Amazon celebrate 20 years in business this July

No primary category set

Having been founded in 1994 as Cadabra (the name didn’t catch on), Amazon celebrates 20 years in business this month!

There’s a lot we could say about the past twenty years, but the guys at DPFOC have done the work for us. Here’s their Amazon Birthday fast facts infographic:

  1. WOW, JB should take up comedy, he’s not short of “one-liners” and if you don’t like his quotes at least his laugh will crack you up!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I actually don’t find him at all funny and his laugh irratates like a monopoly designed to put many small retailers out of business (think of salt on a wound).

    The “breakfast octopus” must be some kind of “inside Amazon” joke as I don’t know of anyone who has any clue what that was about. I wouldn’t be suprised if it was actually some kind of deliberate ploy to gain coloum inches. All it really did is make him look stupid.

    I just wish that I was rich enough to be in a helicopter crash!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Apparently it was some sort of analogy but that theory seems very high-brow to me.

    As regards his “laugh”, do people laugh with him or at him?

    Amazon employees are obvioulsy excused from answering, i’m sure they find him very “funny”! ๐Ÿ™‚
