Amazon: How Bezos built his data machine

quote [ You might call me an Amazon super-user.

I’ve been a customer since 1999, and rely on it for everything from grass seed to birthday gifts.

There are Echo speakers dotted throughout my home, Ring cameras inside and out, a Fire TV set-top box in the living room and an ageing Kindle e-reader by my bedside.

I submitted a data subject access request, asking Amazon to disclose everything it knows about me

Scanning through the hundreds of files I received in response, the level of detail is, in some cases, mind-bending. ]

Everybody is paying attention to Facebook & Google, all while shopping away their information on amazon.com
