Comment It should have been obvious. (Score 4, Insightful) 32

If I were Amazon and I bought a company who sells widgets online, I would do exactly this. It should come as no surprise when Amazon supplants the acquired company's supply-chain with their own and then closes said company. This is pretty much a no-brainer. Nothing to see here, move along.

I would like to refer you to the reply about transmission infrastructure I made elsewhere in this thread, because I am not going to type it again. The short version is, there is no budget to replace the current infrastructure, which will assuredly last the duration of my career. I intentionally positioned myself that way to avoid robot replacement. This redesign you speak of may happen, but it's at least two generations of technology away, and broadcast infrastructure iterations are expected to last 40 years / cycle.
