profit in 2003. Founded by Jeff Bezos in 1994, and launched in 1995, began as an online bookstore but soon diversified its
product lines by adding VHSs, DVDs, music CDs, MP3s, computer
software, video games, electronics, apparel, furniture, food, toys,
and more. Amazon has established separate websites in Canada, the
United Kingdom, Germany, France, China, and Japan. It ships globally
