“It was very clear what was missing [in Seattle’s Amazon Go store]. There was no Kindle, no Fires, no place to scan and order one. Maybe that’s because you can just walk out, and they figure if they’re going to lose inventory they want it to be five dollars or under. What was distinctly absent was any Amazon products that you identify with the Amazon brand.”
