Reading Response 1

Based on what I have learned so far in class, I would predict that Amazon will expand bigger and unimaginable rapidly in future. Within a short time from an online book store to a website of “everything service”, Amazon has competed with all kind of businesses from retail store, book store, grocery supplier, delivery service, house cleaning service to software and database system like Amazon cloud, Kindle, Echo, Amazon Web Service, etc. We can say that, whatever we need from other businesses, we can find it from Amazon.
