  1. Tesla chief Elon Musk was recently trending for becoming the world's richest person. It's indeed a prestigious title to claim from Jeff Bezos, who held the title for more than three years. It's surprising to see how much Elon Musk has achieved despite all the hardships that his company was facing. Well, let's just say that Elon Musk's reign as the world's richest person was brief because Jeff Bezos has reclaimed it. This happened after Tesla Inc. shares slid 2.4% on Tuesday, wiping $4.6 billion from Musk's fortune. It knocked him down from the top spot on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index ranking.

  2. Jeff Bezos' private space company Blue Origin has been working hard to make space tourism possible for people. On Thursday, the company completed a successful flight test in the upgraded New Shepard vessel. This particular capsule was updated with a bunch of safety and comfort updates for its latest flight. According to a new report, it looks like the capsule is now ready to fly with a full crew as early as April this year. This is exciting news for people who have been actively keeping tabs on space tourism. © Blue Origin Jeff Bezos, by the way, isn't the only billionaire playing in this field. Elon Musk is already ahead in this billionaire space race with SpaceX. Richard Branson is also pushing ahead with Virgin Orbit and it'll be interesting to see how the company takes it forward. Space tourism, as interesting as it sounds, is only going to be catering to a handful of elites, at least initially. It'll be expensive and only time will tell exactly how accessible it is for common people. Naturally, once more and more players enter this space, it'll become a lot more accessible and affordable. Guess we'll just wait for now. We'll be keeping an eye on Blue Origin's space journey to see how it unfolds, so be sure to stay tuned for more updates. Source: NBCNews View the full article
  3. Tesla's chief and billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk has surpassed Jeff Bezos to become the world's richest person. Including his company's shares, Elon Musk had a net worth of more than $188.5 billion yesterday. That's $1.5 billion more than Bezos. Musk's personal wealth has been boosted by last year's more than eight-fold surge in the share of Tesla. It's now the most valuable carmaker in the world, which is also a huge success for Musk. He has a 20% stake in Tesla about $42 billion of unrealized paper gains on vested stock options. © Reuters He has also set up the Boring Company to make affordable tunnels below busy cities for an all-electric public transport system. This will enable people to avoid the nasty traffic jams. Musk is doing a lot of great things and we wish him only the best for his future as well. Source: Bloomberg View the full article
  4. Elon Musk's net worth crossed $185bn (£136bn) after shares in the electric car company soared by 4.8%
  5. Jeff Bridges says, ?I?m profoundly grateful for the love and support from my family and friends."
  6. Owing to the coronavirus crisis around the world, national economies have plummeted, taking with them several casualties in the form of sector-wide paycuts, layoffs and thousands of sinking investments - yet one man seems to be smiling all the way to the bank. Unsurprisingly, itâs none other than Amazon CEO and worldâs richest man, Jeff Bezos - who came out 24 billion dollars richer through the pandemic, putting his net worth at a staggering $143.1 billion. Thatâs 1,09,47,15,00,00,000.00 rupees - over ten trillion. With numbers that high, itâs hard to even visualise the sheer amount of wealth. Not much of a problem for Bezos apparently, who splurged on a 735 Crore NYC apartment the other day, but even that Titanic amount is a measly 0.067% of his savings. Perhaps in the spirit of educating the public, 32-year old content creator and entrepreneur Humphrey Yang decided to serve up some perspective on the billionaireâs ridiculous wealth - using rice as a way to better visualise just how ridiculously wealthy Bezos is, taking numbers and news headlines away from the equation. He first began by setting up the stage - choosing $100,000 as the net worth of a single grain of rice, and then showing us how quickly things scale up as we get richer. © Humphrey Yang Thereâs no two ways about it - that, my friends, is a shit-ton of money. To put things into perspective, Humphrey tosses in three grains - that tiny sliver of the pile amounts to Lamborghini - with $300,000, you can comfortably snag yourself a shiny new Huracan Performante. Insert: Lamborghini+Huracan (Humphrey Yang/Automobili Lamborghini) Well, after getting that Lamborghini, youâre going to need a place to keep it. How does a $5 million house in California sound? Hereâs what it looks like, converted to rice. © Humphrey Yang But the real kicker is demonstrating just how much Bezos has got in the back. While these figures are slightly outdated - Bezos did profit immensely from the lockdown after all - hereâs what his earlier net worth of $122 billion would look like. © Humphrey Yang It took the YouTuber hours upon hours of counting two entire sacks of rice totalling over 26 kilos to calculate it perfectly. His patience proves a massive point regarding the overwhelming amount of wealth possessed by the worldâs top 0.1% - itâs almost uncountable. Check the video out for yourself, above. Meanwhile, others went on social media to express their own metrics - usually with a combination of shock and awe. Rice. Part two: Jeff Bezos net worth represented visually by rice. pic.twitter.com/kYIoyxLgMW â Humphrey (@Humphreytalks) February 28, 2020 Others provided some realistic ground to the situation. No one ever makes a billion dollars. You only take a billion dollars. He stole that money from every worker he refuses to pay a living wage or city he scammed out of tax revenue out of or small business he ran into the ground through predatory market manipulation. â M.R. M. Go (@Marinaisgo) February 28, 2020 No matter which way you look at it, itâs a lot of rice. Thankfully, Humphreyâs made sure it goes unwasted and is delivered to local families - just imagine how the world could change if Bezos did the same with his wealth. View the full article
