  1. What Cracking Open a Sonos One Tells Us About the Sonos IPO

    Comparing the innards of a Sonos One with an Amazon Echo Plus. Surprisingly fascinating.

  2. Employee #1: Amazon · The Macro

    On building the first Amazon website. (via Kottke)

  3. Global/universal short-links for your Amazon content @ BookLinker

    I’ve often thought this would be a good idea, but hadn’t looked to see who did it. (One URL for a book, which redirects user to their country’s Amazon.) I find it odd Amazon doesn’t do it. Or have a single international page for a book.

  4. This Internet Millionaire Has a New Deal For You - D Magazine

    Entertaining article about woot.com, which Amazon bought, then meh.com which woot’s founder created next. All new to me. I like the event-ness and novelty. (via Metafilter)

  5. Amazon unpacked - FT.com

    From February 2013, on the poor-quality jobs Amazon is creating and the disappointment of many local people near their Rugeley warehouse. There is, though, something to be written about people disliking Amazon’s working conditions and fondly remembering… coal mining. (via Dan W)

    Some handy tips for securing and using Amazon Web Services better. (via @simonw)

  7. kjohnston/pgbackups-archive

    Ruby app for automating offsite backups of a Heroku postgres database to Amazon S3. I was amazed that having set up the various parts the whole thing worked first time. Brilliant.

  8. Arq: Online Backup for Mac to Amazon AWS Glacier and S3 | Haystack Software

    Mac app for backing up to S3 or Glacier. Interesting, compared to Backblaze, Mozy, etc.

  9. Amazon, Apple, and the beauty of low margins — Remains of the Day

    An interesting look at Amazon’s business, low margins. stock turnover, pricing strategies, competitors, etc. (via Migurski)

  10. An Open Letter to E-Book Retailers: Let’s have a return to common sense | TeleRead

    All sensible, and all things that have put me off ebooks. But mainly for: “If the button said ‘buy now’ and I clicked on it and I paid anything remotely resembling full retail price, I should *own* the book.” Yes. Who has ever said, “I’m going to buy a license to read that book!”

  11. Luna’s Café: Typography is about reading – and so are ebooks

    There are a few reasons I’ve never bought a Kindle book, and this thoughtlessness on the part of publishers and Amazon is one. (via Daring Fireball)

  12. Programming Amazon EC2 - O’Reilly Media

    This book’s just come out. Anyone read it? Any good? Any other recommendations for getting up to speed with hosting on AWS? Ta.

  13. How To: Getting Started with Amazon EC2 — PaulStamatiou.com

    A good intro to EC2, which I’d like to get know better. (via Infovore)

  14. HowTo: EC2 for Poets

    Nice simple instructions from Dave Winer on how to set up an Amazon EC2 virtual web server. (via Preoccupations)

  15. Pillow Speaker With Volume Control: Electronics & Photo: Amazon.co.uk

    Years ago I tried a Laurie Anderson sculpture that pretty much did just this and it was lovely. Hmm… (via Haddock)

  16. Amazon.co.uk: “Travellers Back in Time”

    I collected all the fiction mentioned in the Kottke and Marginal Revolution posts about “How would you survive if you travelled back to 1000AD?” and made them into an Amazon Listmania list.

  17. Amazon.com: “Revolutions and State Collapse”

    I love this Listmania list, especially the first part of it with comments. Saw it ages ago but didn’t save it at the time.

  18. Amazon.co.uk: “physics for beginners, and the maths that goes with it”

    Problem: How do I find time to learn stuff like this when I need to know stuff like this before I can expand time enough so I have time to learn it?

  19. Abusing Amazon images

    Reverse engineering the URLs of Amazon’s product images
