Re: Amazon is the Best
It looks like Yahoo and AOL branding isn't going away, but certain things will be brought under a unified new brand. That sounds reasonable. I wonder what happens to things like Flickr and Tumblr still.

Re: Amazon is the Best
I am sure that Tim Armstrong has thought it thru--for someone to have resurrected a "has been" and parlayed it into a 4 Bill acquisition target--I won't be surprised.....

Re: Amazon is the Best
I don't quite understand the "Oath" re-branding... does that mean AOL email and Yahoo email accounts are going to change domain names? I would assume not... so how far does the "Oath" brand go? 

I'd also wonder how Oath would replace Yahoo News or other Yahoo properties that bring in eyeballs in the gazillions.... 

I can understand why the AOL branding should be dropped -- people already think of AOL as some ancient company that only grandparents use... but Yahoo is still at least somewhat still used by some younger users, no? Maybe not...

Re: Amazon is the Best
One interesting example of this transformation is what's going on over at Verizon.  During my morning"review", I saw that verizon is consolidating AOL and Yahoo into a new umbrella brand called "Oath".   That's an interesting name that I would imagine would resonate--and on top of the streaming service upcoming, fun to be witness to.....

What we all need to realize that each society has its' own set of dynamics--not withstanding our desire to be "like everyone else".    Transformation is always possible--with a human touch!!!

Re: Amazon is the Best
@vnewman I think this must be a thing that happens often with Amazon. I hadn't ready about the Pampers pricing mess, but I have read of others. It must be tough to work with Amazon in some cases.

Re: Amazon is the Best
Agree!  I feel like sheer selection is where they have everyone beat.  I can't think of much that I could not find on the site.  It's one-stop shopping at its finest.  

However, they did get into some sort of pricing squable with P&G over Pampers and suddenly the brand was removed for a time.  Seems like a "My way or the highway situation."

Re: Amazon is the Best
Canada, though, is I believe part of the G20--and I am confident that Amazon understands that--when they go after a leading E-Tailer in the Middle East (as I noted during my previous comments), I think they know they need to take care of Canada.
