  • Amazon faces employees going public with information about alleged climate-hostile policies and actions. (Details are at this link.)
  • Amazon workers are grousing about their work. An interesting example is the alleged Amazon truck driver who had to drive for 30 hours. (Allegation is summarized here.)

  • Some US elected officials want an anti trust investigation of the company. (Some additional information is at this link.)
  • Google and Microsoft poaching some Twitch stars.