  7. In a scenario where the economy worldwide seems to be coming to a grinding halt, and people are losing their jobs left, right and centre, one would assume, sensible people will not go all out spending their money. But then, not everyone is Jeff Bezos. © Reuters Thanks to the stronghold that Jeff Bezosâ Amazon has all over the world, thanks to its businesses such as the e-commerce platform and Amazon Web Services, Jeff Bezos and Amazon saw their net worth increase exponentially over the last financial quarter. In fact, Jeff Bezos, who was any way the richest man on earth, despite a divorce settlement that saw half of his wealth go to his now ex-wife, saw his personal wealth grow by $24 billion. © Reuters Now, what do you do when you just canât stop minting money even when the world around you seems to be crumbling down? If youâre Jeff Bezos, you buy additional units around one of your apartments in New York City, a city with one of the highest real estate prices, for $16 million, or Rs 122 Crores. © Twitter/JeffBezos Despite the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent lockdown, Jeff Bezos bought another apartment unit at 212, Fifth Avenue, where he already owned a Penthouse, worth $58 million, and a few additional units around the penthouse worth $22 Million. In Indian money, thatâs Rs 445 Crore, and 168 Crore, respectively, which adds up to Rs 613 Crores. © VisualHouse The combined value of his property in just that one building comes up to be Rs 735 crores. As per a New York Post article, construction and renovation permits were granted to Bezos to combine all these units into one apartment. © VisualHouse In an interview with the New York Post, a New York-based real estate broker, Dolly Lenz said that for his latest 3 bedroom apartment, the one he bought for $16 Million, Bezos paid more than the market value. This comes at a time when New York City has emerged as the global hotspot for the novel coronavirus, with over 2,22,000 active cases as of while writing this article. © Reuters Bezos was recently in the limelight for asking people to donate to Amazonâs charity fund so that the warehouse workers across the Amazon network all over the world, and other people in need could be taken care of, and some money would go into research around the virus. © Reuters Bezos latest acquisition comes on the back of several reports stating that in a number of warehouses, workers havenât been given the proper PPEs to work, and often, they have to work while ignoring social distancing norms, because of the nature of their work. Not to say that much before the entire pandemic, Amazon has had several documented cases of having warehouses with inhuman working conditions. © Reuters One would assume such allegations and such PR nightmares would be enough for Amazon and the companyâs top bosses would face the music. But given how the company was recently valued at over $1.1 trillion, that does not seem likely, anytime soon. View the full article
  8. The Australia bushfire and the consequences that followed has not only affected the animals and humans living in the continent, but has alarmed the world of what awaits us in terms of climate change and the dire consequences of the same. View this post on Instagram Not all heroes wear capes, volunteer firemen to help with Australia wildfires. Salute to these heroes ! #bushfires #australiaisburning#australiaburns #climatechange#stopadani #climateactionnow#climatecatastrophe#climateemergency#AustralianBushfires #australiafires#bushfiresaustralia #bushfire#australiabushfire#australiabushfires #ScottMorrison A post shared by Kattee (@katteebags) on Jan 14, 2020 at 2:14am PST People and organsations around the world are trying to raise awareness and even donate towards the relief fund for the bushfires. One famous model hit the headlines when she offered to send nudes to her followers who were donating towards the Australia bushfires and managed to raise over a million dollars. Celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Metallica have donated over a million dollars as well but when Amazon founder Jeff Bezos posted on his social media, informing the world about his donation, he was roasted and trolled for it. View this post on Instagram Our hearts go out to all Australians as they cope with these devastating bushfires. Amazon is donating 1 million AU dollars in needed provisions and services. Find more about it and learn how customers can help as well. Link in bio. A post shared by Jeff Bezos (@jeffbezos) on Jan 11, 2020 at 10:17pm PST With his net worth being estimated close to $936 billion, he has offered to donate $690,000 towards the relief funds. People cannot fathom that he makes over $78.5 billion in a year personally and yet he decided to donate only a tiny amount (as per his wealth's estimate). If I had one million dollars and gave 75 cents to Australia, I would have given a bigger portion of my wealth than Jeff Bezos did https://t.co/gjBJ9aAlZL — mel (@MervinMastishin) January 13, 2020 Jeff Bezos gave $690,000 to wild fires in Australia, and has 116.7 billion dollars. To put this into perspective, my boyfriend has $1,500 net savings, and that would be the equivalent to him donating 0.88 cents. — Janet E. McSaxophone (@janeejpg) January 14, 2020 People are also mad that this amount is less than what he makes in 5 minutes, and we cannot even cook instant noodles in that time. Jeff Bezos makes $149,353 a minute. His company's board refused to pass a climate proposal. He just donated LESS THAN 5 MINUTES of work to Australia. This is simply not enough. Tax-the-rich! https://t.co/Sri3Xtkhos — Juliana Castro ð¤ð¼ (@juliacastrov) January 13, 2020 This is how much money #JeffBezos makes in 3 minutes. https://t.co/HL9dYadpVQ — Peter Daou (@peterdaou) January 12, 2020 Australia can have a little of Jeff Bezos' time. 3 minutes exactly. — ðJehoshaphat Bidenð (@CallMeGdubG) January 13, 2020 Over 2 months ago, he was trolled for donating around $98 million for homeless people across 23 states in the US because that was around 0.08% of his net worth. What is happening in Australia is the stark yet sad reality of how real the climate change is. Please contribute and do your bit in not just donating towards a relief fund but also doing whatever you can to contribute in saving our planet. View the full article
