THE WORLD OF AMAZON
Amazon’s first quarter earnings report last week presented analysts and investors with a financial mystery.The company’s profits were much higher than expected, almost double its operating margin from the previous year. But its guidance for the second quarter’s results suggests that the company will be spending a lot more on … something.But what, exactly?“We’re currently working on evolving our Prime free two-day shipping program to be a free one-day shipping program,” Amazon’s chief financial officer Brian Olsavsky revealed on the conference call. “We’re able to do this because we’ve spent 20 plus years expanding our fulfillment and logistics network, but this is still a big investment and a lot of work to do ahead of us.”Amazon Shifting Its Core Shipping Benefit To One-Day DeliveryAnd, related humor, appropriate as we head into the Humor section of this week’s issue, here’s a funny 2-minute video ...Amazon Yesterday Shipping
A woman and her husband were dressed and ready to go out for a lovely evening of dinner and a movie. Having been burgled in the past, they turned on a ‘night light’ and the answering machine, then put the cat in the backyard.When the cab arrived, they walked out the front door and their rather tubby cat scooted between their legs back inside, then ran up the stairs.They didn’t want to leave the cat unchaperoned, so the husband ran inside to retrieve her and put her in the backyard again. The woman went to hold the cab.She didn't want the taxi driver to know their house was going to be empty all evening, so she explained to him that her husband would be out momentarily as he was just bidding goodnight to her mother.A few minutes later he got into the cab all hot and bothered, and said as the cab pulled away:“Sorry it took so long but she was hiding under the bed and I had to poke her with a coat hanger to get her to come out! She tried to take off so I grabbed her and wrapped her in a blanket so she wouldn't scratch me like she did last time. But it worked! Then I hauled her down the stairs and threw her into the backyard. Don’t worry; she won’t be getting back in while we’re gone.”
