  1. I think the whole bundle can be wrapped up in two words: customer service. Today, I got a weird error message as I was ordering my son’s Halloween present. In two seconds, I had Renee on chat, helping me sort out the situation. Many other companies would have said, “Not my problem.”

  2. This relates to that “Midas Touch” article earlier. Amazon’s real gold is customer loyalty. They make it so easy and pleasant to shop at their site that people keep coming back. They make their devices easy and pleasant to use so people keep buying content for them.

    I know every time I have an unpleasant experience somewhere else, I think, “Ugh, next time I’m going to Amazon.”
