As a former Best Buy employee, the primary color is blue. We refer to the sales people as blue shirts, the accent color is yellow.
Sorry Linus but Luke is right lol. 🤷♂
@smush your god dam right got fooled myself
@simon fish Isn't Ikea the same as Best Buy with it's primary color being blue with some yellow used. Like the logo is a blue backgrun, yellow oval and blue text. Their buildings are also blue with thetext Ikea in yellow.
Ikea is yellow 🟡 might be confusing the two
Companies like Amazon shouldn't be allowed to continually devour everything smaller than them and burrow their way in to every aspect of a country like a parasite. They should have to create their own infrastructure given how big and well funded they are, they shouldn't be allowed to keep acquiring smaller businesses and monopolising
Crazy idea, but maybe there should be serious federal limitations on company acquisition and merging, like once you're big enough, you can't sell, or you have to split up etc.
@Bảo Quốc you got the joke
@None i don't know if it's sarcasm or not but it's the average American narcissism like it
WhAt R u, A cOmMi/SociAl?
Health services are new for Amazon. I wouldn't call it a monopoly. If anything they bought a company with a larger footprint in an industry than them.
Is it a perfect situation? Give me an example of what is. But defending how healthcare and pharma is already run in this country isn't it. Maybe this will have some positive impact on the expense to consumers on healthcare.
As for providing their own infrastructure, you act like they didn't start in a garage and build to where they currently are. Hell, the NFL leases Amazon Web Services. That's definitely their own product/infrastructure they designed.
US antitrust feels like kind of a joke
@Elijah Theurer name 1 thing reagan did bad personally. Besides the iran contra?
Reagan was a very bad president
I love when Linus is wrong and he knows it, it's hilarious. BTW once I accidentally went to a Best Buy in a blue, collared t-shirt and people immediately came up to me for tech advise.
I use to think turning my home into a smart home would be a good idea, but over the last couple of years I've come to realize that in the end it will be a bad idea.
It is a good idea, you just have to invest into doing it locally, through something like a Raspberry Pi or Optiplex-based server. Don't pass none of ya shit through the cloud or random brands that do What They Want(TM).
There are smart homes based on raspberry pis that don't need any internet connection I'm pretty sure. Still the best way is just to not have a smart home
@Everyone's favorite uncle That's true. Honestly I'm getting to the point that I don't want anything smart in my home, but you just cannot get away from certain things.
To be fair smartphones are just a very smart way to introduce cameras and mics into everyone’s homes
This is super smart. You could totally increase the amount of Amazon recommendations for high sugar foods to people with a diabetes risk and then get them to buy expensive medication from you.
I'm going to buy a couple shares. This is great!
So at what point do we start actually enforcing our antitrust laws? Cause this is rapidly approaching the point of no return
@Scout Trooper Microsoft has been forced to split up before I assume that's coming for Amazon
@Scout Trooper Microsoft was already found to be a monopoly at one point, that's probably why there is more pressure on them
They're slowly creeping towards being able to just start their own company towns. They have food & commodity provisions, now healthcare, next is housing & they'll be set.
When Microsoft wants to buy a gaming publisher
To address one of the concerns, Amazon can’t use your medical data on their whim as medical data are protected under the HIPAA(Analogous to PHIPA in several Canadian provinces and PIPEDA on the federal level). You can opt in to provide your medical data(and the companies might try to lure you in with benefits) but unless you explicitly consent they can’t do anything even if Amazon owns your primary medical service provider.
Agreed, I work as DBA for healthcare and there is both HIPAA and HITECH rules and regulations. In a nutshell medically identifiable information is protected. Amazon could remove all medically identifiable information and Datamine common health issues or health trends across all users, but they are not allowed to tie your medical information back to your Amazon account.
I've been a One Medical patient/client for about 10 years. I was blown away when it was announced to us last week. I'm not happy about it. If only Amazon used all this data for good.....
"Amazon is happy to provide a 15% rate discount to One Medical patients who purchase healthy meals from Whole Foods (read: a 15% surcharge on patients who don't)...."
It's always funny how many people don't realize late payment fees and early payment discounts are the same exact thing.
Never thought someone could one-up Unilever owning both beauty product companies and Ben & Jerry's but here we are.
Man I hate Amazon. But why does AWS have to be so good?! It's the only Amazon service I regularly use (which admittedly is for work, but also it works _really well_ )
How I feel about a lot of the services I use from Amazon and Google. The price is great and the service is good, making going for alternatives a really bad choice for me despite being unhappy that they're taking over everything
We are witnessing the birth of a genuine dystopia.
Best Buy even call their staff blue shirts. 100% blue
@Da555nnyNYCT Not in the U.S. but I do specify US because the Canadian Best Buy is a separate entity oddly enough. Also it is Blue. Source: I work at a U.S. Best Buy
Yellow shirts i think are new hires in training.
