I’m not surprised that Jeff Bezos is moving to a different position in his company. What he’s been doing for the last decade is setting up a system. He is working on a thousand year plan here (he thinks he’s going to live forever through transhumanism).
I am actually surprised that he had the nerve to appoint a heterosexual white male as his successor in the CEO role. It’s incredible, actually.
Apple tried to pander to the optics and put a homo in place after Jobs died, and he has already destroyed the company (though apparently no one on Wall Street knows it yet).
This is a bit scary, actually. It’s a bit like Bill Gates coming out and talking to us like we’re school children and he’s the big boss. It shows that Bezos doesn’t feel any need to appease the mob. He’ll fly the anal flag and cheer black rioters, but his politics stop where his actual agenda begins.[Post-publishing note: there is some question as to whether Jassy is actually Jewish. That matter isn’t clear, but some have suggested he is. If he is Jewish, not having it in his Wikipedia effectively makes him crypto. I was not able to find any definitive information on this through search, and I had looked it up at other times when the media was discussing him as potential successor. Either way, the optics are the same, as when Jews are in positions of power they are always “white men.” See: recent article about Jew woman claiming Bernie Sanders has “white privielge.”]
Contrary to how some of the media is covering this, Bezos is not resigning.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos will leave his post later this year, turning the helm over to the company’s top cloud executive, Andy Jassy, according to an announcement Tuesday. Bezos will transition to executive chairman of Amazon’s board.
Bezos, 57, founded Amazon in 1994 and has since morphed the one-time online bookstore into a mega-retailer with global reach in a slew of different categories from gadgets to groceries to streaming. Amazon surpassed a $1 trillion market cap under Bezos’ leadership in January of last year — it’s now worth more than $1.6 trillion.
The company had kept its succession plans quiet, though onlookers speculated that either Jassy or Jeff Wilke, CEO of Amazon’s worldwide consumer business, would be Bezos’ eventual successor. In August Amazon announced Wilke will retire in 2021. Jassy, 53, will become CEO in the third quarter.
Jassy joined Amazon in 1997 and has led Amazon’s Web Services cloud team since its inception. AWS continues to drive much of Amazon’s profit.
“I’m excited to announce that this Q3 I’ll transition to Executive Chair of the Amazon Board and Andy Jassy will become CEO,” Bezos said in a letter to employees. “In the Exec Chair role, I intend to focus my energies and attention on new products and early initiatives. Andy is well known inside the company and has been at Amazon almost as long as I have. He will be an outstanding leader, and he has my full confidence.”
Bezos said he will stay engaged in important Amazon projects but will also have more time to focus on the Bezos Earth Fund, his Blue Origin spaceship company, The Washington Post and the Amazon Day 1 Fund.
“As much as I still tap dance into the office, I’m excited about this transition,” Bezos said in his internal announcement. “Millions of customers depend on us for our services, and more than a million employees depend on us for their livelihoods. Being the CEO of Amazon is a deep responsibility, and it’s consuming. When you have a responsibility like that, it’s hard to put attention on anything else.”
AWS is the biggest cloud in the world, and it’s going to end up being an absolute monopoly on webhosting. Google will keep their own cloud department open (even though it’s failing) to give the regulators an excuse to not call Bezos a monopoly. These companies all just jack each other off like this, under the table. In actuality, we’re effectively dealing with a single company in Silicon Valley, between Google, Facebook, Twitter/Stripe and Amazon. Apple is the outsider, but basically, they’re submissive. While Facebook goes into AI and robotics, Amazon builds the cloud and Google manages the surface web, Apple is trying to figure out how to trick their customers into accepting a touch screen for a keyboard on their MacBooks.
Steve Jobs was actually a competitor, back when these things were shaking out, and if he were the head of the company, he’d be actually doing something. Probably, he would be building 5G, which currently no one is doing. I don’t know if Jobs would have had the nerve to go into neural interface, because it’s creepy. But it won’t always be. That’s obviously the logical next step for a smartphone company. Instead, the fake right-winger and fake coronavirus hoax skeptic fraud Elon Musk is making the brain chip.
Not only have they not expanded, all Apple products have gone down in quality in the last decade. The fact that Apple is the biggest company on the stock market is just literally the exact same thing as GameStop, where it’s an obsolete company. Their business plan is to slowly remove themselves from the personal computer business and make “luxury” cellphones, and hope that people will just keep buying a new phone every year, even though we reached peak smartphone in 2015.
Anyway, I don’t expect anything to change over at Amazon because Bezos is changing his role. I don’t think he’s been running the day-to-day for years now anyway, so this is just a surface level change. Bezos is probably going to move into the outer space side of this bizarre technology religious order, since Cardinal Elon just keeps blowing up these rockets.
“Go manage the brain chip company Elon, you moron. That requires no management at all. It’s just a bunch of applied science nerds sitting around and working out the implementation of research that’s already been done. Just smoke weed, tweet and play video games. Hang out with your girlfriend. The only thing you have to do is hand out checks to the people doing the work. Do you think you can handle that, Elon? Can you hand out checks to members of your team?”
These people are all very weird.
Why is Jeff Bezos on steroids?
Maybe it’s just a TRT thing that got out of control somehow. But he seems to be living out some sort of teenage fantasy in his sixties.
The problem with that theory is that he’s got a really old Mexican maid girlfriend with a freakish plastic surgery face.
Imagine, you’re the most powerful man in the world. You’ve just gotten a divorce.
And you decide to date this bitch:
I can totally understand, and support, staying with the wife of your youth. I also understand if that bitch wants to rob you, there is nothing you can do, no matter how rich you are. I do not understand getting a girlfriend, unless you want to have more kids.
There are a lot of questions about that, but it pretty well quashes the “teenage fantasy” theory of his steroid use.
We’ve seen a billionaire nerd do a teenage fantasy in his sixties and it looked exactly as you would expect it would look.
Bezos’ motivation is something inexplicable.
