Tech That Disrupts Our Lives for the Better

Shopping

Even when Amazon (AMZN - Get Report) was a young etailer selling primarily books, it changed the way many people bought books. Today, it's the Goliath who doesn't seem to care too much about the little punks who throw stones. Amazon didn't rest with changing the way we shop or be content with how a retailer should operate. It now makes hardware, it offers businesses a plethora of web services, and it helps other retailers sell their goods and authors to self-publish books.

More recently, Amazon began producing original movies and shows. And it expanded its test market for delivering fresh groceries like meat and vegetables. Evidently, the company knows there are plenty of markets that are ready for something new.
