There’s no question that Amazon is one of the juggernauts when it comes to tech, online retail, and more. It seems like every time we turn around, Amazon is sticking its fingers into something else with new Amazon services. Of course, while we do get some pretty decent services from Amazon, the name of the game these days is data.
There’s no doubting Amazon’s popularity, after all, it took in an astounding amount of revenue last year and CEO Jeff Bezos has frequently been at the top of the “richest person in the world” list since October. While many use Amazon for its shopping services, their Echo devices have helped propel Amazon Alexa to its place among the most popular digital voice assistants. To further solidify that integration with your smart home, Amazon also snapped up Ring — a company that makes smart doorbells and cameras. Some of you may have heard that Amazon recently acquired Whole Foods for a whopping $13.7bn to gain a foothold in the retail grocery space. Very soon after the purchase, Amazon brought Amazon-style prices to the Whole Foods grocery chain.
Amazon also has a pretty big media offering from Amazon Music to Prime Video which offers Amazon Studio originals like The Man in the High Castle and The Grand Tour featuring Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May. And it doesn’t stop there… Amazon recently announced that they were going to be taking on FedEx and UPS in the parcel delivery space, not to mention their testing of drones for delivering Amazon packages to your doorstep as well.
Our friends over at Repairly sent over an interesting infographic that showcases some of the above points, not to mention other aspects of our lives that Amazon is interested in getting data about. Check it out below:
