Your characterization of amazon is incorrect. I know this because I worked there for many years.

Amazon does not improve the core functionality. In fact a prominent reproducible bug has remained on their site for all the years since I left despite reporting it before I left. There simply is no team with the expertise or mandate to fix it.

Amazon is a hype machine and just a dumb retailer. They throw projects at the wall to see what will stick. The dev team is disbanded before the press releases are out the door-- just anything that seems innovative to get them press to pump their stock price is the priority. They have no competent engineering going on- good engineers but never given the freedom to make a good product.
