SEATTLE – Amazon.com Inc. plans to broadcast on its Web site an original show hosted by Bill Maher and featuring performers and authors touting new releases — which, not coincidentally, will be for sale at the online retailer.

It seems that ‘multi-purposed’ companies is a natural move during business growth. But also, history shows that this move opens space for new specialized business, for specific niches. Maybe, on some near future, a company that “just sell books” will become the next hype…
Maher? I coulda sworn it was Dennis Miller.
The growth of today big companies isn´t holding back, so every companie can sell everything one day and earn a lot of recognition *g*.
How lame that they’re only streaming it, though.