  9. Jeff Bezos is the richest man in the world with an estimated net worth of over $109 billion. But then, even the richest man on this planet cannot buy a few things, which include the silence of the people on the internet on his actions, and people stating facts which can deem as collateral damage to his public image. © Twitter The Amazon founder was in the news recently for making a donation of over $98.5 million towards various organisations across 23 states in the USA working to give homeless people a decent way of life. Now 98 freaking million dollars is a lot of money, like insane amount right? However, when you sit and do some maths, a quick round of calculation will tell you that this is close to just like one percent of someone's wealth when their net worth is around 109 billion dollars! So, people on the internet are feeling that this is kind of a petty move and he could have done better. That's 0.09% of your net worth. Just pay your taxes. https://t.co/KEke1NUE8E — Jeremy Corbyn (@jeremycorbyn) November 24, 2019 #JeffBezos gave $98 million to homeless organizations (which I'm sure are corrupt ones). His donation Is the equivalent of someone giving $45 if they make $50,000 a year. Plus he doesn't pay any taxes. — Charolette (@exhale_chaos) November 26, 2019 Some people tried to give more perspective explaining how saving on all that tax money, the world's richest dude could do so much more, if he wanted. Jeff Bezos makes $60,000 every 24 seconds. Every 24 seconds, he adds a living wage to his bank account. Every second, he makes enough money to feed hundreds of homeless people. EVERY SECOND.#TaxTheRich — Sergio Síano ð (@siano4progress) November 25, 2019 Jeff Bezos could buy a $150,000 house for every homeless person in America and still have almost $20 BILLION in personal wealth — Carl Gibson (@crgibs) November 23, 2019 Somewhere in here is #JeffBezos needle of charitable donation... #mondaythoughts pic.twitter.com/8A0iPfhQq9 — Matt Smith (@thewy003) November 25, 2019 There are some people who wholeheartedly supported this move and are clueless as to why he is being trolled for making a donation. You can feed a kid at month with your income, but... Would you? With the money you buy a drink any other Saturday you can buy food for one person... But are you doing so? Easy to expend someone else's money ð¤¦ð½‍âï¸ð — Brunella Diez (@brunella10) November 24, 2019 How about he just employs 650,000 people instead.... oh wait.. 98 million to the homeless and y'all want more. who's selfish here? Amazon has directly shifted the way we receive products. + get used to it because guess what, Amazon's only getting richer — Caileb Stanley (@cailebs) November 25, 2019 Looks like, there is no way to win but honestly, I don't think the man cares because we say what we want but Amazon is only getting richer.

  11. Everyone knows who Jeff Bezos is, right? One of the richest men in the world, Amazon CEO, a really big deal? Well, turns out, some people have no clue. Bezos' recent visit to a company-funded computer science class at Dunbar High School in Washington, DC and his interaction with the students there, has now gone viral on the internet. In the video, Bezos is seen talking to the students about Amazon's 'Future Engineer Programmes' which funds the students for courses around the US and while this was happening, a student was seen asking, "who's Jeff Bezos?" twice to another student who was sitting right behind him. Jeff Bezos may be one of the most well-known CEOs in the world, but for this kid, he is just another man. The video was posted by NBC Washington's Caroline Tucker and she tweeted, “This morning @amazon is at Dunbar High School in DC to announce a milestone in its Future Engineer Program. They had a surprise guest... Jeff Bezos. Watch the full video here- This morning @amazon is at Dunbar High School in DC to announce a milestone in its Future Engineer Program. They had a surprise guest....Jeff Bezos. @nbcwashington pic.twitter.com/dmOvmeJ4Fv — Caroline Tucker (@CTuckerNews) October 21, 2019 However, something even more interesting happened after the kid found out who Bezos is. When the teenager got to know that Bezos is the CEO of one of the largest companies in the world, he turned around saying, “Big deal, so what?” Umm...okay! We all want to attain the level of chill this kid has. Caroline Tucker also wrote, “The young man in the class ended up being the only one who spoke to Jeff Bezos about how much he has learned about coding. Later on, he told me he wanted to “seize” the opportunity to talk to the CEO.” FYI...the young man in the class ended up being the only one who spoke to Jeff Bezos about how much he has learned about coding. Later on, he told me he wanted to “seize” the opportunity to talk to the CEO. @nbcwashington pic.twitter.com/E8LoFv2o99 — Caroline Tucker (@CTuckerNews) October 22, 2019 According to the New York Post, the teacher of the class said that only about three students in her class knew who he was when he entered the classroom. Here's what the netizens have to say about it- If he's not an Instagram "influencer" how will the kids know about him? Maybe we need a shot of @JeffBezos on the beach in a bikini for the kids to show interest — Tony Singh (@singhton) October 21, 2019 Human... I think the bigger issue is with the education system. Why aren't kids being inspired to be the next Jeff Bezo — Mary Oliver (@MaryOli16643592) October 22, 2019 People is judging the kid, but he is there to learn and maybe high-tech celebrities are not on his wish list. — Julio Acevedo (@Juliomace23) October 22, 2019 Bezos, who owns the Washington Post, is the richest man in the world with an estimated net worth of despite a huge divorce settlement with ex-wife MacKenzie Bezos worth $35.6 billion in Amazon stock -- making her one of the top five richest women in the world and one of Amazon's largest shareholders. Bezos has an estimated net worth of $110 billion, do we really need to say more? So, in case you don't know who Jeff Bezos is, it's time you Google him.
  12. Online shopping has made our lives so much easier. You can buy whatever you want at the click of a button while sitting in the comfort of your rooms. But, at times, it happens that you buy something and realise that you don't need it anymore or just regret buying it. Something similar happened with Evie Schwerin, an Amazon Prime member. According to Geek Wire, Schwerin bought a product from Amazon and realised that she already had that product. Generally, when you buy something online, you return it within 30 days. That's the generic return policy most e-commerce portals have. Instagram In Schwerin's case, due to some issues, she was unable to return her product. So, after four failed attempts, she decided to take her complaint directly to the top and went directly to CEO Jeff Bezos to return the purchase. Bezos was having an annual shareholder meeting in Seattle and during the Q&A session, the woman said: "Could you please return this for me?" Bezos was quick to respond and his reply was epic, "My apologies that you had to use this unusual venue to accomplish what should be a much simpler task. We'll also look into the root cause of why that happened." Bezos then went on to ask, "Anybody else have anything they need to return?" That's a good idea, actually. If only someone can fund our trip to Seattle, we too can probably go and return the products directly to Bezos.
  13. They say money can't buy happiness, and there is no denying that it's true. But money can buy things which brings a strange pleasure to those who seek it. Be it for the happiness of our family, or personal satisfaction, we sometimes don't mind spending money on things that do not make sense but bring us pleasure. However, while most of us can only afford to spend our hard-earned money on senseless stuff only once in a while when the temptation becomes too difficult to ignore, the billionaires of this world do not have such obligations. Given the amount of money that sits in their bank accounts, they can choose to spend their millions and billions in the most unnecessary and senseless ways, without giving it a second thought. © Twitter A few hours ago, news broke that the world's richest man Jeff Bezos spent rupees 1.25 crore on bulletproof panels for his Seattle office. The inch-and-a-half thick fibreglass panels were chosen because they can reportedly withstand shots from military assault rifles. What's more, it is being said that Amazon spends over 11 crore rupees on Bezos' security annually. Now, we understand that the man needs protection, but that's a whole lot of money to spend on an individual's personal security. But this isn't all, we list down 5 other world billionaires who decided to go ahead and spend their money in even stranger ways. 1. Bill Gates © Twitter Bill Gates is a great admirer of Leonardo da Vinci and maybe that is the only explanation as to why he chose to spend over 30 million dollars on the old man's journal. Back in 1994, Microsoft founder Gates spent 30.8 million dollars to gain the ownership of the Codex Leicester. It is a 72-page manuscript compiled by da Vinci compiled in the early 16th century and features the master polymath's diagrams, writings, sketches and ideas for future inventions. 2. Mukesh Ambani © Twitter India's richest man and industrial magnate, Mukesh Ambani owns more money than we can count. With a net worth of 5,530 crore dollars, he sure built a house that speaks money. Mukesh Ambani spend 1 billion dollars to build the most expensive home in the world! A 27-storey skyscraper that stretches across 400,000-square-foot, it comes with a helipad and six-level underground parking. What's more, reportedly it also has a ballroom, a 50-seat theatre and nine elevators in the lobby alone, and requires around 600 staff to maintain the place. And all that for a family of six, that stays in the mansion at a given time. 3. Jocelyn Wildenstein's Plastic Surgeries © Twitter A well-known Swiss socialite, Wildenstein always waded in money. However, things only got bigger and crazier after she received 2.5 billion dollars as a divorce settlement. Wildenstein, who is now in her late 70s, had been spending millions, almost excessively and obsessively, on plastic surgery. According to a Mirror report, Wildenstein has spent over 27 crores on her decade-long surgeries. 4. Elon Musk © Twitter Tesla and SpaceX founder, Elon Musk is known for his eccentricity. For the man whose brain led to the inception of the Hyperloop tunnel, it only makes sense that he fancies “different” methods of personal transportation. Back in 2013, Musk acquired the Lotus Esprit submarine car of James Bond's glory, from 'The Spy Who Loved Me' and reportedly, he had to cough out almost 1 million dollars for the car which was found in a storage shed of a junk collector. 5. Hassanal Bolkiah © Twitter Known as the infamous Sultan of Brunei, Bolkiah probably got the most expensive haircut in the world. Reportedly, the Sultan flies in a barber from London and pays him around 19,000 US dollars for a single haircut. Not only that, but the Sultan also takes care of the barber's accommodation and other requirements. That's some kind of job to have, no?
