have a ton of content, an existing billing relationship with millions of users.”

Jeff Bezos:「選擇塑造了我們的人生。」



每天下午,我們都會看肥皂劇,尤其是「我們的歲月」。我的祖父母參加了一個房車俱樂部,那是一群駕駛Airstream拖掛型房車的人們,他們結伴遍遊美國和加拿大。每隔幾個夏天,我也會加入他 們。我們把房車掛在祖父的小汽車後面,然後加入300餘名Airstream探險者們組成的浩蕩隊伍。















我告訴妻子MacKenzie想辭去工作,然後去做這件瘋狂的事情,很可能會失敗,因為大部分創業公司都是如此,而且我不確定那之後會發生什麼。 MacKenzie告訴我,我應該放手一搏。在我還是一個男孩兒的時候,我是車庫發明家。我曾用水泥填充的輪胎、雨傘和錫箔以及報警器製作了一個自動關門器。我一直想做一個發明家,MacKenzie支持我追隨內心的熱情。

邊度有Diablo 3買?

  1. 便利店(只有中文版,只可連結台灣伺服器,要聽普通話…
  2. Amazon(國際英文版,但連運費要$650,不划算)
  3. 銅鑼灣HMV(國際英文版,但要快手,賣晒就無)
  4. (國際英文版或中文版,但要買點數,再下載)




Amazon公佈新平板電腦Kindle Fire,很快,像「iPad殺手」、「挑戰蘋果」的標題很快會攻佔主流媒體。實情是,Kindle對Amazon而言,與其說是新產品,倒不如說是整體策略的一部分,更為貼切。基本上,就算是過去幾代的Kindle,Amazon從來都不是以銷售硬件作為主要收入,甚至需要靠補貼來出售Kindle,像Google一樣,Amazon擁有電子產品以外的主業,推出Kindle,首要目的,是要搶佔作為任何電子內容包括書籍、報章、雜誌、電影、電視以至音樂的主要銷售渠道的地位。

在設計iPad的時候,Steve Jobs思考的問題是「如何一塊平板上,重新定義和設計電腦這回事?」而在設計Kindle的時候,Jeff Bezos考慮的卻是「為了重新定義和設計資訊的發佈,我們可以做些什麼?」。換言之,iPad和Kindle要解決是斷然不同的問題。唯一的相同之處,是它們都決意改變世界的一些運作及現狀,這兩家公司,用「偉大」來形容均絕不過份。
