Well well well, 2 weeks after Azure announces their transcoder, look what happens :)

There's no way that Amazon heard Azure's announcement and shipped this within two weeks from scratch.

The announcement 2 weeks ago was just for public availability. Its been public knowledge for much longer. See this from last April: http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2012/04/16/announcing...

I'm sorry for the above comment everyone. Reddit has infected my humor. I shouldn't have brought it here. :(

Azure has no shot at this market....none.

Curious...why you say that?

Azure, in general, is just burning money with no significant uptake. Friends who work there say there aren't even significant internal uses. Just based on that I'd be dubious of any new Azure service dominating their segment. Maybe they'll buy themselves another Xbox situation, but I don't see it yet.
