The extended promotion means it has either worked incredibly well or Amazon is fearful to squander built-up goodwill by piling on more charges. Either way, bandwidth is clearly not their budget buster, but will they end up having to offer complimentary inbound transfers forever? People can get used to "free" pretty quick, and some might take it hard if it goes away.
Salesforce.com still rolling in clover
Removing practically any chance of wiping that toothy, cat's-got-the-canary grin off Marc Benioff's face this year, Salesforce.com has announced that it is raising its full-year revenue expectations.
For those unfamiliar with the stock-market racket, even companies that are doing very well prefer to officially downplay their earnings estimates; this is to get a PR boost when they beat those expectations. That's also why not beating earnings estimates is seen as such a big deal, since everyone already knows this.
Salesforce.com raising its own estimate of how much money it will make is a little gratuitous, like being far enough out in front of the pack at the Tour de France to pop a wheelie, stop for a snack, take a quick nap and still win the stage.
