The Entire D6 Interview With Amazon.com's Jeff Bezos (1 of 4)

We’re posting all the interviews from the sixth D: All Things Digital conference that took place in late May.

In this video, Bezos talks about why he has moved Amazon (AMZN) beyond the online retail business and the development of the Kindle and e-books.
