So it seems that Alexa is making huge losses for Amazon.
It is not that making losses is unusual for Amazon; their entire business model is based on ‘loss leading’. The problem with Alexa appears to be that the ‘loss’ wasn’t ‘leading’ to anything…
Amazon Alexa is a colossal failure - on pace to lose 10 billion this year
This is so wonderful…
@Miraz - I think I might need to learn how to embed things!!
Real time chronicle of the Space Karen debacle:
I have “defederated” (deleted) my cross-posting to Mastodon from Microblog - not because I’m not enjoying Mastodon (especially the paid hosting model at Cloudisland.nz - but because it is becoming clear that, for me, the two spaces will involve quite different types of posts.
Taking it easy on this first day of November 2022. I’m leaving Twitter, and focusing on Micro.blog (with an occasional side of Instagram). Beginning to figure out how to integrate with Mastodon NZ. #mbnov
I have a level of dependence on the new word for Microblogvember being posted before I go to sleep, but sometimes I miss it! Oh well :) #mbnov
So far, I am really, really enjoying macOS Big Sur. Installation went well, and my 2017 iMac is noticeably faster than it was before the upgrade. And the look and feel of the whole OS is much improved.
I guess I’ll give downloading and installing macOS Big Sur a go… or should I wait a few days? Hmm 🤔 #mbnov