@Josh R Asset Protection people used to be yellow, but in the U.S. they phased out these yellow uniforms
Yellow for some staff, pretty sure the doorman is always yellow in my local best buy
I can't wait for my Amazon prime health insurance, car insurance, and to live in my Amazon home
Whatever happened to that Amazon self service shop that Linus reviewed a few years ago? Did they do more of them or not?
You CHOOSE to give them your personal information. If you don't want to - get out of your house and do your shopping or doctor's appointments locally. As large as they are, they don't have a monopoly, yet.
Can't wait for my doctor to offer me 40 of the same "gaming chair office chair recliner gamer chair comfortable quality leather breathe ventilation performance stool chair" from 40 different brands that read like someone slammed the keyboard.
I love it. In the future when I sneeze my dot's can order some big pharma stuff to make sure I'm healthy. 🤣
It says something that they forgot AWS, which hosts a significant fraction of the internet
You guys are so dramatic. I love it.
Just a reminder that aside frim the cronyist partnership with politicians, companies get here because people pay for their services instead of someone else.
If you don't like big business, then don't ignore one of the biggest players in the scene.
Bezos watched Wall-E and just thought "That's a great idea"
I didn't know that the yellow tag was the old logo. I have a Best Buy by me and it still has the giant yellow tag on the building.
Call me a clown but as a kid with aspirations, I wanted to be a competitor against Amazon but solely in the medical field. And now they’ve already gone and done that. Now I don’t know what to have as my future dreams ;-;
While Amazon is allowed to ship some goods in Switzerland, there's no Swiss Amazon. It was fought strongly, because it was clear to everyone that their mere presence here would have disrupted much more than some online retailers. Societal equilibrium is very delicate. Elephants are not welcome in this crystal shop.
Good thing about Amazon taking over is more competition vs other similar brands, bad thing is monopoly over life like in Wall-E
Finally, your health, a commodity you get to lose!
Does anyone actually buy food on Amazon? It's so much faster to hop over to the store.
WHAT SOFTWARE does DR. Amazon use for neck issues reported by S-oni for using their own controllers and peripherals.
Sounds like the only logical way to stop this (which wont happen..) is to only allow a company or conglomorate to be in one business "sector". I know it would stunt companies trying to do good but for the greater good it needs to segregate.
Plus conglomerates are called such precisely because they operate in multiple industries
Horrible idea, then companies like sony, yamaha, seimens etc wont be allowed to exist. The fact that they are heavily diversified is what allows them to continue growing, leverage their strengths and survive if one industry is in a downturn
as a former BestBuy employee, the main color is blue with a yellow accent.
I'm a big fan of the title for this clip lol. It's cute.
I'm kinda jaded by all this late stage capitalism but uhh I'm real invested in is Best Buys primary color blue or yellow.
Amazon also bought Gilroy farms recently.
pepperridge farm remembers
Best Buy Blue for sales
Yellow for Loss Prevention
White for Geek Squad.
Black for Warehouse
Anti-trust and privacy legislation is as effective against monopolistic behavior as boosters are against the spread/contraction of the virus.
Amazon saw the old Company Towns and thought ah hell why not do that with the world
Anyone remember company towns? A company will start a business, usually a mine, and basically build a town around the mine for their workers. They would pay their employees with vouchers that they could only use at the store in town, also owned by the company. They owned your house, your tools, your job, and you and you couldn't leave.
The US is becoming one massive company town.
Jamestown was a tobacco company town
USA's history is closely related to company town history
Always has been
0:48 Amazing point, honestly didn't think of that.
L Linus. Even their whole website is blue. Yellow is merely their accent color. Similar to how Walmart’s logo is a yellow star thing, but their branding itself is blue.
I don't really understand the argument here about Amazon and medical. They already have Amazon pharmacy which has been great even for people with no medical insurance. Corporations already have a hand in most medical business anyway, and that's all any medical or medicine is now anyway, a business.
Currently working for a company that works with Amazon.
These pricks have non-existent customer support and when their shit starts to think, they peddle it over to everyone else around them and have the gull to put other businesses' phone numbers in their automated voice service so that you get transferred elsewhere when you want to talk to them.
I sincerely hope for a market shift of some sort that does Amazon in so badly they cease to exist as a company.
I'm sick of this monopoly horse shit.
Oh my God this is fucking terrifying.
Luke may have been thinking of the Blockbuster logo instead of Best Buy. I also thought the background was blue.
Maybe the largest colour for Best Buy is blue by volume, but yellow is absolutely the eyecatch colour. That makes Best Buy yellow in my books.
I think my one disagreement with Linus and Luke is on price. Amazon is more likely to start a “race to the bottom” on healthcare. It will become more accessible and cheaper, but at really low quality. It just accelerates the concept of pay-for-play in the quality of your healthcare (even among those with health insurance).