  14. With $131 billion tinkering in his bank account, world's richest man Jeff Bezos can literally get his hands on everything money can buy. With that kind of money, not only does one enjoy immense luxury but also comes to hold positions of power and prestige. Jeff Bezos is proof that when you own half the world's cash in your bank account, not only can you live the best life by spending it on awesome things, but also back crazy inventions for the world to see. Here are 10 insanely awesome things owned by Jeff Bezos which prove that he is Richie Rich come to life. 1. A museum for a house. © Entrepreneur Bezos owns a house in Washington which was once a Textiles Museum. He spent 23 million dollars to make that property his own in 2016. Reportedly, post renovations, the house will have 11 bedrooms, 25 bathrooms, 5 living rooms and 2 elevators. 2. A top-of-the-class private jet. © Private Jet Fan Owning a private jet becomes a necessity when you are Jeff Bezos, and surely the man is known for travelling on a Gulfstream G-650ER, which is one of the fastest private jets in the world. 3. A clock that will work till the end of time. © Business Insider Yeah, you read that right. Keeping up with time is of utmost importance when you have an empire to run. But who wants a regular timepiece when you can own a clock which will run for 10,000 years? Bezos invested $42 million in getting the clock made, which is under construction in Texas. 4. A 10,000 square feet apartment in New York. © Business Insider Bezos is the owner of 3 linked apartments spanning over 10,000 square feet, in New York's upscale Central Park West area which cost him $17 million. 5. A 141-year-old newspaper. © NY Times One of the leading newspapers in the US, The Washington Post was bought by Jeff Bezos back in 2013.The acquisition cost him $230 million and the 141-year-old newspaper became his. 6. A commercial rocket factory. © Spacenews Touted to be Bezos' most dear passion project (after Amazon of course), his aerospace company Blue Origin is invested in making rockets for commercial use. Bezos funded the company to make space travel affordable for 'regular' customers. 7. A robo-dog. © Twitter Bezos showed off a 'robot dog' in 2018 with a tweet. Named Spot Mini, the robo-dog has been reportedly created by Boston Dynamics. It is believed that Bezos owns the dog since he called it “my dog” on Twitter. 8. A house in Hollywood. © Variety Known to be one of the most famous neighbourhoods in Hollywood, Bezos owns a Spanish style mansion in Beverly Hills in California. A Business Insider report claimed that the 7 bedroom, 7 bathroom mansion has “a greenhouse, a sunken and lighted tennis court, a huge swimming pool, four fountains, and a six-car garage.” 9. A lake house in Seattle, with Bill Gates as his neighbour. © AOL Bought by Bezos in 1998, it reportedly cost him $10 million dollars. It's a 5.3-acre estate that houses two residences - a 20,600-square-foot, five-bedroom, four-bathroom space and an 8,300-square-foot, five bedroom, four-bathroom home. 10. An expansive Amazon campus in Seattle. © USA Today Bezos' Amazon Seattle campus spreads over four downtown blocks and cost him $4 billion. Reportedly, one of the structures called The Spheres has a tropical forest replicated within it.
  15. MacKenzie Bezos, the woman who became the world's third richest woman overnight. Well, not quite. MacKenzie had been married to Amazon founder and world's richest man Jeff Bezos for the last 26 years, which made them the richest couple in the world. So, the woman had been rich, as well as a billionaire even before Jeff and MacKenzie parted ways and headed for what would turn out to be the 'world's most expensive divorce'. (c) Twitter Earlier today, MacKensie announced that post her divorce, she now owns company shares that are worth over 35 billion dollars, or over Rs 24 lakh crore, which sure made her a whole lot richer overnight. While Jeff Bezos has been always making news every other day, MacKenzie had stayed out of the spotlight for most part, until today. Here is everything we know about her. She's A Celebrated Novelist (c) Twitter MacKenzie is a noted American novelist, who won an American Book Award for her debut novel 'The Testing of Luther Albright' (2005). MacKenzie started writing at an early age and had even written a 142-page book as a 6-year-old. She studied Creative Writing at Princeton University and has authored two novels till date, 'The Testing of Luther Albright' and 'Traps'. Nobel Prize Winning Author Toni Morrison Called Her “One Of The Best Students” (c) Twitter In 1992, Nobel Prize winner author Toni Morrison took MacKenzie as a research assistant for her novel 'Jazz', while the latter was studying at Princeton. In an interview with Vogue, Morrison said that Bezos was "one of the best students I've ever had in my creative-writing classes ... really one of the best." She reportedly also found a literary agent for MacKenzie. Jeff Bezos & MacKenzie's Love Story Jeff and Mackenzie first met when Jeff was interviewing for the position of administrative assistant at the hedge fund D.E. Shaw & Co. in New York. MacKenzie happened to be the first interviewee for the role, which she had taken up to pay the bills while she worked on her novels. At the time, MacKenzie was 23, and Jeff 30. (c) Twitter In an interview with Vogue in 2013, she told the magazine, “My office was next door to his, and all day long I listened to that fabulous laugh. How could you not fall in love with that laugh?” Within months of their first date, the couple got engaged and eventually married in 1993. She Played A Pivotal Role In Amazon's Launch (c) Twitter It is said that when Jeff and MacKenzie first moved to Seattle to launch Amazon in 1994, MacKenzie worked as one of the company's first accountants. She even used to ship early order, besides handling many other aspects of the company. Once the brand found its footing, she stepped back and began focusing on her writing. The Jeff & MacKenzie Bezos Family (c) Twitter Jeff and MacKenzie have three sons and a daughter who were adopted by the couple from China. To this day, Jeff and MacKensie are very private about this aspect of their life. MacKenzie once told Vogue magazine that she and Jeff are hands-on parents and experiment with various parenting and education techniques. “We tried all sorts of things, including off-season travel, kitchen-science experiments, chicken incubation, Mandarin lessons, the Singapore math program, and lots of clubs and sports with other neighborhood kids,” she was quoted as saying by the magazine. pic.twitter.com/OJWn3OOLS6 — MacKenzie Bezos (@mackenziebezos) April 4, 2019 However, today MacKenzie has officially parted ways with her ex-husband. While the announcement stated that they would “continue our shared lives as friends,” the final divorce settlement, which was finalised earlier today, hasn't come at a marginal cost. As per Forbes, with $35 billion in her bank account, MacKenzie Bezos is now world's third-richest woman after divorce. All in all, MacKenzie Bezos would be the world's 26th richest person after her expensive divorce from Jeff Bezos.
