Amazon made video games for its workers to reduce tedium of warehouse jobs
The games are voluntary and have been deployed at five Amazon warehouses.

Playing the games is voluntary. No images of the games were revealed, but the Post said the games have names such as "MissionRacer, PicksInSpace, Dragon Duel, and CastleCrafter" and "have simple graphics akin to early Nintendo games like Super Mario Bros." Workers described the games to the Post on condition of anonymity.

Almost as good as Tesla's worker incentives.

There's a business growing within Amazon that could one day be worth more than retail or cloud
https://www.cnbc.com/2019/03/19/amazon-business-could-be-worth-more-than-core-retail-e-commerce.html

"Amazon Business is just beginning to establish itself, Bank of America projects there is a total addressable market for e-commerce B2B of $1.4 trillion by 2021, which is nearly double the firm's estimated $761 billion market for consumer e-commerce. Essentially, the market potential for Amazon Business is about twice the potential for its core retail business."

I'm surprised they took so long to get into this. I feel like its even lower hanging fruit than e-commerce. B2B has horribly uncompetitive and non-transparent pricing.

AmazonSupply launched in 2012. Since relaunched as Amazon Business.

Why Does Google Know Everything You’ve Bought on Amazon for the Past Six Years?

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/04/opinion/google-purchases.html

So google ad execs can make a case to their clients that they do not need to use Amazon ad platform as google already has a lot of that info!
