Since creating his online bookseller in 1994, Amazon's founder and chief executive has turned the company into the biggest retailer on the Web, with annual sales of more than $48 billion. In 2007, Bezos introduced the Kindle electronic book reader. It's now Amazon's top-selling item. The company is also a leading provider of cloud computer services.
Amazon.com Inc. packed its new Fire Phone with features such as an image-recognition tool so people can quickly purchase items from its online store. Jeff Bezos may need more than that to get customers to pay up for the handset.
Yahoo! Inc. Chief Executive Officer Marissa Mayer, an active dealmaker this year, is among the invited guests at the annual Allen & Co. Conference in Sun Valley, Idaho, according to a person with a copy of the list.