  16. Amazon founder and world's richest man, Jeff Bezos, has finally settled the long talked-about divorce with wife MacKenzie Bezos, making it the world's most expensive divorce ever. Earlier this year, on 9th January Jeff Bezos took to his Twitter account to announce the couple's impending divorce, after 26 years of marriage. pic.twitter.com/Gb10BDb0x0 — Jeff Bezos (@JeffBezos) January 9, 2019 While the announcement stated that they would “continue our shared lives as friends,” the final divorce settlement, which was finalised a few hours ago, hasn't come at a marginal cost. Post her divorce, MacKenzie now owns company shares that are worth over 35 billion dollars, or over Rs 3500 crore. pic.twitter.com/OJWn3OOLS6 — MacKenzie Bezos (@mackenziebezos) April 4, 2019 As per Forbes, that makes MacKenzie Bezos world's third richest woman after divorce. L'Oréal's Francoise Bettencourt Meyers is the world's richest woman with 52.9 billion dollars to her name, while Walmart's Alice Walton is the second-richest with 45 billion dollars in her bank account. All in all, MacKenzie Bezos would be the world's 26th richest person after her expensive divorce from Jeff Bezos. © Twitter We wonder where this leaves Jeff Bezos now. It has been announced that Jeff will continue to retain 75 percent of his stock in the company following the divorce. The divorce shall not take away Jeff's influence over the workings of Amazon. He will continue to be the largest shareholder in the company. © Twitter While Jeff Bezos is one of the world's most successful businessmen with Amazon, MacKensie, too, is an accomplished author who won an American Book Award for her debut novel 'The Testing of Luther Albright'. We wish the couple well for the future that awaits them.
  17. One of the biggest fears to live by in the man-made digital age, is fearing the leakage of classified or fragile information, from various digital mediums. A bigger fear than that is fearing the leakage of nude pictures that someone's ex may have of them, on a digital platform. Yes, we live in such a disruptive age, that it just takes a click for something like that ever happen. © Twitter Leaking someone's nudes digitally also makes for the best blackmail till date and it's a scary ordeal TBH. If you don't believe me, you can surely ask Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who actually chose to say 'no' to blackmail, only to wind up with a potential scandal in hand, after he publicly announced his divorce from his long-time wife MacKenzie. Bezos has publicly claimed that a local tabloid is blackmailing him with steamy leaked photos of him to his recent 'lover', and he definitely won't succumb to any form of blackmail, whatsoever. © Pintrest On a personal blog post, Besoz said that the 'National Enquirer' is threatening to publish his 'intimate photos' and that he has chosen to reveal the information about the threats rather than 'capitulate to extortion and blackmail'. The blog entry is titled 'No Thank you Mr. Pecker', and in it, Bezos is accusing the local tabloid of threatening him to publish intimate photos of him with Lauren Sanchez, the reporter with whom he was having an affair. I've written a post about developments with the National Enquirer and its parent company, AMI. You can find it here: https://t.co/G1ykJAPPwy — Jeff Bezos (@JeffBezos) 7 February 2019 Bezos believes the publication thinks the pictures were blackmail-worthy because they were perfect to tarnish the richest man's reputation amidst the Amazon stakeholders. Bezos has hired an investigator to further figure how the tabloid got hold of his intimate pictures in the first place. But the big question is, why would the National Enquirer blackmail him anyway? © Instagram According to Bezos, the parent company of the tabloid- American Media Inc. wants the Amazon chief to admit publicly that their investigation into his personal life was never "politically motivated or influenced by political forces". By now we all know the National Enquirer carried out a detailed investigation into Bezos' affair, which eventually led to his marriage ending, but we're not sure how any of it was influenced politically though. The National Enquirer claimed it had evidence that Bezos was "whisking his mistress off to exotic destinations on his $65 million private jet." "Something unusual happened to me yesterday. Actually, for me, it wasn't just unusual? - it was a first. I was made an offer I couldn't refuse. Or at least that's what the top people at the National Enquirer thought. I'm glad they thought that, because it emboldened them to put it all in writing," Bezos wrote. "Rather than capitulate to extortion and blackmail, I've decided to publish exactly what they sent me, despite the personal cost and embarrassment they threaten," Jeff Bezos states in his blog post. © Twitter The tabloid holds photos of Bezos in his briefs, naked selfies and an explicit dick picture. One of the emails sent to Bezos by AMI reads- "If your client agrees to cease and desist such defamatory behaviour, we are willing to engage in constructive conversations regarding the texts and photos which we have in our possession," To which Bezos replies, in his blog post "Well, that [the email] got my attention but not in the way they likely hoped. Any personal embarrassment AMI could cause me takes a back seat because there's a much more important matter involved here. If in my position I can't stand up to this kind of extortion, how many people can?" © Twitter As of now, Bezos has decided to run the risk of the tabloid leaking his nudes, in order to publicise the AMIs extortion practices and show the world how they really do business. I think it's a mighty brave move, Mr CEO. He adds- "Be assured, no real journalists ever propose anything like what is happening here. Nothing I might write here could tell the National Enquirer story as eloquently as their own words."
  18. Amazon is one of the world's wealthiest companies and is now expanding their headquarters to two other cities in the United States. However, founder Jeff Bezos had a meeting with his employees where he was asked tough questions regarding the company's future. © YouTube An employee wanted to know more about Amazon's direction and Bezos gave a reply that deems possible. Bezos replied "Amazon is not too big to fail. In fact, I predict one day Amazon will fail. Amazon will go bankrupt. If you look at large companies, their lifespans tend to be 30-plus years, not hundred-plus years," Bezos said. CNBC reported the conversation after hearing a recording of the meeting. He added that everyone's goal at Amazon is to "prolong that demise”. He suggested that this can be achieved by “obsessing over customers”. He continued to add that "If we start to focus on ourselves, instead of focusing on our customers, that will be the beginning of the end. We have to try and delay that day for as long as possible," he said. © YouTube Amazon has been expanding the company's business and success at a pace that is highly unprecedented. The core retail business continues to grow; however, the company's major revenue source is its dominant position in cloud-computing i.e. Amazon Web Services. Amazon's workforce has grown to over 600,000 employees in the last eight years and the rising stock price has made it a trillion dollar company. Last month, a report suggests Amazon raised the minimum wage for all employees putting the company a step ahead of its rivals like Target, Walmart and others.
