The great movement of Amazon
Amazon , the largest online retailer in the world, has been recently moved beyond its core e-commerce business news. The chairman of Google , Eric Schmidt cataloged as his greatest competition in the online search market , despite being searches for products to buy instead of finding information, being at the end of the search.
In August, Amazon bought Twitch , service live streaming interactive network games with a figure around $ 970 million, marking the largest acquisition in its 20-year history.It was previously reported that Google could have been in talks to buy Twitch.
However, even though Google has a dominant position – representing over 90% of the online search market – Mr. Schmidt said he still wary of Google’s competitors and sees dominance as wide Finder as in the past.
“Someone, somewhere in a garage is working this year to compete us. I know, because not long ago that we were in that garage does. The change comes from where you least expect it, “he added.
The purchase of Twitch seems to be an excellent strategic move by Amazon just as online games are moving into a stage of professionalism that promotes new agreements with platforms like TV or Azubu Twitch TV. I recently talked about winning League of Legends billion during the 2014 and the events official online tournaments usually exceed 200,000 spectators only Twitch.
