Sunday morning tech fix: NY Times on "TV Transformed"; AWS conference kicks off; Subarus flying off the shelf

A few items that might spark your interest on a beautiful (?) Sunday morning:

The New York Times has a special mini-section entitled "TV Transformed" that has a few articles about the rapidly changing industry, including challenges to our own big dog Comcast.

Amazon kicks off its annual AWS re:Invent 2015 conference on Tuesday in Las Vegas. That's about its powerful (~ $6 billion annual revenues) cloud computing business, Amazon Web Services, not about how to buy a toaster for $9.99. Some rumors: A closer "buddy-buddy" relationship with one-time competitor Backspace, and a super fast, in-memory relational database. I'll also track what noise local companies are making in Vegas.

And Camden County's Subaru of America saw the highest percentage increase of any US auto company in terms of US sales, as Bloomberg reports, growing 28% year-over-year last month to 53,000 units. And that's part of a longer-term trend.