  19. In a recent interview, Jeff Bezos revealed that he recommends using fear to drive work ethic and innovative thinking. Bezos believes the strategy should be implemented even when everything is going well. © Reuters In a shareholder note, Bezos wrote “I constantly remind our employees to be afraid, to wake up every morning terrified. Our customers have made our business what it is," he continued, "and we consider them to be loyal to us – right up until the second that someone else offers them a better service.” In a highly competitive world, Bezos believes that employees need to be scared of not being at the top and commit to "constant improvement, experimentation and innovation in every initiative.” It kind of makes sense as when you're at the top there's only one way to go — down. It is extremely hard to maintain your position at the top. © Reuters It's not the first time a CEO has adopted the strategy of using fear as a way to motivate workers and employees. Former PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi transformed the entire company during her tenure and became one of the most successful business figures in the world. In a previous interview with Bloomberg, Nooyi said "I'm always afraid that if I fail, I may have to go back to something that I don't want to,” she continued, "That fear always motivates me and so I drive myself to be better and better at my job every day.” When Amazon first started as a company, it would only sell books online. Bezos later transformed Amazon into the world's leading online retailer and it was all thanks to innovation. The website today now sells everything from gadgets to healthcare and entertainment. "To invent you have to experiment, and if you know in advance that it's going to work, it's not an experiment," Bezos wrote in a 2016 shareholder letter. "Failure and invention are inseparable twins.” © Reuters Innovation and experimentation have enabled Bezos to make Amazon the next trillion dollar company right behind Apple. Bezos himself is now worth more than $156 billion and is now at the top of Forbes richest list. Source: CNBC
  20. I'm pretty sure if given an opportunity, no one in this world would ever pass up the chance to go to space, no one. But, space exploration is not that much of a reality yet, and it just reminds me of this one Tumblr post. Very relatable, of course. But, space travel might be possible soon, and when I say soon, I mean in just a couple of years. And, of course, the world's richest man will probably make it happen. Reportedly, Jeff Bezos' rocket company Blue Origin, plans to start charging interested passengers for its first trips into space next year and the price will be about $200,000 to $300,000, or Rs. 1.36 crore to 2.05 crore. So cheap, right? That's such a bargain, I'm so impressed by Jeff. Reuters Okay, all jokes aside, space travel is such a cool thing, so obviously you'll have to pay a lot, A LOT, for it. People who were waiting for the cost of a ticket – and who can actually afford it – on Blue Origin's New Shepard space vehicle finally have some answers through two anonymous sources, who are employees of Blue Origin. Last month, executives of the company shared at a business conference that they are planning test flights with passengers on the New Shepard soon, and then will start selling the tickets next year. Reuters According to Reuters, the New Shepard is “designed to autonomously fly six passengers more than 62 miles (100 km) above Earth into suborbital space, high enough to experience a few minutes of weightlessness and see the curvature of the planet before the pressurized capsule returns to earth under parachutes.” Reuters Apparently, Blue Origin has already completed eight test flights on New Shepard of the vertical take-off and landing, but none of them had any passengers aboard. But, two of the tests did have a test dummy named “Mannequin Skywalker.” Tbh, I prefer the name, Starman. The only thing left to see now, is who will win the race for space travel – Elon Musk, Richard Branson or Jeff Bezos. Source – Reuters

  22. You shop at Amazon. I shop at Amazon. Everybody shops at Amazon. You know who gets rich when we do that? Mr. Jeff Bezos, the richest guy on the planet and also, easily the most jacked self-made billionaire. Now go back and read the word 'jacked'. Despite making news more than often, very little is talked about Bezos' physical transformation. So here's a timeline of how Bezos went from a skinny online bookseller to a billionaire buff tycoon. This is Jeff somewhere during 1998-99. © Twitter This is about the same time when Jeff was pushing Amazon's bookselling idea to the masses. As you can easily make out from the picture above, he looks that he doesn't even know that gyms exist. By Mid 2000s Amidst all the criticism and stock plunges, Jeff rose as a billionaire leader. Critics were buried. But still, Jeff didn't know what magic weight training could do. © Twitter Now fast forward almost 20 years later, and Bezos is no more the Bezos who was selling books back in the 90s and 2000s- definitely not money wise and most certainly, not physically either. 2017-2018: This is SWOLE BEZOS! © Youtube Giddy up, the man's a walking and talking tank now. Easily somewhere 15 kilos heavier and almost sub 13% body fat, Bezoz committed to the life of the iron. Not only he looks younger, but also way more energetic and of course confident. How can I say that? Look up any of his interviews or speeches from the 2000s and pick up any of his recent speeches. The dialogue delivery has immensely changed for better. That's exactly what a good diet and structured weight training does to you. Now look at those pectorals and arms man! I love Dwayne Johnson @therock. Still working on my smolder. Copy paste: https://youtu.be/gJN7-jC7x8w?t=173 A post shared by Jeff Bezos (@jeffbezos) on Apr 15, 2018 at 5:53pm PDT Blue Origin And Bezos Going Into Space Now, why is he getting in shape? Well, you don't need a reason to get in shape, just like you don't have any reasons to get fat. Anyway, if rumors are to be believed, Jeff will board a flight into the outer space to test ride the creation of his startup called Blue Origin. It's his space tourism venture. So that's being cited as one of the reasons he's getting his grind on in the gym. So, How Does His Eating And Training Look? Well, there's actually not a lot of info on his training and eating but taking a look at him, it's safe to say that he's religiously dedicated to weight training. The muscle mass he's carrying says it all. As far as his eating is concerned, it high in protein for sure and fat and carbohydrates adjusted to keep him looking lean and staying active. What You Can Learn Of course, you aren't going to make billions from inspiration alone. So, cut that out. What you can learn from Jeff is that you can still get in shape, regardless of your age. If he can do at 54, you can do it too. And yes, chuck the cardio and stick to eating calculated and doing weight training.
