Ever since Amazon helped initiate the retail apocalypse, classic stores have been going bankrupt left and right. Many of those that haven’t are still on the verge of collapse. And yet, among the ruthless demise of a dozen retailers, both Target and Walmart managed to not only survive, but adapt and grow. As far as retail was concerned, those two were the only ones managing to compete with Amazon at all, even if they were still behind the e-commerce giant by a significant extent.

Video games and everything that is required to play them are expensive. You have the console, the TV, the controllers, the games themselves, and assuming you play with friends or just like communicating with your team, you have headsets. The latter, however, can be a bit cheaper if you keep your eyes peeled for a good deal on a high quality headset. After all, budget options are usually cheap and ineffective, so you want something that does cost enough to be reliable, and right now Amazon is selling the wireless Logitech G553 headset for a great price: $70.
Mostly due to the extremely successful release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the Nintendo Switch, the long-running fighting franchise is still looking good even in 2019, with no real end in sight. It even broke EVO 2019 records by hitting the highest peak viewership that the event has ever seen in all of its days. While the game goes all the way back to the Nintendo 64, a lot of fans got their start in Super Smash Bros. Melee for the GameCube. Many of those players prefer GameCube style controllers over the Switch Pro controller, either for nostalgia or intuitiveness. That being the case, such controllers are pretty easy to find on the market, but rarely can you find them at a price as good as this.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is the current richest man in the world, yet he is still cashing out his Amazon shares at an alarming rate.

Since The Jetsons, the idea of a robot servant that cares for all of our needs has been deeply engrained in the minds of many people. And naturally, lots of companies and tech firms have tried to realize that fantasy over the years. The problem has been tackled by large tech giants like Samsung, and promising startups lead by robotic experts and AI researchers. Unfortunately, nearly all of these attempts have still ended in relative failure. Robots that can serve needs more complex than providing weather updates are still a whim of the future.
Amazon is one of the largest, wealthiest business enterprises in the world. This is mostly due to their willingness to branch out and try nearly anything. Not all of their ventures have been extremely profitable, such as the lackluster Fire Phone, but many others have been extremely fruitful, allowing Amazon to branch beyond what they originally were in e-commerce, and into B2B commerce, smart speakers, digital advertising, and cloud computing. Yes, all of these financial ventures have been very successful, but they certainly won’t be Amazon’s crowning achievement; if their next plan works out, that is.
