Do you know who is the richest man in the world today?

Tonight I watched the news from TV and it is a little surprise for me to learn that this year the richest man in the world is Jeff Bezos. He is the founder of Amazon.com which is a very popular selling website today. Bill Gates ranks secondly this year. The technology field really creates a lot of super rich men.

I did know that. He does ruin towns when Amazon comes in and employees are not treated fairly.
Amazon effectively tries to turn humans in their warehouses into robots.

@youless I think it might be a warehouse or something. I know they were talking about Amazon being available in Australia but you've always been able to buy stuff from Amazon. I'm not sure of the details as I rarely shop online.

@youless Also over here they have a bad habit of charging you twice and you have a heck of a game to get them to pay you back. They say you opted to be a Premium member even when you did nothing of the sort. As there was no receipt to say anything about Premium we got the second lot of money back but only after insisting and we stopped buying anything from them again. Its a great pity that kind of thing goes on as it would be so easy to do good business. Maybe they have pulled their socks up a bit and started to bother about customers who are always the first most important in any business.

@youless I think that they are more careful now as there have been numerous complaints about all that and rather than lose customers they are coming more into line like they should do. Good job you were careful also so as not to lose your money.
My friend left for the United States about two years ago, and Haza Alino visited us not long ago and told us about the whole Amazon industry. It's cool. We do not have shipments to Amazon, so we enjoy the Mali Express and eBay that are still bought at Amazon.
