I see that Tim didn't use the word "successful" in his reply. Amazon.com has yet to be seen to be successful. They have enormous revenue, but they have to demonstrate a consistent ability to have positive earnings coupled with earnings growth to be a successful company. They have done a staggering job in reducing expenses while keeping prices low and running one of the most astounding data operations of all time. And they're clearly a sustainable business. But their success is still up for grabs. (Disclosure: I worked there in 96-97.)
