New Prime subscriptions show no signs of slowing down, however, with a record number of new members joining in 2017, both in the USA and around the world.
2017 was also the best year ever for Amazon's own hardware (like Echo, Echo Dot, Fire TV Stick and Alexia) and Amazon Web Services' turnover surpassed 20 billion dollars for the first time.
Kathua: 15 students, 2 cops hurt in clashes
In north Kashmir's Baramulla , security forces burst teargas shells to disperse the students of Degree College, Sopore. Massive clashes were reported from Tral after the students of Degree college protested against the horrific gang rape.

That median pay figure is skewed by the large number of Amazon's more than 560,000 employees who work in its package warehouses, distribution centers, Whole Foods grocery stores and other places far from the ping-pong tables, endless free kale chips and yoga rooms of Silicon Valley's rich tech campuses. In total the company sold "tens of millions" of the devices.
This year it also has a warning for competitors: Amazon is diving even deeper into product sales, and it's a real contender in the streaming content space.
