    @I Play One On TV

    They already had to add a second click to their One-Click-Ordering, because too many people complained that they didn’t mean to order something.

    They know what you are thinking?

    I’ll pass.

    Reminds me too much of my ex-wife…

    I first read about data-driven marketing back in the ‘80s:


    The modern, computer-aided salesperson will know, as soon as a customer walks in, the customer’s name, the names of the customer’s family members and friends, their birthdays, and what they want based on previous purchases. All this will be in the data base, liked with the RFID chip on the customer’s store credit card, and slipped to the salesperson so he can sell more effectively.


    The fact that none of this was at all true back in the ‘80s didn’t stop the authors (the ones I read were from Harvard) from getting published as if this were fact.

    Time to log on to Amazon and pick some random item to look at, just before leaving for work each day.

    The next step after that is they just deliver it unordered and bill you for it knowing you really wanted it anyway!

    Exactly , then Obama can pass a law requiring you to pay for the item you did not order because he knows you wanted it!

    Obama can’t pass any laws. He’s not a legislature.

    As for lingering, Amazon must be shipping tons of porn babes, lolcatz, and doges. I’d like to see the warehouses these days.

    @Doctor Warbucks

    Going a step further there, Obama signed into law one that does exactly that and when it looked like a problem for him he unilaterally and illegally changed the conditions of the contract to keep from being the one held responsible for making an illegal social contract with the people he is supposedly serving.

    @Genome Project

    Yow, $45 a gallon!
    Did they mention there is also a $20 delivery fee?
