Re: Split the company

Why? All the R&D that drives AWS (and it's profits) came about as a direct result of needing to support the box shifting. Which then provides savings and new products (Prime Video) etc back to the selling arm. An ideal system driving both parts forward. Split it up and you end up losing all that synergy (in the non joss-stick & whale song sense).
