    Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is now the richest man in modern day history! According to Bloomberg, Bezos has a net worth of $150 billion ($55 billion more than Bill Gates). In fact, he is worth more than Gates and Larry Page (Google co-founder) combined.

    Bezos owns 16% of Amazon's shares (some of which he sold). He has also poured money into powerhouse companies such as Airbnb, Google, and Twitter.

    Amazon, which started as an online bookstore in the 90's, has expanded to products and services -- since launching. In recent times, Amazon became a key player in video and audio streaming. Now, Amazon currently holds the spot for the world's largest Internet sales company.

    It's easy to be cynical about a man who is worth that much money but I have to say Amazon provides outstanding service. Amazing to think the company started out focused on books.

    I don't see the hype behind Amazon. They're often more expensive than big box stores like Walmart. I didn't know they started out selling books. That's weird, places like Abebooks have WAY better prices on textbooks.