@John Samuel people were saying it the early 2000s with ebay lol.
run the competition into the ground via anti-competitive practices, then when they're all buried crank prices to the limit of what people will pay. I mean hey, it's only your life on the line after all...
@William Brall people have been saying that since I was in college 😅. I been hearing it since 2015. I used to believe that as well. Now I am not sure
@John Samuel It is coming. Right now they are screwing over sellers. Once all of those are dead, prices go up.
In the states we call Best buy workers blueshirts.
I am pro consumer and anti corporate greed, BUT I will say while Amazon has put countless small business owners out of business, or at least LESS business…they have given consumers a very cheap way to buy nearly everything and get it shipped in a matter of days.
So on one note they suck, and anti trust needs to be stricter. On the other hand they have provided us with the easiest access to products we have ever had for an affordable price.
Amazon's been amazing in rural Australia. I can now buy things I wouldn't have had a hope getting otherwise. Especially with free postage, it's a win win.
Yeah, I don't get the Amazon hate. Not having to buy things from a store is just so convenient. I could never go back.
@Traplover that's the thing: they might not do so. Because it's not necessarily actually profitable, but it's also illegal. Steam, for example, has been more or less a monopoly for years, and it's the best platform from the standpoint of a consumer. And there are other examples of consumer-friendly monopolies, although most of them are government-owned. But still, the view that monopolies = bad might be outdated. Unregulated monopolies are bad, that's for sure.
That's the pathway to monopoly. Underprice your competitor til they close or you buy them out. After being a monopoly, increase the prices
can't wait for Elon musk to acquire Walmart
Best Buy is yellow and blue but Yellow is the colour they're most associated with imho. Blue is just a nice colour that goes well with retail.
Tbh I think the yellow is just their heritage and as they've evolved over the years they've phased it out.
@Bảo Quốc makes sense.
color blue seems have some association with trust
I will say, Amazon Pharmacy has been good to me. It's cheaper than my insurance and it arrives pretty quickly.
Hippa please save us pff
My sister says Amazon doctors are amazing. She slipped off a ladder and they were great to her. According to her the doctors are the best and only reason to work with Amazon.
Recently when to Shoreditch in London and saw an Amazon hair salon 😭
Too bad Canadians who cannot get a family doctor can't take advantage of this service
Now amazone know, if you don't show up and your "sick"
Circuit City salespeople were based on commission and their shirts were r red as well
There color is yellow on the logo.. As the stores have blue carpet, blue employee shirts, and blue signs in the store. So blue is a big part in there brand
Have you guys seen the potential leak where the USB C iPhone will limit charging unless the cord is MFi Certified?
yet microsoft gets pelted by the FTC over the AKB buyout, but amazon can just buy whatever they want
It's really quite simple... don't use their service if you don't want too. You know you don't have to have a ring doorbell camera right?
Dr Bezo's will see you now. :D Also now you will get amazon ads based on your health records to.
When I think of best buy it is yellow cause Walmart is blue to me.
Best Buy is blue. As an employee there, it's very blue lol
Best buy definitely blue 💙
Absolutely blue; like Walmart.
The UK have this for free it's called NHS 111
Amazon is the new "East India Company"
Lol Luke, privacy is dead
You down with OCP? Yeah you know me
Yeah were moving closer to the Dystopia of Cyberpunk or Blade runner every day…
As a best buy employee of 10 years, it's blue
Amazon wants to be the Samsung of the US. Or the world.
Best Buy is Blue AND Yellow...
I'm Blue baba bee bo do da
Baba dee bab do baba de da do da
Thanks guys, now Blue is in my head.
We're heading towards idiocracy but Amazon instead of Costco.
Wait, so the FTC took a close look at this and thought it was fine?!?!? HOW?
Buy n Large, oh they said it
Don't get the issue. If the service is good then people will use it.
no competition is NO good, don't miss the point
Linus, you’re wrong. The employees are literally called Blue Shirts. The tag is the only thing yellow.
Alexsa please send me depression pills kek
Tbh, Best Buy is blue with a yellow accent
The uniform is blue, the floor is blue, the building is blue. I don’t know. I think it’s blue.
The Walmart Title is White, does that mean their color is White?
This is DISTOPIAN AS FUHHHHHHH!!!!!
I would buy my healthcare from Linus
AMADOC AMADOC AMADOC
Tbf to linus the logo is yellow the employees shirts are blue
L for Linus. Best Buy is blue.
The wrong Amazon is burning.
I wish Bezos bought the Washington Commanders
You keep petabytes of footage in your hundreds of drives. But you can't record the WAN show in higher quality for PLclip? This looks awful even on 1080p
Wall-E reference is good and all. But have you seen Idiocracy (2006)? Prophetic.
blue.... the accent color is yellow
linus its blue! deal with it
Best Buy is blue
Buy n Large, it's your superstore. It's got all you need and so much more. Happiness is what we sell, that's why everyone loves BnL.
