- 1) DISCUSSION QUESTION
Law is always evolving. It slowly changes over time in response to its environment. In business, new types of products, services and practices drive the development of law as it is forced to adapt to situations we can’t even think about today. A great example is the “gig” economy created by companies such as Uber and Lyft and their “do it yourself” ride service.
What new developments do you think will present the need to rethink and re-evaluate how business law concepts apply today or in the future?
2) PEER REVIEW #1 (FELICIA)
I think with the development of so many different social media sites and children as young as two watching Youtube videos and I know this because my two-year granddaughter watches it daily. I think the need for much more stricter parental guidance so that our children can be safe against pedophiles if the companies don’t control these things they can face lawsuits from parents for the information they are allowing on their websites unless they put a restriction on. the age of the viewer then its up to the parents to control if the children are watching or not. Should Internet companies or social sites be held liable for the content they allow on their sites if it puts children in harm’s way? I say Yes.
Amazon is a billion-dollar corporation who has millions of employees working for CEO Jeff Bezos. Bezos is always thinking ahead of everyone else when it comes to creating new technology to make his consumers happy by keeping them loyal to his business. Bezos business mindset and technology are changing the way business is conducted every day. Consumers want their packages fast and for a reasonable price. He was the first to start 2-day shipping for prime members. Stores were losing money, so they had to follow suit to compete with their competitor. Now Amazon is considering using drones to deliver packages to their consumers called Prime Air. The drones deliver packages to customers in 30 minutes or less. Also, the company hires contractors to deliver packages using their cars. About a year and a half filed a patent application for the grocery store called Amazon Go allowing shoppers to pick items and leave without stopping at a cashier station or kiosk. This concept is a great convenience for consumers because the store uses cameras, sensors that would be able to identify shoppers and the items they have chosen. The advance technology is a cost-effective way to compete with a traditional retailer who hires people to work operate registers. I love this thought of Amazon Go in my community because there are times I want to grab and go without having to deal with anyone. An individual has to have an Amazon account and Amazon Go app to enter the store to buy your items. Whose to say that someone would not be able to figure out a way to steal items even though there are tons of cameras every where. There are cameras that will be able to identify you.
