Amazon, you don't build real lasting success through always trying to have an exclusivity. Be more open, don't suggest for your customers to swim against the tide and you will be more successful by far. Amazon is a data driven company, how come they cannot understand that their Fire strategy is wrong? I guess Jeff Bezos doesn't really decide by data.

I would suggest that the revenues Amazon make through their app store and Kindle stores are probably data enough.

+Eli Ben-Shoshan intel is in the wrong ecosystem, it doesn't matter how much they can claim to have optimized for what, it's just the wrong platform. Until Intel makes ARM Processors all of their marketing tricks will be a waste of time for everyone involved.

Yes we need Google become a Global MVNO, not just only in Google Fiber cities, make this global, one SIM card for cheap data worldwide and make the Google Voice VOIP over SIM data become the standard there, no need for voice/sms at all.
Google SIM card.

Pay online. All VOIP. Generates local phone numbers in all countries. Buy data online (data to buy data online is always free).

$1 = 200MB
$10 = 3GB
$20 = 10GB

Use your data whenever you want, no monthly cycle. When you leave a country, you may be able to refund unused data for credit to buy new data in the next country you visit.

Prices per data may differ depending on country and depending on the deals for data which Google can negociate. Some country may block Google entering as Global single SIM card MVNO service, political pressure can then try to unlock the monopoly.

+Nicolas Charbonnier national ones, sure. The thing is that it doesn't just simply scale at the same price to an area the size of the US, nor does it currently just scale to an area the size of Europe, even.

The EU regs coming that will eliminate in-EU roaming fees will be a major disruption to telco's business models, and they're not going to voluntarily move that date up if they can help it, let alone make it global.

The thing is that telcos are not required to give companies trying to make a global network the same rates as those that are merely trying to become national competitors. And they don't, because they don't want the future that you and I want, where telcos are no more than dumb pipe providers, which is where landline ISPs are mostly already.

Delicious Graprao Gai and Geang Kiew Wan for ¥900 and O-43 Tomyam Gai Nung is also great for ¥580. One of the best Thai restaurants I have yet tried.

Simple. Get the Goat from Nisyros and the Elephant Eye for desert with a 1L mineral water. The waitress recommended me those and it was really delicious but it'll cost you 23.50€ without the tip (15€ Goat dish, 6€ Elephant Eye desert and 2.50€ 1L mineral water), which is a bit more than a 2.50€ chicken or pork Gyros from the street.
