Apple (AAPL) and Amazon (AMZN) are similar in that each takes a long time to develop unique products, says Netflix exec Adrian Cockcroft. With Apple, the goal is creating highly polished products, whereas with Amazon, the goal is providing massive scale. Netflix remains a heavy user of Amazon's highly scalable web services, though it wishes they would support solid-state drives (SSDs). Several SSD vendors are targeting the cloud market.
