Problem with Amazon isn’t streaming. Streaming is an add on. People have returned to retail shopping, and Amazon’s quality reputation is in the toilet due to large amounts of continuously rebranded junk and counterfeit merchandise. It is morphing into headquartered in Seattle.

If you can even get two day shipping from prime. Most stuff takes a week’s worth of “handling” before it even gets to the shipping stage now.

Edit: I’m Not saying Amazon should crack the whip. Amazon warehouse workers are already overworked and underpaid. Just wishing they’d drop the pretense that shit’s gonna show up in two days if you pay for prime. Just call it “free shipping” and be done with it.

i'm not sure the last time i ordered something from amazon that made it here anytime within their 2 day shipping claim. anything seems to take at least 5 days

Not to mention the known conditions of their warehouses, as well as their delivery drivers.

I watch far more streaming on the service than I do shop.

If all I used Prime for was shopping I would be paying monthly for it.

That’s a good point. There are certain things I won’t buy on prime due to counterfeit products out there. Also if any review mentions damaged or weird looking or counterfeit products I’m out.

Streaming is negligible to their share price. Retail and AWS are how Amazon makes money. Bad article.

Their cloud services are what dragged the stock down. It made less profit than before.

Whether steaming makes them money or not is irrelevant if Wall Street factors that into the price which they do and they had a good quarter on the streaming side.

Their streaming service is a small enough percent that it wouldn't really be the difference maker. They make their money selling products, the TV division is one of Bezos hobbies. Same for Apple TV+.

I thought the problem for Amazon was investing billions into buying companies that have absolutely tanked and the write offs have been happening all of 2022?

That’s part of it, yeah:

Of course they did their shares were propped up by Covid and forced stay at home early on.

All these companies thought the buying habits permanently changed? It wildly unrealistic
