Los Angeles (CNN) - Torrential rains moved walls of rock and mud Friday in South California, burying homes in one neighborhood, closing a coastal highway, and prompting evacuations of foothill communities imperiled by landslides.
The damage marked the second day of a fierce storm slamming the Pacific Coast that, in California, served to trade one natural disaster for another, namely the state's record drought of the past three years.
At a minimum, the biggest storm in years slaked the dry earth, but it is coming at a high price for many people.
Amazon's C.E.O. Jeff Bezos says it's all about the customer. One goal is to sell "premium products at non-premium prices." In other words, sell tablets at low prices and reap the rewards when a late night television binger buys all five seasons of "Breaking Bad" at once.

But what about Bezos's latest move? His $250 million buy-in to the newspaper business?

Google is betting big with its forthcoming "Google glass."
Apple, meanwhile, is rumored to be coming out with a smartwatch. Apple may very well dominate, but it will be late to the party.
The idea for the Pebble smartwatch came "when I was cycling, and I had my phone in my pocket, and I wanted to see what was happening on my phone, who was emailing me, who was texting me, who was calling me, without having to take my phone out of my pants," said Eric Migicovsky, inventor and CEO at Pebble.
