Re: Partnership
@dcawrey Good point. My impression of Amazon is that they tend to leverage technology they build for their own infrastructure to monetize by offering it to other companies to use. Google, on the other hand, focuses on creating products & services with the end customer in mind, with the intention of monetizing it by selling the ability to access the user demographic info they're aggregating to other businesses. The amount of power/control those two companies have combined is kind of scary to think about! So many companies & individuals rely on their services.

Re: Level 3 teaming with AWS
Hopefully that perception will develop and PAYG will become more like a pay for service model.

Perhaps more and more, people will see PAYG as a "Netflix model" instead of a discount model. So it's more of a pay for a service than a "way to cut the cord" business.

Re: Partnership
@afwriter I think the problem is that it cannot monetize email the way Google has. Amazon isn't really a leader in ads and user data. This is probably why they've never offered the service before: They know they can't compete.

Re: Partnership
It definitely wouldn't be surprising if they did, but I wonder if they don't see the benefit in it for them.

Re: Partnership
I have long thought Amazon should offer enterprises more services like email. UC is another great option, given the powerful cloud infrastructure Amazon offers. But leveraging Level 3's customer facing strategies, this could be the beginning of a fruitful partnership.

Re: Partnership
@Freehe I agree about partnerships vs M&A's. One seems to open up more opportunity, while the other seems to limit them.

Re: Level 3 teaming with AWS
That seems way more practical than the time machine solution I was thinking of.

Re: Amazon Chime
First I heard of it too! Amazon is such a great example of how the ability to take financial risks can have a positive impact on innovation.

Re: Amazon Chime
@afwriter:

You are not alone. That will make both of us.

I often keep thinking the same about Amazon and its developments and the rate it has been succeding with all their stuff.
