After Rampage And Jumanji Dwayne'The Rock Johnson Has A New Fan- Amazon's Jeff Bezos

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has finally answered a question his company has declined to answer for more than a decade. This is the first time he's publicly stated how many Prime members the company has signed up.

For those who wonder how many Amazon Prime members there are on planet Earth, it's more than 100 million, Bezos said.

Among other highlights in the filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Bezos said the Amazon Web Services cloud-computing unit is on a $20 billion annual revenue run rate, and is accelerating its expertise in artificial intelligence.

Prime members pay $99 a year, or $49 for students, to receive free, expedited shipping on more than 100 million items.

Amazon's annual proxy statement includes something you don't see every day: details on how much money the e-commerce giant spends with one of the nation's top newspapers.
