Amazon App Gets Part Finder Feature

For those times when you are faced with matching a fastener or screw you've never seen before and have no idea what search terms to use to find it.
Amazon will find it for you using your smartphone camera, a white surface, and a penny.

Sites were down yesterday that aren't normally down with 502 errors.

Yep, Bezos plays the long game.

Speaking to one of my son's this AM and..
Yep in his geek section of the internet... that's what they are all saying, DoS, DNS attack.
It affected the AWS area, too...that was the key he said.
It wasn't so much an attack on Amazon or it's sales as an attack on Bezos, owner of Washington Post.


Still staying in my little Amazon corner in FL and still thankful my sales were and continue to be good.
Second that!

Financial Advisor meeting last year he and I discussed the pharmaceutical deal along with how this would enable Bezos wish to partner with J. P. Morgan and Buffet for a new healthcare insurance provider.
Laying the groundwork so to speak.
First offering to employees, then to 3rd party sellers, then the public.
We discussed alot more than the above and.....

Fast forward this year.
Financial Advisor meeting to discuss yada yada yada and began to discuss how much of we talked about came true in the last year.
Let's just say what he and I discussed was 98% correct.
Whole Foods, Toys R Us, acquiring pharmaceutical companies, etc etc

In his sector, he said this acquisition is another layer moving forward.
He and my accountant don't even charge me an hourly fee to discuss Amazon (and ebay, brick and mortar vs ecommerce) with me.
Hubster sits there and enjoys listening to us throw out numbers, names, articles, etc to one another.
Not that I'm any kinda soothsayer, but I've just been doing this so very lonnnnnng. 
My views as a seller, what I've been approved for, what I've come across, what new laws are on the books and how it affects we ecommerce/brick and mortar sellers.

We have predictions for next will be interesting to see how this moves forward.
The pill pack purchase alone for FL and nursing homes/assisted livings/independent living for seniors.
Big Business!

I did that on a good portion of what's left.
And yep, sold!
Amazon and start-up Xealth are planning a pilot where doctors would 'prescribe' products to be delivered after patients leave the hospital

Amazon, Providence and Xealth are working together on a pilot which could launch in months, according to two people familiar. <-----

The idea is to "prescribe" medical products and services to patients before they're discharged. The products would be fulfilled by Amazon or another e-commerce company, and Prime members could get discounts.

That helps Amazon court a new demographic: Those with complex medical conditions, new mothers, and people recovering from common procedures and surgeries.

My sales were up 3X what they have been.
Warehouse workers were standing/sitting around as they couldn't check items shipped in, couldn't pull items, couldn't pack items...everything down.
IT workers making killer overtime.
Would love to have been a fly on the wall.
Get. It. Fixed! Now.

One of the dark rumors going around is that hackers took the site and the AWS sites down with attacks when they knew it would be at it's busiest as a message to Bezos.
Makes sense but I'll just stay in my little corner in FL and thankful my sales were really good!

I just want the cash so I can keep ordering (stuff other than DVDs of course).

The circle of life.

I was on last week and noted that a person had several LOTS of DVDs.
They are gone.
Might be an option.
Shameful those are allowed to be sold at all.

Wait a minute...
At 7:49pm, I was able to sign into buying account and successfully checked out items I had placed in my cart.

Hopefully other buyers are able to do the same.

Nyuck Nyuck.

Have tried to sign into our family buying account since 3:00...
No go!

The sales we are all losing!
I did receive email notice of items to ship (seller fulfilled).
How those buyers were even able to sign in...I don't know.

Get it together, Amazon!
I was able to get into the Amazon Seller Forums.

First posting I see: We are aware that Seller Central is experiencing intermittent login issues. If you receive an error message, please try to login again. We are working to resolve this issue quickly.

Wondering whether all those websites that Amazon hosts are up and running.

Have you considered looking into selling the DVDs as a lot?
Yep, I hear ya.
Race to the bottom.
Penny here, penny there...race to the bottom.

I've not seen any ads for Amazon except the flippin' Prime Day ads.
Guess I'm lucky!
That music on the video.
<crossing eyes>

My fav comment:
If you need tech advice from Yahoo you have bigger problems.

Seriously though, why would they even comment on this:
 'if you see a deal on a Huawei and ZTE smart phone'

Both of those smart phones have been banned from being sold at military bases due to security reasons.
Yes, I know...someone from a non-US based military base can still buy them...but why even acknowledge them in the article?

"This latest move from the Pentagon shows that the United States isn't done pushing Huawei and ZTE as far away as possible' May 18th, 2018

Tomorrow is the day.
Hopefully, this will clean out inventory that I have marked down.

Have seen quite a few tv ads for eBay.
I like the ads.
The ads I've seen are mostly for clothing...rebranding themselves.

I have lots of vintage, rare, hard to find clothing pieces I need to pictures taken.

I sold one of my husband's Brooks Brothers men's long sleeve shirts that was just hanging in the back of the closet.
I also sold 3 pieces of clothing I thrifted in plus size for a .50 a piece.
For those of you that thrift/garage sale...Plus size clothing does real well on eBay.
I sold a ROKU GR-14 remote that I found when cleaning out a like new condition.
Sold several books on eBay...Amazon charges an arm and leg to sell books now. 
I started on Amazon selling books and it was easy, peasy...not so much any longer.
I'll just put them up on eBay.

I'm approved in DVD's on Amazon, but thinking of putting what few I have left up on ebay.
