What can’t Amazon disrupt? Jeff Bezos’s company long ago went beyond books to upend just about every inch of brick-and-mortar retail. Today it offers Amazon-produced entertainment and Amazon-engineered products, like its A.I.-powered assistant Alexa. And Amazon Web Services, the company’s cloud-computing platform, is wildly successful. Having recently acquired Whole Foods, Amazon’s incursion into the grocery market is imminent; some analysts suggest that prescription drugs or online payments may be on tap too. Meanwhile Amazon continues to experiment with drone deliveries and cashier-less “Go” convenience stores.
