Apple also has 16.7 million IPs. And AT&T has the same. And the US postal service - they don't even deliver email (nor real mail anymore). The US DoD has 233M IPv4 addresses ($9B in market value). That's like 5% of all IPs ever available. And small ISPs struggle to get 250.

IPv4 addresses used to be gratis. Today they're selling for ~40 USD each. Ford (!!) got 16.7 million IPs for free, hardly using them. Today they're worth $670M, a better value increase than any crypto currency. At the same time new ISPs can't be started because lack of IPs.

@dcid
I've heard multiple stories like this, but I also know 2 persons working 't Amazon calling it an amazing employer. I guess they work in a department where margins don't matter and are on the good side. It saddens me that stories like these exist in 2021, slavery shouldn't exist but clearly it does

If you think your job sucks, at least you don't work at Amazon:

Fastly is on the news today for a widespread outage that took many big sites down.

At the same time, their stock is up almost 7%.

I guess any news is good news for the stock market and the auto trading bots.