  23. In a recent interview with Jeff Bezos, Business Insider was able to touch some of the fascinating points of Jeff's life that had always remained uncovered before. During the interview, Jeff talked about the skills that helped him attain success and the positive impact his family has had on his career. © Reuters Jeff resigned from his high paying job at Wall Street with an idea as small as selling books online. He believed in himself and the people who supported him to take this risk-filled journey. He re-started his life.packing up books on the floor in the mid-1990s at the start of Amazon to aiming to launch humans into space with Blue Origin by 2020. Jeff said the most important thing that has helped him do it all has been resourcefulness. Jeff said, “Being resourceful. If there's a problem, there's a solution. Look, we all get gifts, we get certain things in our life that we're very lucky about. And one of the most powerful ones is who your early role models are." He further added, “When you have loving and supportive people in your life, like MacKenzie (his wife), my parents, my grandfather, my grandmother, you end up being able to take risks.” For Bezos, It Is Less Of A Work-Life Balance But More Like A Work-Life Cycle. © Reuters He explains, “The reality is, if I am happy at home, I come into the office with tremendous energy. And if I am happy at work, I come home with tremendous energy. It actually is a circle. It's not a balance.” Jeff says he goes on trips with his siblings, thanks to his mom who takes care of the kids and that he just went on an amazing trip to Norway for a few days with his wife and family. His Take On The Competition. Jeff believes, “Look, you know, it's okay to be afraid, but don't be afraid of our competitors, because they're never going to send us any money. Be afraid of our customers. And if we just stay focused on them, instead of obsessing over this big competitor that we just got, we'll be fine.” His Advice To Anyone Who Is Afraid Of Taking A Risk To Make It Big In Life. Jeff says, “Life is full of different risks. And I think that, when you think about the things that you will regret when you're 80, they're almost always the things that you did not do.”
  24. People say, “If you've got it, flaunt it” but how many of us can actually implement it in our lives? Well, Jeff Bezos does and when he does it, the whole world stops just to get a glance of him. And that's exactly what happened at the MARS 2018 conference when took his 'new dog' out for a walk. What's so special about Jeff Bezos walking his dog? I walk my dog every day, but no one gives two hoots about it. There can be two reasons for this – first, he is the world's richest man and second, your dog comes nowhere close to Bezos' SpotMini, a dog-like robot. The pet robot dog, SpotMini, was created by Boston Dynamics. Reuters If you ever want to measure success and how filthy rich one can be, don't look at Jordon Belfort from 'Wolf of The Wall Street', who slept on a pile of cash. Look at Jeff Bezos, who got a robot to be his pet dog. A dog who doesn't throw tantrums or wants you to cuddle them all day long, but opens doors like a pro. Internet literally lost its shit when the Amazon founder stepped out with his pet robot. And we can't help but compare this particular moment to Akshay Kumar and his pet dog from 'Entertainment'. The only difference is that in the movie the dog was worth a million dollars, but in real life the owner Jeff Bezos is worth billions of dollars. This is the kickass picture, we and in fact the whole world, is talking about.

  25. Are all of us that masochistic that we love to look at how rich everyone is, and are very interested to know the net worth of all these rich people while we're going broke? What kind of twisted logic we have? Whatever the case may be, we always want to know who's the richest person in the world and Forbes is so kind, it provides us with just the exact same information. The 2018 ranking is here, and let's all of us go through how much people like Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates are worth together, because misery loves company. If you want to intensify the pain even more, just look at your bank balance once before proceeding. Let's begin. On the top, we obviously have Jeff Bezos, founder, chairman, and CEO of Amazon, who's worth $112 Billion. Actually wait, let's write the whole thing for a better impact. It's $112,000,000,000. Wow man, so many zeroes. Just imagine that even if we remove a couple of those zeroes, he'll still have more money than any of us would ever earn in our lives. Jeff Bezos, you da man! Will you be my Glucose Guardian? © Reuters Now, let's open the second position gate for Bill Gates, and he doesn't need any introductions, but let's just say he's a little soft, one might say he's micro soft. Side note – if I was paid for puns, I would probably be as rich as Billy here. Not that far behind Jeff, Bill Gates is worth $90 billion. © Reuters Well, then Mark Zuckerberg comes in at number five with the net worth of $71 billion. © Reuters But, let's now move a little close to home. The richest person in India is, as expected, Mukesh Ambani, who comes in at number 19 on the list and is worth $40.1 billion. © Reuters Well, there's more good news for Indians! According to the list, there are 121 billionaires in the country, which is 19 more than last year. But wait, there's more! India also has the third largest group of the ultra-rich, right after US, with 585 and China, with 373. One more important pepeoplerson on the list that we cannot miss is obviously Donald Trump. Even though he is a part of this elite group, he did see his fortune sink by about $400 million to $3.1 billion during his first year in office. © Reuters Let's continue our education about the rich people. This was the first time that Jeff Bezos took the top spot in the list and the coolest part is that he did not just claim the first position, he also became the first person to break the $100 billion barrier.
