Amazon continue to take over the world
Didn't exactly want to "like" this post, but must agree here
Prime just gets better and better. If only Amazon would release an app for Prime Music and Prime Video.
I would love prime with just the shipping aspect. I don't want nor need all there other stuff like music and videos.
When Amazon will launch prime videos and this twitch in India.
