Perhaps I’m just that sleep deprived, but I thought I heard my two-week old daughter gurgle the word “Amazon” last night. Truth is, I’m not sure whether I am extremely efficient or shamefully dependent, but almost imperceptibly Amazon has transcended convenience and ventured way into influence.
So if the U.S. World Cup team scores a goal to win a game 1-0 with five seconds left on the clock, how much is that goal worth? The easy answer, of course, is that whether it was scored with five seconds left on the clock or 89 minutes, its value remains the same: it’s still a 1-0 victory.
But we know better.
