Amazon (AMZN) has bought Samsung's (SSNLF.PK) Liquavista e-reader display unit, The Digital Reader uncovers via Dutch regulatory filings; Amazon has subsequently confirmed the purchase. Past rumors indicated Samsung was trying to sell Liquavista, which was developing low-power color displays relying on a process called electrowetting, to Amazon for less than $100M.

    Some execs at Samsung wanted to keep the technology, but decided that would put Samsung in an unfair competitive advantage over everyone else. So they sold it to the first company that believed that BS. ;o)

    It seems like almost everyday we get news of something new that Amazon is doing or someone that the company is buying.

     

    With the earnings trend since 2010 as surprisingly bad as it looks, I wonder if the ship is taking on water (price wars and losing their sales tax advantage) and all this news is just an attempt at bailing out a ship in trouble.,

    The business plan is tentacular and unfocused. Great prelude to a decline.
