There's so much happening on Wall Street it's hard to link news announcements, but I'm curious why Amazon stock is flat to up a bit today (plus 0.5 percent in a down market, at last check) despite the competition from Google's new App Engine hosting service.
Google investors don't seem overly moved by the announcement either, even though it opens a broad new front in the company's potentially awesome developer and tools business. GOOG was down about 2 percent at last check.
