Aug 25 2014 5:40pm CDT | Source: BetaNews

To call Amazon a book-seller at this point is simply not accurate. The company has blossomed into so much more; manufacturing smartphones, tablets, e-readers and pretty much selling everything under the sun. Hell, as a retailer, it is a one-stop-shop for anything, such as streaming media, groceries, and hygiene products to name a few.

Everyone's doing the ice bucket challenge. Britney Spears. Lady Gaga. Jimmy Fallon. Your mother-in-law.

By Douglas Ehrman:Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) recently released its own offering in the smartphone game, known as the Fire, in an attempt to further drive traffic to its ecommerce empire.
