In 1995 Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon browsed a dictionary to select an “exotic and different” name for the online version of his bookselling company. He says he chose the name Amazon − biggest river in terms of volume discharged − as an allusion to his plans for expansion of the business. Once only a book selling company has now become the world’s largest online one-stop shop for the immense variety of consumer goods and media products including its own electronic gadgets like Fire Tv, Fire tablet and Kindle.
