Cloud Computing. Available at Amazon.com Today

Nice to know I'm not the only one drooling over what Amazon's up to. Wired has a nice profile of the company in this month's issue. My favorite quote comes from Bezos commenting on getting into a commodity business like cloud computing: "Commodity businesses don't scare us ... We're experts at them. We've never had 35 or 40 percent margins like most tech companies." As a side note, I bought my first thing with Textbuyit and it was awesome. All stores are now just large Amazon showrooms.
