Jeff Bezos suffers kidney stone attack while vacationing
Amazon founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos, was airlifted from a cruise sailing at the Galapagos Islands. According to Drew Herdener, a spokesman for Amazon, Bezos was on a vacation on New Year's Day when he suffered a kidney stone attack.
He was eventually flown by an Ecuadorian navy helicopter from the ship to his private jet on Baltra Island. "I sent Jeff your note and here's what he sent back: 'Galapagos: five stars. Kidney stones: zero stars,'" Herdener said.
Apart from owning the largest Internet retailer today, Bezos also owns a space exploration company called Blue Origin, and recently acquired the reputable newspaper company, The Washington Post.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
