What Google has in search infrastructure, Amazon has in retail infrastructure, so for Google, third party help is important. Daniel Alegre, Google's president for retail and shopping, told Reuters exclusively.

Judy is being directed by Tony nominee Rupert Goold (King Charles III) and sees Zellweger joined in the cast by Jessie Buckley (War and Peace), Finn Wittrock (American Horror Story) and Michael Gambon (Harry Potter).
