‘Return of the King’, ‘He’s got to come… he’s the best,’ Amazon employees comment on rumors of Jeff Bezos’ possible return to Amazon leader

Many Amazon employees have been revealed to have openly welcomed the potential return of Jeff Bezos to head e-retail giant Amazon after current CEO Andy Yassy announced the biggest wave of layoffs of 18,000 people.

Speculation that Bezos might try to replace Yassy as CEO has intensified during a steady decline in Amazon stock prices. In a recent blog post, Michael Batnick, managing partner at Ritholtz Wealth Management, suggested that Bezos would return to stabilize the company he founded.

'Return of the King', 'He's got to come... he's the best,' Amazon employees comment on rumors of Jeff Bezos' possible return to Amazon leader

“Obviously even Andy is not safe,” one employee said in an internal chat that Business Insider has access to. “He has to come…he’s the best,” another worker added. Another employee responded with a photo of Bezos with the caption “Return of the King”, while another shared a photo of Bezos with the caption “Missing me yet?”. “No wonder there are rumors of Bezos returning. He is probably asking Yassy what you are doing with my company,” the worker wrote.

Bezos stepped down as CEO to Andy Yassy in 2021, though he is still Amazon’s executive chairman. According to Forbes, the Amazon founder is currently the fifth richest person in the world with a net worth of $109.4 billion.

But Bezos’ net worth has plummeted along with Amazon’s valuation over the past year as a severe downturn hit the tech sector. Shares of Amazon and other big tech giants have steadily sold off as a series of interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve raised fears of an economic downturn.

Yassy has responded to the worsening economic outlook and falling revenues with some cost-cutting measures, including layoffs this week.

Bezos himself has not yet said anything about his possible return.

Major Indian retailer Reliance Retail has implemented support for digital rupee payments in one of its Freshpik stores and plans to expand this experience to all formats of the network.

One of the largest retail chains in India, Reliance Retail, began accepting digital rupees as part of a pilot project.

V Subramaniam, chief executive of Reliance Retail, noted that the adoption of a central bank digital currency (CBDC) is in line with the firm’s vision of providing “choice” to Indian consumers. The executive also emphasized that this initiative gives the firm the opportunity to offer an alternative payment method in its stores.

To make a purchase, customers only need to scan a QR code.

“Indians will get another efficient and secure alternative payment method” — said the top manager.

The deployment of CBDC was made possible through collaboration with ICICI Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank and Innovative Technologies.

Plans for the country’s CBDC were laid out by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on October 7, 2022. The country’s central bank has identified various factors, including the potential positive and negative impact of the digital rupee on the country. According to the RBI, one of the motivations for creating a CBDC is to reduce the operating costs of managing cash.

It seems that Samsung took into account the problems with the Galaxy S22 line of smartphones and did not repeat them in new devices when it comes to cooling systems.

Well-known insider Ice Universe has published a visual comparison of the approximate sizes of cooling systems in each flagship of the past generation and the new one.

As you can see, all systems have become noticeably larger, and in the younger model, instead of a graphite film, an evaporation chamber has appeared.

Whether this is enough for the new products not to overheat and not throttling so much, tests will show, but the performance, as we can already see, is really good. Recall that today we also saw a comparison of the Galaxy S22 Ultra and S23 Ultra cameras.

Ice Universe was the first to accurately talk about the new trend for smartphones with waterfall screens, about the notch in the iPhone X, about the new design of the iPhone 14 and about Samsung’s 200-megapixel image sensor.
