Amazon trumpets record Christmas says the BBC
Amazon has benefited from surging demand for iPods
Internet retailer Amazon has cheered Wall Street by reporting the busiest Christmas in its 10-year history.
At its height, the company said it had been logging orders for 32 items per second worldwide.
The company attributed much of the increased trade to rampant demand for Apple computers and iPod music players.
The news sent Amazon’s shares up by almost 9%, as traders seized on good news on an otherwise lacklustre day’s trading on Wall Street.
Interesting how the ipod has finally brought macs to a wider audience. If the rumours of a sub $500 mac are true, ipods could really boost sales. Ah well, I was here first 🙂
