How Was "Amazon.com" Named?
Founded as Cadabra.com by Jeff Bezos in 1994 and launched in 1995, Amazon.com began as an online bookstore, though it soon diversified its product lines, adding DVDs, music CDs, computer software, video games, electronics, like mp3 players, apparel, furniture, food, and more. Amazon has established separate websites in Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, France, China and Japan and it ships globally on selected products. Bezos renamed his company "Amazon" after the world's most voluminous river.
