[Oliver Peters] "Except sometimes lower budgets and YouTube isn't making money.


Remember the giant red ink mess that was Amazon for it's first decade plus? Now it's a different story with revenue growth above 45% in services and 18% in products in the recent reporting quarter. Huge scale capacity build-outs in response to shifting technology seems to be one of the modern games that the serious market players feel is wise. They don't always look to make money immediately - they look for position in expanding sectors so that they can make more money over a longer timeframe as society undergoes transformative change.

All the kids who are leaving network TV today may in fact come back to become tomorrows couch potatoes (deploying the Quayle "e" for nostalgia) basking in a living room screen glow just like their parents and grandparents. Or maybe not.

Funny everyone keeps noting Game of Thrones. I watched most of the first season. Thought it was very well done. Then got distracted by life and haven't seen an episode since. I expect that I'll someday watch it in my new TV consumption mode, which is to stockpile entire seasons of quality shows via either NetFlix or iTunes subscription - then consume them as wanted while I'm doing the modern life necessarily evil tasks like tromping on my treadmill. But at some point, if I end up moving to someplace where the climate is more tuned to summer outdoor walking, maybe I'll never get around to watching them at all - opting for more real hiking and less "tube" hiking.

As always, only time will tell.
