What's Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Laughing At?

By: Ina Steiner

Jeff Bezos was on Comedy Central's the Daily Show talking about the Kindle, Amazon's reading device (which is being compared to the Apple iPod for the reading set). Valleywag shows a video clip with a compilation of Jeff laughing throughout the interview. I laughed out loud myself while watching - laughter is infectious. But I wondered what had Jeff so full of glee - any thoughts on what is really making Jeff so happy these days?

You'd be in a happy mood if your long-term investment into Amazon is starting to pay off big time!

His laugh kind of sounds evil when it is compiled that way.

I just saw the full segment on television in rerun, I like Jon Stewart's description of Amazon's business model. Jeff Bezos definitely has a good sense of humor.

No matter what anyone says Jeff is laughing at John Donahoe...Jeff can't believe his incredibly good luck in Ebay's struggle to look like Amazon ;-)

I bet after Ebay falls hard Jeff will send a case of expensive champagne to Donahoe LOL

He's probably supporting Meg's run for Governor of California.  That's pretty funny!

OR, maybe he is involved in getting ebay's  sales figures down, in order to buy them out CHEAPLY.

This guy's like a contagion on TV right now.  I keep expecting him to have a guest appearance on "Two and a Half Men" at any moment.  I've seen him on 8 programs in 3 days.  Put a sock in it already, buddy.

He's laughing at the fact that he backs up the AVAYA corp. who just fired hundreds of American workers so they could send the work to India where they're are no labor laws and work for pennies! AVAYA has abandoned the American people for a buck.
