Jeff Bezos Owns the Web in More Ways Than you Think

I admire a lot about Amazon, and this article is well worth reading; do you agree with Google's Eric Schmidt, who says the four most important tech companies are Google, Apple, Facebook, and Amazon?

Much of what does falls right in line with the big ideas I've been evangelizing here on back-end standardization to enable agile deployment of services, and server-based, device independent delivery of applications and content are leadership areas for Amazon.  Levy presents the idea, which I think is spot-on, that if Apple is post-PC, Amazon is post-web, "in which our devices are simply a means for us to directly connect with the goodies in someone’s data center."
