Potter “Ecosystem”? July 25, 2007Posted by David Card in Media.
MSM headlines link Amazon’s strong quarter with Harry Potter. But Amazon won’t recognize revenues from those sales till next quarter. The NY Times says traffic was up 8% in anticipation, but media sales were up 27% and consumer electronics 55%. CEO Jeff Bezos says it was low prices and Amazon Prime shipping memberships. I suspect he’s closer to the real story.
Oh, and I’m about two thirds of the way through. (The weather was very nice this weekend.) No spoilers, please.
